YEREVAN. – Azerbaijan violated the ceasefire, at its line of contact with Armenia and the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, 860 times in January 2013. 

The Azerbaijani Armed Forces made use of sniper weaponry 160 times and large-caliber weapons, around 20 times—including large-caliber sniper weaponry, 15 times—Armenian MOD press service informs.

But there were no casualties or injuries from the Armenian side.
