An Azerbaijani soldier was martyred in a clash at Armenia-Azerbaijan frontline, according to Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry on Tuesday.

In a statement, the ministry said Armenian forces violated the cease-fire and martyred a soldier, identified as Ellez Ellezov, in the shooting.

Azerbaijan and Armenia remain in dispute over the occupied Karabakh region. Karabakh broke away from Azerbaijan in 1991 with Armenian military' support, and a peace process has yet to be implemented.
