原文:

Armenian military officials on Oct. 18, 2020, reported artillery shelling and missile strikes by Azerbaijani forces in the conflict zone overnight. In the morning, ‘the enemy launched an attack in the southern direction,’ and there were ‘casualties and wounded on both sides,’ Armenian Defense Ministry spokeswoman Shushan Stepanyan said.

Azerbaijan's Defense Ministry, in turn, maintained that Armenian forces used mortars and artillery in the conflict zone overnight despite the cease-fire and in the morning attempted attacks in several directions. The ministry accused Armenia of using large-caliber weapons to attack the positions of the Azerbaijani army in two regions north of Nagorno-Karabakh along the border, a claim Armenian military officials denied.

中譯:

亞美尼亞軍方官員於2020年10月18日表示,亞塞拜然部隊於衝突地區,進行了整夜的砲擊及飛彈攻擊。亞美尼亞國防部發言人史岱潘揚表示,清晨時分,敵軍向南方發動一波攻擊,雙方均有傷亡。

亞塞拜然國防部回應前述說法,堅稱亞美尼亞部隊不顧停火協議,徹夜於衝突地區運用迫砲及砲兵進行攻擊,並於清晨試圖朝多個方向攻擊。該部指控亞美尼亞以大口徑武器,向亞美尼亞陸軍位於納卡自治區沿兩國交界北部兩個地區的陣地進行攻擊,惟亞美尼亞軍方官員否認此一說詞。
