A temporary ceasefire between the Azerbaijan Republic and Armenia that came into effect Saturday after almost two weeks of fighting over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region appears fragile, with Azerbaijan accusing Armenia of violating the terms of the agreement amid reports of casualties.

Iran Press/ Asia: Authorities in the Azerbaijan Republic said Sunday four women were among at least nine people killed when a residential building compound was hit during an Armenian bombardment of Ganja, Azerbaijan's second-largest city.

The attack most likely came from the ethnic Armenian enclave in Nagorno-Karabakh, according to Hikmet Hajiyev, an adviser to Azerbaijan President Ilham Aliyev.

At a press conference in Baku on Saturday, Hajiyev accused Armenia of "violating" the agreed terms.

"Azerbaijan has no claims to the territory of any other state. The goal is to ensure our territorial integrity. If Armenia continues its provocations to violate the ceasefire, Azerbaijan must respond," Hajiyev said.

Meanwhile, Armenia claimed that two people were killed by an Azerbaijani subversive group in the village of Hadrut. Azerbaijan denied the allegation.

A temporary ceasefire, which was announced after talks in Moscow that were brokered by Russia, came into effect at midday local time (4 a.m. ET) on Saturday.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said in a readout that the ceasefire was called for humanitarian purposes, allowing for the exchange of prisoners and the bodies of the deceased. It added that the parameters of the agreement would be agreed on separately.

The ceasefire came the day after UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet spoke of the suffering that the conflict was inflicting on civilians.

The Nagorno-Karabakh region is internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan, which has long said it will retake the territory.
