The two countries had agreed on a 100-day cease-fire agreement on Thursday, a day after a bloody day of fighting.

On Wednesday, the countries exchanged fire, leading to an Azerbaijani soldier’s death in Baku, the capital. Gunfire broke out after Azerbaijan’s armed forces sent a truck carrying military ammunition across the border.

Azerbaijan earlier responded to a provocation by Armenia by destroying two Armenian tanks.

Armenia later claimed it was forced to retaliate when Azerbaijani tanks entered the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region.

Armenia and Azerbaijan have been at odds since 1991 when Azerbaijan gained independence. The two countries each rule a part of Nagorno-Karabakh.
