Azerbaijan’s Air Force destroyed an Armenian Su-25 attack plane, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry said on Sunday.

“On October 18 at 12:30 (11:30 Moscow Time) Azerbaijan’s Air Force downed another Su-25 attack plane of Armenia’s Armed Forces, which tried to carry out air strikes on the Azerbaijani army’s positions in the Jabrayil direction,” the ministry said.

Armenian Defense Ministry Press Secretary Shushan Stepanyan dismissed Azerbaijan’s statement. “This statement is a blatant lie, we don’t have any downed plane,” she told TASS on Sunday.

On October 17, the Armenian and Azerbaijani Foreign Ministries declared an agreement to launch a humanitarian ceasefire from 00:00 local time on October 18.
