Armenia_Azerbaijan_clashes

There have been fresh clashes between Armenia and Azerbaijan creating havoc in both countries. This has been considered the deadliest clash between the two countries since 2020.

The blame for renewed fighting has been shifted between the countries killing almost the same number of people on both sides. Strangely, the Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The peace keeping efforts between both countries had been successful, up until now. According to Armenian sources, it was Azerbaijan that started the attack first. It was seen that Azerbaijan used artillery, mortar and small arms in its attack on Wednesday morning, the Armenian Defence Ministry said.

Complete emphasis has been put on dialogue as lives have been lost over worthless fighting. It seemed that the firing was done purposefully at a time when both countries might have been oblivious of an attack. Fighting started from Azerbaijani side; it has been confirmed by another source.

The fighting erupted minutes after midnight, with Azerbaijani forces unleashing an artillery barrage and drone attacks in many sections of Armenian territory, according to Armenia’s Defence Ministry.

Firing apparently reduces in the day and intensifies over the night. On the flipside, Azerbaijan’s Foreign Ministry was responding to a “large-scale provocation” by Armenia late on Monday and early on Tuesday. It said Armenian troops planted mines and fired on Azerbaijani military positions.

The two countries had been locked in decade-old conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh, which is part of Azerbaijan but has been under the control of ethnic Armenian forces backed by Armenia since a separatist war there ended in 1994.

Azerbaijan reclaimed large parts of Nagorno-Karabakh in a six-week war in 2020 that killed more than 6,600 people and ended with a Russia-brokered peace deal. Moscow deployed about 2,000 troops to the region to serve as peacekeepers under the deal. Kremlin has had its agenda in place to intervene and create a position of truce between the nations.
