Azerbaijan-Armenia military conflict, civilian casualties

Azerbaijan-Armenia military clash with civilians with large numbers of casualties September 28 at 9:19 p.m.

The military conflict over the disputed areas of Azerbaijan and Armenia in the former Soviet Union has entered its second day, with civilian casualties caused by attacks by tanks and mortars on both sides.

Azerbaijan and Armenia, the former Soviet Union, have been fighting for years over the autonomous province of Nagorno-Karabakh, located in western Azerbaijan and with many Armenian residents, and a major military conflict occurred on the 27th.

The fighting lasted 28 days, with 59 soldiers and two civilians killed and more than 100 civilians injured on the Armenian side, while six civilians were killed and 26 injured on the Azerbaijani side.

In the video from the site, attacks by tanks and mortars have also been confirmed, and the battle is in full swing.

The conflict between the two countries over Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Region has continued for more than 30 years, and after agreeing to a ceasefire in 1994, Russia, the United States and France have jointly brokered and pushed for peace.

However, Azerbaijan has not ceded Turkey and Armenia, which has a military alliance with Russia, as its backer, and tensions were escalating as early as July after armed clashes near the border.

In response to the fighting, Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov met by telephone with the foreign ministers of the two countries and called for talks to begin to stabilize the situation, and the EU-European Union has issued a statement calling for an immediate ceasefire, calling on both sides to take control of the situation.

However, the two countries have accused each other of “attacking each other” and are ready to issue martial law to prepare for a prolonged battle, increasing concerns about intensifying fighting.
