Azerbaijan says 50 military personnel died in clashes with Armenia



Azerbaijan's defense ministry said on Sunday that 50 of its military personnel had been killed in clashes with neighboring Armenia over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region.

The clashes, which erupted on Saturday, are the worst in the region since a 1994 ceasefire agreement. Both Azerbaijan and Armenia have declared martial law and called up reservists.

The Nagorno-Karabakh region is internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan, but it has been under the control of Armenian forces since the end of a war in 1994.

Fighting has broken out between Armenia and Azerbaijan, with both sides blaming the other for starting the conflict. This is the latest in a long-running dispute between the two countries, which has its roots in the Soviet era.

Around 50 people have been reported killed and hundreds more wounded in the fighting, which began on Sunday morning. The Armenian military says that Azerbaijani forces began shelling its positions, while Azerbaijan says that Armenia started the fighting by attacking its positions.

The fighting is the heaviest since 2016, when a four-day war left around 100 people dead. Azerbaijan and Armenia have been locked in a conflict over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region for decades, and a ceasefire has been in place since 1994.

Both sides have called for international intervention to help resolve the conflict.


Armenia has not released information about the number of casualties they have suffered since the start of the conflict with Azerbaijan. This lack of transparency is deeply concerning, particularly given the reports of heavy fighting in the region.

The recent conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan has escalated rapidly, with both sides using heavy artillery and air strikes. This has resulted in many civilian casualties and has displaced thousands of people. The international community has urged both sides to cease hostilities and return to thenegotiating table.

The Armenian has accused Azerbaijan of aggression and has vowed to defend its people. Azerbaijan, on the other hand, has accused Armenia of occupying its territory and has vowed to retake what it sees as its rightful land.

This conflict has roots that go back centuries, and it does not seem like either side is willing to back down. With both sides dug in and using heavy weaponry, it seems unlikely that this conflict will be resolved anytime soon.5.Residents of the border towns are being evacuated.
