Armenia and Azerbaijan forces have fought with heavy artillery and drones, leaving at least 16 people killed on both sides including an Azerbaijani general, in the worst outbreak of hostilities in years.

Skirmishes on the volatile border between the two south Caucasus nations began on Sunday. Azerbaijan said it has lost 11 servicemen and one civilian in three days of fighting, and Armenia said four of its troops were killed on Tuesday.

The two neighbours have been locked in conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh, a region of Azerbaijan that has been under the control of ethnic Armenian forces backed by Armenia since a war there ended in 1994. International efforts to settle the conflict have stalled.

Armenian and Azerbaijani forces have frequently engaged in clashes. The current skirmishes appear to mark the most serious spike in hostilities since 2016 when scores were killed in four days of fighting.

The latest incident began when Armenian and Azerbaijani troops exchanged fire in the northern section of their border. Officials in both countries blamed each other for starting the fighting and said that sporadic shelling has continued.

Azerbaijan’s defence ministry said two senior officers were killed in fighting on Tuesday along with five other servicemen.

Armenian officials claimed that Azerbaijani drones launched an attack on the town of Berd, targeting civilian infrastructure. Defence ministry spokeswoman Shushan Stepanyan said that one of Azerbaijani drones was downed.

Stepanyan also charged that the Azerbaijani military used civilians as shields, placing artillery close to the village of Dondar Gushchu in the Tovuz district about 10km (six miles) from the border.

The Azerbaijani military denied losing a drone and in turn claimed that its forces shot down an Armenian drone and destroyed an Armenian artillery system along with its crew.

As hostilities continued, Armenia also accused Azerbaijan of launching cyberattacks on Armenian government websites.

The Armenian prime minister, Nikol Pashinyan, on Monday accused Azerbaijan of provoking the clashes and warned that it would “bear responsibility for the unpredictable consequences”. The Azerbaijani president, Ilham Aliyev, denounced what he described as “another provocation of Armenia” and vowed to protect Azerbaijan’s national territory.

Turkey, which has close ethnic and cultural ties with Azerbaijan, has voiced strong support to Baku in the conflict.

The US and Russia, which co-chair the Minsk group of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe that has tried to negotiate a settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, have condemned the violence and called for restraint.

Russia’s foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov, had separate calls with his counterparts in Armenia and Azerbaijan on Monday to call for an immediate ceasefire.

Vladimir Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said that Moscow was “deeply worried” about the fighting and stands ready to play mediator.

The UN ecretary eneral, António Guterres, also expressed worry. His spokesman, Stéphane Dujarric, said in a statement that the UN chief “urges an immediate end to the fighting and calls on all involved to take immediate steps to deescalate the situation and refrain from provocative rhetoric”.

Kinda biradar mulk for them. Azeris also bark on Kashmir against us sometimes.
Azaris are scums. Anyone heard about cold blooded murder of Armenian private by the psycho Azari counterpart during a UN mission(NATO ?) at night by an axe in his dormitory ? And the pardon by the Azari court and his subsequent hero welcome ?
BTW Armania is almost 1/3 of Azerbaijan in size and has negligible outside support except from Russia, while both Israel and Turkey back Azaris which is almost a protectorate of Turkey.

The downing of the Elbit Hermes 900 UAV of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces by Armenian troops has been the first in history, says Russian-Israeli blogger Alexander Lapshin.

“In fact, this is the first time that a devise of this scale has been shot down. Until now, no one has been able to “get it”, despite the fact that such UAVs are constantly used during military actions in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Sudan, Afghanistan. These machines also control the border of the USA and Mexico, monitoring the actions of drug cartels; they have long been used in Colombia and Brazil to fight rebels and drug traffickers,” Lapshin said in a Facebook post.

Lapshin quoted a friend, who has long worked as engineer-instructor at Elbit Systems, which designs and manufactures this and other drones, as saying: “Only complete slobs and laymen could have put this “flying brain” of any army under attack.”


The fierce clashes erupted over the weekend and continued into Tuesday morning. Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry accused Armenia of violating a 1994 ceasefire dozens of times and of shelling Azerbaijani positions with mortars and grenade launchers. Armenia’s Defense Ministry, however, said the fighting started after Azerbaijani soldiers tried to cross the border and later shelled Armenian positions using tanks and mortars.

Azarbaijan with the active support of Turkey launched an attack on Armania. Armania declared state of emergency and mobilised all men above 18 for war
Armanian fighters destroying Azarbaijan tanks
Armania claimed to have shot down 2 Azarbaijan helicopters as well
We recently signed a deal with Armenia to supply swathi WLR systems. Does this mean we will continue to provide material support to them? I think we should stick it right up Erdogan's *censored*.. Continue to support Armenians

Erdogan is sending large number of Syrian terrorists to Azarbaijan to fight Armenia

Armenia is supported by whole of Christian world.

Christian world doesn't exist. Christian nations are ruled by secularists and they don't give a shit if Christians die as long as it's in the interest of their wider global objectives. Armenia is allied with Russia, and that is good enough reason for west not to do anything.

I wouldn't be surprised if they support islamists just like they did against Serbian Christians.
