After a long period of peace in Nagerno-Karabakh, a war between Armenia and Azerbaijan seems to be erupting once again. Armenia has said that 15 of its soldiers have been killed and 12 others have been taken prisoner in the attack in Azerbaijan. Armenia, which is facing attacks from Azerbaijan, has appealed to Russia for help. Armenia has also admitted that it has lost two of its fronts. Armenia has also declared ceasefire after this conflict.
It is the deadliest conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan last year after 44 days of war. Last year’s war killed at least 6,500 people. At the same time, Azerbaijan had started achieving great success. In this conflict Armenia had to lose a large area in Karabakh. After this Russia made a peace agreement and deployed two thousand of its peacekeepers in the area.
At least 15 soldiers killed and 12 others caught alive
Turkey strongly supported Azerbaijan in this conflict and its drone planes caused a lot of destruction. Armenia’s defense ministry said in its latest statement that its troops were hit by cannonballs and gunfire fired by Azerbaijan. The ministry said that at least 15 of its soldiers have died and 12 others have been captured alive. Not only this, Azerbaijan has captured two fronts of its war.
Armenia has now appealed to Russia for help and said that Azerbaijan is attacking its land. Armenia has referred to Russia’s 1987 treaty, which states that Russia will defend Armenia. Russia has a military base in Armenia. Not only this, Russian peacekeepers are present in Karabakh. On the other hand, Azerbaijan has claimed that it has launched a military operation after provocation by Armenia.
Nagarno-Karabakh region, part of Azerbaijan
Until the 1990s, both Armenia and Azerbaijan were part of the Soviet Union. There have been many wars between the two countries in the mountainous area, but till now this dispute has not been resolved. The Nagarno-Karabakh region is internationally part of Azerbaijan but is occupied by ethnic groups from Armenia. In last year’s conflict, Azerbaijan had won and captured a large area of Karabakh.
