Mission: Explosions in Nagorno-Karabakh | JB

Meanwhile, there are reports that Azerbaijan has launched an operation of sorts in the region, which lies within Azerbaijan’s official borders, but in reality operates as a breakaway region under Armenia’s wing.

Azerbaijan says it informed Russia and Turkey about the operation.

According to information on social media from the Armenian side of Nagorno-Karabakh, the towns of the region are “under intense bombardment” after Azerbaijan launched a military operation in the region.

On Tuesday, the Azerbaijani Ministry of Defense demanded the “complete withdrawal” of Armenian forces from the region as a condition for peace in the region.

On the Armenian side, he denied that his country had forces in Nagorno-Karabakh.

“The Armenian Ministry of Defense has repeatedly announced that the Republic of Armenia has no army in Nagorno-Karabakh,” the Armenian Ministry of Defense said on Tuesday.

In recent months, tensions have escalated between arch-enemies Armenia and Azerbaijan. This can be seen in the form of a military build-up and mutual accusations of violating a Russian-brokered ceasefire after fighting in 2020, in which more than 6,500 people were killed.

On Monday, aid shipments were allowed to pass through the so-called Latgin corridor to Nagorno-Karabakh. The Azerbaijani army has closed the road, the only land link between the breakaway region and Armenia, since last year, in violation of the ceasefire agreement.

Nagorno-Karabakh is a mountainous region in the South Caucasus located within the borders of Azerbaijan, but in fact it is a breakaway region under the wing of Armenia, and the majority of its population are Armenians. The region was at the heart of the decades-long regional conflict between the two countries, and two wars broke out in the region.

In August and September 2020, thousands of fighters were killed over the course of six weeks. Russia then brokered a ceasefire agreement, which saw Armenia cede parts of territory it had controlled for decades, while Russia deployed peacekeepers guarding the five-kilometre-wide Latgin corridor to ensure free passage between Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh.

In late June, deadly fighting broke out in the long-disputed region. The parties continued to exchange accusations of violating the ceasefire that was supposed to prevail in the region.

Baku and Yerevan are trying to negotiate a peace agreement with the help of the European Union and the United States, whose diplomatic intervention in the Caucasus has angered Russia.
