Fighting Continues Between Armenia and Azerbaijan

What Happened:

  • Russia attempted to broker a cease-fire between Armenia an Azerbaijan who have been engaged in hostilities over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region. This is the heaviest engagement between the two forces in 25 years.

  • The truce was meant to go into effect on Saturday, however, new attacks continue to occur as both sides blame the other for not complying with the cease-fire.

  • The escalation of fighting in the region raises concerns that this could lead to a larger conflict that involves both Russia and Turkey.

  • The Nagorno-Karabakh region has been an area of dispute for many years and has been under Armenian control since 1994 at the end of a separatist war.
