For the last few days, the conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia is becoming very fierce. Missiles falling continuously on residential areas are killing people. Residential buildings are being targeted in the ongoing conflict between the two. Meanwhile, a ceasefire has been tried again between the two countries.
Armenia and Azerbaijan once again tried to implement a ceasefire agreement from midnight amidst ongoing tension over Nagorno-Karabakh. The agreement between the two was reached a week ago by Russian mediation, but it was violated shortly after its implementation and the two sides blamed each other for it.
The foreign ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan announced the new agreement after a phone conversation with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. Lavrov appealed to both countries to abide by the Moscow agreement. The Nagorno-Karabakh region comes under the territory of Azerbaijan, but has been controlled by Armenia-backed Armenian ethnic groups since 1994.
The conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenian forces began on September 27 over the Nagorno-Karabakh region, in which hundreds of people have been killed. This is the first battle between the two countries on such a large scale in nearly 25 years.
