Despite calls by the UN and the international community for an immediate cessation of hostilities, large-scale armed clashes between Armenians and Azerbaijanis continue today for the fourth consecutive day in the mountainous enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh, Artsaj, as it is called by its own inhabitants.
The Azerbaijani Ministry of Defense says that since Sunday, when the fighting broke out, Armenia has suffered 2,000 casualties among the dead and wounded and lost considerable military equipment, including 130 tanks. But of its own losses Baku does not report.
For its part, the Armenian Ministry of Defense has released a new video showing an attack on an Azerbaijani army convoy. The Nagorno-Karabakh forces also report the destruction this morning of two Azerbaijani drones as they tried to fly over Stepanakert, the capital of the enclave.
Meanwhile, the Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinian declared during a press conference that “Armenia was always ready for a peaceful solution of the Karabakh problem. However, he warned that “this is not the right time to talk about an Armenia-Azerbaijan-Russia summit, at a time when there is intense fighting”.
As it could not be otherwise, Turkey is also involved in this conflict, supporting the offensive of Azerbaijan, adding one more chapter to the list of problems it is creating in its area of influence.
