Armenia and Azerbaijan accuse each other of violating the agreed ceasefire. After Russia mediated this, shots were fired again. There is no information about other victims. Before that, around 100 soldiers died on both sides.
A day after the heavy fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan, the Caucasus republics accused each other of violating the agreed ceasefire. "The enemy has resumed its attack using artillery, mortars and large-caliber firearms" against Jermuk, the Armenian Defense Ministry said.
The heaviest fighting since the war between the two Caucasus republics two years ago flared up on Tuesday. At least 100 soldiers were killed altogether on both sides. According to Russia, it mediated a ceasefire between neighboring countries, which has now apparently been violated.
After an initial war in the 1990s, Armenia and Azerbaijan fought another war over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region in autumn 2020. The six-week fighting that left more than 6,500 dead ended with a Russian-brokered ceasefire agreement. Armenia had to give up large areas. At the beginning of August this year, violence flared up again.
