Armenia, Azerbaijan battle for 2nd day as death toll rises in highly-disputed region

CA, 28 Sep 2020
Fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan escalated sharply on Monday in and around the disputed mountain territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, and at least 30 people were killed on the second day of heavy clashes.

The Azerbaijani Defense Ministry claimed that Armenian forces started shelling the town of Tartar on Monday morning, while Armenian officials said the fighting continued throughout the night and Baku resumed “offensive actions” in the morning.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Monday Armenia must immediately withdraw from Azeri lands which it is occupying and that it was time to end the crisis in Nagorno-Karabakh, while the Kremlin urged Azerbaijan and Armenia to stop all military activity.

The heavy fighting broke out on Sunday morning in the region that lies within Azerbaijan but has been under the control of ethnic Armenian forces backed by Armenia since 1994 at the end of a separatist war.

It was not immediately clear what sparked the fighting, the heaviest since clashes in July killed 16 people from both sides.
