Armenia accused Azerbaijan of attacking its territory 3

Armenia's Ministry of Defense accused the Azerbaijani army of attacking a unit of the country in the border town of Vardenis.

The Azerbaijani army opened fire on an Armenian military unit in the border town of Vardenis, a few kilometers from the breakaway region of Nagorno-Karabakh, but the situation has cooled down, the Armenian Ministry of Defense said in a statement on March 29.

A bus in the town of Vardenis burned down after being hit by an air strike from an Azerbaijani drone (UAV).

Fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan has entered its third day and is the worst clash since the two countries agreed to a ceasefire in May 1994.

Pro-Amernian forces in Nagorno-Karabakh said 84 of their soldiers were killed in the fighting.

Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry said both sides are trying to regain areas lost to the other side.

The Armenian side said fighting with Azerbaijan took place all night.

The bus burned down after an Azerbaijani UAV air strike on the town of Vardenis, Armenia, September 29.

Experts say that the clash between Azerbaijan and Armenia last week was more fierce than in July because both countries sent many heavy weapons to the fighting area.

Many countries expressed concern about the armed conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

Nagorno-Karabakh is located in the southwestern territory of Azerbaijan, but the majority of this province’s population are Armenians, who are a minority and always seek to secede from Azerbaijan to merge with Armenia.

The sovereignty dispute broke out into a six-year war between Azerbaijan and Armenia from February 1988 to May 1994.

Since 2008, Azerbaijan and Armenia have held more than 10 high-level meetings to resolve the dispute, but have not found a solution because both consider the disputed territories under their sovereignty and do not accept other methods.
