Clashes between two countries kill almost 100 in Nagorno-Karabakh region. Russia steps in for ceasefire but it’s not being implemented.
At least 49 Armenian soldiers killed said PM Nikol Pashinyan in a statement. Few hours later Azeri defense ministry announced 50 troops killed in gunfire exchange with Armenian army in disputed territory. United Nations Security Council agreed to hold an emergency meeting today to discuss Azeri-Armenian clashes.
Background: New war erupted on 27 Sep 2020 in Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding territories, which saw Azerbaijan and Armenia forces report military and civilian casualties. The war ended on Nov 10 2020, when a trilateral ceasefire agreement was signed between Azerbaijan, Armenia and Russia, which forced Armenia to return all the remaining occupied territories surrounding Nagorno-Karabakh. Azerbaijan captured moderate amount of areas during the war, regaining most of the occupied territories surrounding Nagorno-Karabakh and large parts of Nagorno-Karabakh, including the culturally significant city of Shusha in north.
