The war between Ukraine and Russia is still going on that in the meantime there has also been a threat of a fierce war between Armenia and Azerbaijan. Soldiers of both countries clashed on the border on Tuesday, in which around 100 soldiers from both sides have been killed. Armenia says 49 of its soldiers have been killed in the bloody clash, while Azerbaijan has also admitted 50 soldiers were killed. The conflict broke out when the Azerbaijani army launched drone attacks targeting Armenian territory and started firing. Armenia’s defense ministry said the firing was not intense, but that Azerbaijani troops were advancing into their territory from behind.
In such a situation, in response to their action, Armenian soldiers also started firing. At the same time, Azerbaijan has alleged that the provocation was done by Armenia. Armenian troops launched attacks on Monday night and again on Tuesday morning. Azerbaijan said that Armenian troops had planted mines and also attacked Azerbaijan border posts. Nagorno-Karabakh has been a conflict between the two countries for several decades. Azerbaijan also claims the area, but it has been under Armenian occupation since the 1994 separatist war.
