Azerbaijan: Injured treated in hospital after fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh

Azerbaijan, Bardinskiy district
April 2, 2016 at 14:28 GMT +00:00 · Published

Footage emerged on Saturday showing a local hospital in Bardinskiy district of Azerbaijan, where at least two wounded men were receiving treatment after sustaining injuries in fighting that broke out in Nagorno Karabakh.

The Ministry of Defence of Azerbaijan has already confirmed the death of at least 12 soldiers. It also reported the loss of a Mi-24 helicopter and a tank which also belonged to the military due to the fighting.

The territorial dispute erupted into violence on Friday night, with Armenia and Azerbaijan blaming each other for the resumption of hostilities. The self-proclaimed Nagorno-Karabakh Defence Ministry released a statement earlier on Saturday, saying that escalation of the conflict had been noted in the southern, south-eastern and north-eastern areas of the territory. Both sides reportedly used tanks, artillery and aircraft.

The conflict over the area dates back to 1988, when the Nagorno-Karabakh region, a predominantly Armenian mountainous region that was part of Azerbaijan, broke away from the Azerbaijan Soviet Socialist Republic. It declared independence in 1991, triggering a full-scale war which ended only after Russia brokered a ceasefire between the two countries in 1994. Clashes still break out periodically in the region.
