Disputed Territory, Nagorno-Karabakh
September 28, 2020 at 23:38 GMT -00:00 · Published

Armenian Ministry of Defence published a video on Monday, which according to them shows strikes against Azerbaijani military vehicles in Nagorno-Karabakh amid ongoing clashes between the Caucasus republics over the disputed region. Ruptly was not able to independently verify the footage.

The video was published by Armenian Defence Ministry spokesperson Shushan Stepanyan on her Twitter page.

"The fighting continues with varying intensity. Army units successfully carry out punitive actions in certain areas. The morale of our servicemen is high," Stepanyan said.

The Defence Ministry of the unrecognised republic of Nagorno-Karabakh reported that following the clashes 84 soldiers had been killed, while the Armenian Ministry of Defence reported that 200 soldiers had been wounded, 80 of them transported to Yerevan hospitals.

Meanwhile, the Azerbaijani authorities said that 19 civilians had been wounded in shelling by the Armenian side.

Both Yerevan and Baku accuse each other of the escalation of tensions in the ethnic Armenian-populated area within Azerbaijan.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan expressed support to Azeri authorities blaming Yerevan for the conflict.

Russia and the United States have both called for a ceasefire and an immediate halt to hostilities.

Leaders of France, Austria, Germany, and other European countries also called for a suspension of military operations and for the start of negotiations.
