World trapped in Taiwan, Azerbaijan bombed Armenia
War has erupted in two other countries of the world amid ongoing tensions between China and Taiwan and threats of war. Tensions have escalated once again between Azerbaijan and Armenia. Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry claims it has captured several hills in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh. According to Azerbaijan, tensions began when Armenian soldiers killed one of their soldiers in the disputed area. Please tell that Russian peacekeepers are also stationed in this area.
Armenia’s Defense Ministry has confirmed that two soldiers were killed in an attack in Azerbaijan. So far 19 Armenian soldiers have been injured in this battle. Out of which 4 are in critical condition. Russian peacekeeping forces stationed in the region have reported three ceasefire violations by Azerbaijani troops.
Why is there a war between the two countries?
The whole dispute is about the Nagorno-Karabakh region, which now belongs to Azerbaijan, but is currently occupied by the Armenian army. Both countries have been part of the Soviet Union (USSR), but when the USSR began to collapse in the late 1980s, disputes between the two countries escalated. The entire dispute is about the Nagorno-Karabakh region, which straddles the border between Armenia and Azerbaijan. In 1991 also a war broke out between the two countries.
Battle of Captured Hill Area
After three years of conflict, Russia intervened and a ceasefire occurred in 1994. The area currently belongs to Azerbaijan, but has more people than Armenia, so the Armenian army has occupied it. About four thousand sq. km. The whole area is hilly, where there is tension. The current tension started in 2018, when both the armies increased their forces in the area adjacent to the border.
Where are these two countries settled?
Armenia and Azerbaijan are neighboring countries, which are now in Asia. Both have been part of the Soviet Union in the past and are very close to Europe. About four thousand km from India. Armenia and Azerbaijan lie between Iran and Turkey.
