Western Armenia – At the end of September 2020, the conflict between Azerbaijan, Armenia and Artsakh, which has been going on for more than 30 years, started again. There are reports on battles and the military situation, losses of people and other related events in the updated chronicle of the “Caucasian Knot”. In addition to the almost daily bombing, the history of the Karabakh (Artsakh) conflict was marked by the 1991-1994 war, the military confrontation in April 2016 and the escalation in July 2020. The current military actions differ from the previous intensification of the conflict in that clashes in the Artsakh conflict zone occur along the entire perimeter of the front, and it looks like the first war.
According to Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, about 3,773 Armenian servicemen were killed. The Ministry of Defense of Artsakh has published lists with the names of 2,808 dead servicemen. The number of civilians killed, according to the Artsakh authorities, was 50, 163 were wounded, and almost 10,000 became disabled. The Azerbaijani authorities reported the death of 2,906 servicemen, 8 more were missing.
According to the Prosecutor General’s Office of Azerbaijan, as of November 30, at least 93 civilians were killed, 5 people were killed, and 414 were injured as a result of shelling and mine explosions.
