On Wednesday August 3, 2022 the Azerbaijani armed forces, violating the tripartite agreements of November 9, 2020, is carrying out military aggression in the area of responsibility of Russian peacekeeping troops.
Azerbaijani forces use Bayraktars TB2 combat drones to strike permanent positions of the Artsakh Defense Army at points on the line of contact, bringing this new escalation to a level unprecedented since the establishment of the ceasefire -fire of November 2020.
The toll of this new aggression is two dead and nineteen injured on the Armenian side and two dead on the Azerbaijani side.
“In doing so, the Baku regime is trying to impose the closure of the Lachin corridor, the only humanitarian corridor towards Stepanakert, the Artsakhiote capital which provides the link between the Republics of Armenia and Artsakh. The Azerbaijani authorities thus pose more than ever the threat of an imminent ethnic cleansing of the Artsakhiote population”.
