On 27 September, heavy fighting broke out between Azeri and Armenian forces in and around the contested region of Nagorno-Karabakh. The region is recognised as part of Azerbaijan but is de-facto controlled by an ethnic Armenian administration.?

On 9 November, Armenia and Azerbaijan signed a Russian-brokered ceasefire. Under its provisions, Armenia will return Aghdam, Kelbajar, and Lachin districts, along with parts of Gazakh district, to Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan will maintain control over territory gained in Nagorno-Karabakh during the latest conflict. Russian peacekeepers will be deployed in the remaining areas of Nagorno-Karabakh and along the Lachin corridor that connects Stepanakert to Armenia. The deal also calls for the return of IDPs and refugees to Nagorno-Karabakh, without providing any further details. ?

Cities in Azerbaijan have been hit by shelling, causing casualties and damaging civilian infrastructure. 21 people were killed on 28 October when Barda was hit by rockets.?

According to the Government of Azerbaijan, 40,000 people in the country have been displaced by the conflict. Detailed information on the needs and location of displaced populations within Azerbaijan is not available.
