Armenia and Azerbaijan: Conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh
Conflict over the area between Azerbaijan and Armenia and ethnic Armenian forces based in Nagorno-Karabakh has been ongoing for decades. For more than six weeks, fighting and displacement took place in Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding areas, resulting in the deaths of more than 140 civilians and thousands of combatants, widespread destruction to civilian infrastructure, and disruption to services. Shelling, rocket fire, and unmanned aerial vehicle attacks have targeted densely populated cities and essential civilian infrastructure such as homes, schools, and hospitals in Nagorno Karabakh and occupied Azeri territories, as well as in neighbouring Armenia and Azerbaijan.
