Two Karabakh soldiers killed in Azeri attack

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Azerbaijani armed forces attempted Thursday, July 31, to attack the defense positions of a Nagorno Karabakh military unit located in the northern direction of the contact line, killing two soldiers of the NKR army.

The attack was rebuffed, with the rivals suffering heavy losses. Investigation is under way, the army’s press office reported.

The conflict between Nagorno Karabakh and Azerbaijan

The conflict between Nagorno Karabakh and Azerbaijan broke out as result of the ethnic cleansing launched by the Azeri authorities in the final years of the Soviet Union. The Karabakh War was fought from 1991 (when the Nagorno Karabakh Republic was proclaimed) to 1994 (when a ceasefire was sealed by Armenia, NKR and Azerbaijan). Most of Nagorno Karabakh and a security zone consisting of 7 regions are now under control of NKR defense army. Armenia and Azerbaijan are holding peace talks mediated by the OSCE Minsk Group up till now.
