Azerbaijan launched military action and “anti-terrorist” operations in Nagorno-Karabakh, a region of Asia housing roughly 120,000 Armenians, according to a statement from the country’s defense ministry on Tuesday.
Azerbaijan’s defense ministry said it was only targeting “legitimate military” positions in the Nagorno-Karabakh area, but Armenian officials from inside the region said that the capital and surrounding villages were “under intense shelling,” according to The Associated Press. Azerbaijan has been accused of committing an ongoing “genocide” by imposing a blockade around the Nagorno-Karabakh territory and preventing vital resources from being imported, starving Armenians inside the territory.
