Nagorno-Karabakh conflict: Stepankert shelled as fighting between Armenia, Azerbaijan escalates

Nagorno-Karabakh Public TV company ArtsakhTV released on Sunday footage of what is said to be the aftermath of heavy shelling going on in Stepankert, the capital of the breakaway region as fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan that began a week ago and has surged to its worst level since the 1990s.

Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev demanded on Sunday that Armenia set a timetable for withdrawing from the enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh and surrounding Azeri territories, and said Azerbaijan would not cease military action until that happened.

Eighteen Nagorno-Karabakh civilians were killed by fire from Azeri forces and more than 90 were wounded in the past week, RIA Novosti news agency cited an official in the disputed region as saying on Sunday.

Azerbaijan said on Sunday that Armenian forces had fired rockets at its second city of Ganja, killing one civilian and wounding four, and threatened to retaliate by destroying military targets inside Armenia.

Until now, the main fighting has been between Azerbaijan and Nagorno-Karabakh, an ethnic Armenian enclave inside Azerbaijan, but it now threatens to spill over into a direct war with Armenia itself.

    What negotiations !!! 20% of our territory was usurped, Khojaly and Garadaghli massacres were committed !!! In the 21st century, our people were killed with unimaginable torture and atrocities just because they are Turks !!! No action has been taken during these 30 years !!! And the most interesting thing is that; An influential European state (world power) with such an influence as France completely took off its mask at such a moment !!! What did "Macaroni" say not only about Azerbaijan, but also about Islam !!! All this allows us to thank the spirit of Otto von Bismarck !!! "The difficult issues of the time must be resolved with iron and blood, not with rhetorical parliamentary speeches and a majority vote !!!" Forward to Zangilan, Gubadli and Lachin !!! No mercy should be shown against the sick (fanatical) Dashnaks if they do not surrender !!!

    sitting in front of computers and telling "go Azierbaijan and start the war"…is it difficult to realize that people are dying on both sides, and as an attacking side more Azierbaijani soldiers are dying?

    Listen people. We are trying to take our occupied lands back which armenians has taken from us in 1992 by making genocide. We are not trying to kill any children, women, elderly like they did before. Search for Khojaly genocide and you will see how they have killed innocent people with no mercy. Karabakh belongs to Azerbaijan and armenians should leave our lands now if they don’t want to get hurt. But instead they prefer to chain their soldiers to war zone. Do you think they would have mercy to others while they have none for their own soldiers?
