Nagorno-Karabakh soldiers say they will stay on front lines until they win

A ceasefire in the mountain region of Nagorno-Karabakh was under severe strain on Tuesday after new clashes between Azerbaijan and ethnic Armenian forces in their deadliest fighting since the 1990s.

Footage released by the Defence Ministry of Azerbaijan showed what is said to be artillery bombarding positions of the Armenian Armed Forces as fighting between the two countries over the breakaway region continued.

Officials in Nagorno-Karabakh reported new artillery battles on Tuesday morning and said fighting was particularly intense in southern areas of the conflict zone.

Azerbaijan, which is a close ally of Turkey, says it has made territorial gains. But Armenia, which has a defence pact with Russia, says it has repulsed Azeri attacks and has the situation under control.

“We will win, and this will continue until we reach our point,” Nagorno-Karabakh serviceman Vahrak Vartanyan told Reuters on Tuesday. “This is our home. And we will stay here, anyway.”

Several hundred people have been killed in the fighting, which each side blames on the other, and there are fears of a humanitarian crisis.

    Turkey should recall the terrorists that it has brought in on the side of Azeris and stop fanning the flames of more wars and violence. All sides must ensure no CIVILIANS are targeted and respect ceasefire so no Azeri or Armenian soldiers are killed and wounded.

    Behind the Armenian soldiers are their families and homeland for whom they would gladly die. There is no overpowering that.

    Ağdam (also spelled Agdam or Aghdam) is a ghost town in the southwest part of Azerbaijan and the capital of Agdam District, today controlled by the de facto Republic of Nagorno-Karabakh, but de jure internationally recognized territory of the Republic of Azerbaijan.[1] Founded in the early 19th century, it grew considerably during the Soviet period and had 39,200 inhabitants by 1991.Armenian forces captured Agdam in July 1993 during the Nagorno-Karabakh War.The heavy fighting forced the entire population to flee eastwards. Upon seizing the city, Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (NKR) forces destroyed much of the town to discourage Azerbaijanis from returning. More damage occurred in the following decades when locals looted the abandoned town for building materials. It is currently almost entirely ruined and uninhabited.
    In November 2010 it was renamed by the NKR government to Akna (Armenian: Ակնա).[5][6] It is administratively part of the town of Askeran, which is located some 10 km away.

    This is fate of the city 40000 inhabitants by Armenian!!!

    I think before 2021 Azerbaijan will have the whole region under their control.. as it should be.. if Armenians in Karabakh wanna stay or leave it's up to them to decide they'll be civilians anyways 🙏 sooner Armenians stop occupying this zone the better it's like 1/4th of Azerbaijan.. anyone would fight an internationally recognized occupation force like that it's been 30 years.. dare to give a few inches of Canada to any foreign power see our resolve then 🇨🇦🇨🇦♥️

    Man the geography of the universe is amazing, mountains have helped humans for centuries, looks like the Armenians are outnumbered and outgunned but the mountainous region helped them defend. Imagine living in desert like iraqis were swept in just five days, no place to hide 🤔
