Azerbaijan Armed Forces Fire at Yeraskh Metallurgical Plant

Yeraskh Metallurgical Plant

On June 16, at 10 a.m., Azerbaijan's Armed Forces opened fire on the under-construction Yeraskh metallurgical plant in Armenia. The plant, built with foreign investment, became the target of the attack, raising concerns about regional security.

Armenia's Defense Ministry condemned the aggressive act and urged for restraint to prevent further escalation. The incident comes amidst Azerbaijan’s continued ceasefire violations and illegal blockade of Artsakh.

The attack poses risks to workers and regional stability. The international community calls for peaceful resolution and diplomatic dialogue to de-escalate tensions and respect established borders and agreements.

The situation remains fluid, and diplomatic efforts are crucial to prevent further escalation in the South Caucasus region.
