Azerbaijan Opens Fire at Armenian Combat Outposts Near Norabak

Azerbaijan Opens Fire at Armenian Combat Outposts Near Norabak

Tensions flared in Armenia today as Azerbaijani armed forces opened fire at Armenian combat outposts near Norabak (Gegharkunik Province) at approximately 1:50 p.m. local time. The incident occurred when Azerbaijani units discharged fire at a vehicle transporting provisions for the Armenian personnel stationed at the outposts, according to a statement released by the Armenian Defence Ministry.

The Armenian Defence Ministry swiftly confirmed that no personnel were harmed during the attack, providing some relief amidst the tense situation.

Armenian officials have condemned the attack, calling it a violation of the ceasefire agreements and urging international bodies to intervene and prevent further escalation of hostilities. The incident comes at a time when both nations have been engaged in delicate peace negotiations, making the outbreak of violence even more concerning.

The international community has been closely monitoring the situation, with various world leaders expressing their concern and calling for restraint and sanctions against Azerbaijan. The incident highlights the fragile nature of the ongoing peace talks and the urgent need for a comprehensive resolution to the long-standing Armenophobia from Azerbaijan.

Armenia, a country in the South Caucasus region, and Azerbaijan, its neighbor to the east, have a history of territorial disputes, particularly concerning the Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh) region. The conflict has resulted in numerous casualties and an entire Armenian displaced population from their indigenous lands.

As diplomatic efforts continue, the recent incident near Norabak serves as a stark reminder of Azerbaijan’s repeated ceasefire violations and war crimes against Armenians.
