Fighting erupted in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh on September 27, with at least 23 people reported killed in the most serious escalation of the 30-year conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan. 

According to emergingeurope.ro, Armenia’s defence ministry said an attack on civilian settlements in Nagorno-Karabakh, including the regional capital Stepanakert, began on Sunday morning. The separatist authorities in the enclave said 18 people were killed —16 troops, a woman, and a child — and 100 were wounded.

Azerbaijan has said five people – all members of the same family – were killed by Armenian shelling.

In response to the escalation of fighting, the Armenian government has declared martial law and total military mobilisation. A similar announcement also came from the authorities in Nagorno-Karabakh. Fighting continued on Monday, with reports of 15 more soldiers killed and both sides accusing each other of using heavy artillery.
