In the first hours of September 13, clashes broke out once again on the border of Azerbaijan and Armenia, two former Soviet republics in the South Caucasus, which had entered the war twice over Nagorno-Karabakh.

Both Baku and Yerevan governments accused each other of starting the conflict. Armenia 49; Azerbaijan announced the death of 50 soldiers.

Although this latest conflict seemed to have stopped on Tuesday morning when Russia announced that the parties had reached a ceasefire mediated by itself, in the following hours Baku accused Yerevan of violating the ceasefire on the border with artillery fire.

The Armenian Ministry of Defense announced that after the ceasefire, the fighting has subsided, but the situation on the border is still “extremely tense”.
