Azerbaijani And Armenian Forces Clash In A Disputed Region
Azerbaijani and Armenian forces fought, breaking a decades-old cease-fire agreement. It's unclear who started this recent surge of violence.By Melissa Prax | April 2, 2016
Several people are dead after fighting broke out between Azerbaijan and Armenia, and neither side is willing to claim responsibility.
The two countries have a violent history, but this recent spike in violence violates a cease-fire that was agreed upon in 1994.
The forces are clashing in Nagorno-Karabakh — a disputed region technically in Azerbaijan but controlled by Armenia. That control includes funding of Karabakh forces.
