Armenia and Azerbaijan Declare Martial Law as Fighting Kills at Least 23 People

HeadlineSep 28, 2020

Armenia and Azerbaijan have declared martial law and mobilized their militaries, after heavy fighting broke out Sunday between the two nations in a disputed territory in the Caucasus Mountains. There are reports of at least 23 dead and over 100 wounded, including civilians, as both sides traded tank, artillery and drone fire in a region that’s internationally recognized as Azerbaijani territory but whose population is mostly ethnic Armenians. It’s the worst fighting in the area since a five-day war in 2016 left over 100 people dead.
