Armenia-Azerbaijan clash sparks fears of another war

The leader of Armenia said on Tuesday that at least 49 of the nation’s servicemen had died overnight in clashes with the Azerbaijani Army. It was the worst escalation of hostilities between two countries since the 2020 war over Nagorno-Karabakh, a disputed mountain enclave, and a threat to both a loyal Russian ally and a ceasefire that Russia brokered.
The clashes — which erupted early Tuesday, — resumed the decades-long armed conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh, which is internationally recognised as part of Azerbaijan but claims independence and is closely allied with Armenia. The escalation between the two former Soviet states in the South Caucasus has heightened fears that Russia could find itself entangled in a second war in addition to its invasion of Ukraine. Some military analysts suggested that Azerbaijan may have been emboldened by Russia’s recent setbacks in northeastern Ukraine.
