The region has been engulfed in armed clashes since the end of September, when hostilities between Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh on the one side and Azerbaijan on the other erupted into a major conflict. Both Baku and Yerevan accused each other of aggression in Karabakh and announced mobilisations.

On Thursday, Armenia’s military published a new video allegedly showing the destruction of Azerbaijani military equipment in Nagorno-Karabakh. The footage shows a large cloud of smoke rising from a vehicle engulfed in flames. Later, the clip proceeds to show the moment of the strike, revealing the passing vehicle being hit.

Nagorno-Karabakh, or Artsakh, an Armenian-majority autonomy, proclaimed independence from what was then Soviet Azerbaijan in 1991, leading to a major military conflict between Baku and Yerevan. However, in 1994 the sides agreed to start a peace process mediated by the OSCE Minsk Group. The conflict has since remained frozen, with Nagorno-Karabakh remaining an unrecognised state.
