Azerbaijan launches military operation in Nagorno-Karabakh I DW News

Armenia is accusing Azerbaijan of ethnic cleansing, after it launched a military operation in the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, which is partly controlled by Armenian-backed forces.

Azerbaijan says it’s carrying out an anti-terrorist measures in the region. Nagorno-Karabakh is internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan, but almost all its inhabitants are ethnic Armenians. Azerbaijan took control of parts of the region after a war against Armenia in 2020. It has since blocked the Lachin corridor – which is its only link with Armenia. Azerbaijan’s foreign ministry said peace could only be secured if Armenia gives up control of the region.
