Armenia Turns To Russia For Help As Tensions With Azerbaijan Boil Over

Andrew H. Sweet

On November 16, Azerbaijan's Defense Ministry said its forces prevented "large-scale provocations" by the Armenian forces in Kalbacar and Lachin districts bordering Armenia. According to the ministry, two of its soldiers were injured when Armenian military units used mortars and artillery against the Azerbaijani position at the border.

In turn, Armenia's Defense Ministry accused Azerbaijani soldiers of shooting at its positions along the border, using artillery, armored vehicles, and guns.

The ministry also said that two Armenian "combat positions" had been lost and an unspecified number of soldiers killed. It also claimed that Azerbaijani forces lost a "significant number of armored vehicles and troops."
