Nagorno-Karabakh has been disputed between Armenia and Azerbaijan for decades. The Caucasus region had unilaterally declared its independence during the collapse of the Soviet Union. This was followed by a war with 30,000 dead in the 1990s. The self-proclaimed Nagorno-Karabakh Republic is still not recognized internationally and is considered part of Azerbaijan under international law. Most of it is inhabited by Armenians.

After a long period of relative calm, the conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh and adjacent areas flared up again at the end of September. Since then, there has been fierce fighting every day, in which dozens of civilians have died. According to Armenian sources, almost 500 people have been killed so far, including around 60 civilians. Azerbaijan does not comment on the number of soldiers killed on its side.
