Armenian, Azerbaijan forces in deadly clashes as Putin urges ceasefire

Armenian and Karabakh armed forces hold joint military exercises near the town of Tigranakert in November 2014Fierce clashes left at least 30 Azerbaijani and Armenian soldiers dead Saturday as Russia and the West urged an immediate ceasefire after a major escalation in violence over the disputed Nagorny Karabakh region. Armenian President Serzh Sarkisian said 18 Armenian troops were killed and some 35 wounded in the “largest-scale hostilities” since a 1994 truce ended a war that saw Armenian-backed fighters seize the territory from Azerbaijan. Sarkisian did not specify if the troops were from the forces of unrecognised Karabakh — which claims independence but is backed by Yerevan — or Armenia’s army.
