Azerbaijan, Armenia forces clash as Putin urges ceasefire

Armenian and Karabakh armed forces hold joint military exercises near the town of Tigranakert in November 2014Azerbaijan said Saturday at least 12 of its soldiers were killed and a helicopter downed by Armenian forces, in a major escalation of violence over the Nagorny Karabakh region, prompting Russia and the West to urge an immediate ceasefire. The surge in fighting over the disputed territory — which separatist Armenian-backed forces captured from Azerbaijan in the early 1990s — reportedly also claimed the lives of one Armenian and one Azeri civilian after the arch foes accused each other of unleashing heavy weaponry across the volatile front line. Armenia accused Azerbaijan of launching a “massive attack along the Karabakh frontline using tanks, artillery, and helicopters” on Friday night.
