Assistant of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Hekmat Hajiyev wrote on his Twitter page on Monday night that the two cities of Ganja and Mingecevir had been targeted by missiles.

Iran Press/ Asia: The assistant of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, stated that 20 residential houses in Ganja were destroyed in the missile attack.

Meanwhile, reportedly, medical sources in the Republic of Azerbaijan stated that two people were killed and four others were wounded in an Armenian missile attack on the city of Ganja.

After several days of military clashes in July (mid-July) between the forces of the Republic of Azerbaijan and Armenia, which resulted in casualties on both sides, the war of words and some diplomatic moves provoked tensions in the Caucasus region and hence the military confrontation between the two countries seemed predictable.

The two countries have been at loggerheads over ownership of the Nagorno-Karabakh region for decades.

In 1994, following four years of military conflict between the two countries, some European and regional governments intervened to end the territorial dispute between Baku and Yerevan, and finally, with the mediation of the OSCE Minsk Group, a ceasefire was established between the parties to the conflict. However, the international efforts to resolve the conflict peacefully have so far been unsuccessful.
