Some media in Baku reported on Tuesday night that an exchange of fire took place between the military forces of the Republic of Azerbaijan and Armenia in the border areas.

Iran PressAsia: The conflict between the Republic of Azerbaijan and Armenia over the Nagorno-Karabakh region began in 1988 and escalated into a military conflict in 1992, as a result of which the Nagorno-Karabakh region of the Republic of Azerbaijan and seven neighboring cities were occupied by Armenian forces.

In 2020, Armenia and the Republic of Azerbaijan clashed for the second time over the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh. But after 44 days, the war ended with Russian mediation and the signing of three so-called tripartite declarations.

However, Baku and Yerevan still have problems at the border, accusing each other of violating the ceasefire.

The Republic of Azerbaijan announced on Tuesday that its military positions on the border with Armenia were attacked by Armenian forces on Monday night.

The Ministry of Defense of Armenia also stated: "The Armenian Armed Forces periodically targeted the positions of the Republic of Azerbaijan in the direction of the town of Zilik in the Kalbajar region, using light weapons."

According to the ministry, Azerbaijani forces also fired in retaliation, which did not result in any casualties or financial losses.

Thousands of opponents of the ruling Armenian government have been protesting in the Armenian capital, Yerevan, in recent days, warning the government of granting concessions to the Republic of Azerbaijan over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region.

Opposition parties have accused Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan of plotting to hand over all of Nagorno-Karabakh to Azerbaijan.

The demonstrators demanded the resignation of Pashinyan. 219
