    It has been one month since fighting broke out between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the breakaway region of Nagorno-Karabakh. A third humanitarian ceasefire came into effect on Monday, but it is already in jeopardy. Nagorno-Karabakh is internationally recognised as Azerbaijani territory but is run by ethnic Armenians who either want to secede and form their own country or join Armenia. The military conflict is taking an increasingly high toll on communities from both sides. Al Jazeera’s Hoda Abdel Hamid reports from Mingecevir, Azerbaijan. –
