    Azerbaijani and Armenian forces exchange missile strikes, as reignited hostilities over the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh entered their third day. Both sides released footage from the conflict, which persisted overnight and into the morning. The Azerbaijani defense ministry claimed that Armenian forces had carried out large-caliber artillery shelling on the town of Tartar. At the same time, Armenia’s defense ministry denounced Azerbaijan for attacking an Armenian military base and hitting a civilian bus during a drone strike, promising a ‘harsh response.’ The long-time foes have used an array of heavy artillery, tanks, rocket launchers, and drones against each other in recent days. In the past two days, tallies of both military and civilian casualties have reached double figures. MORE:
