The Armenian Foreign Ministry reported that a civilian was killed after civilian forces shelled civilian-military infrastructure in a town on the border and Dinis located a few kilometers from the fighting centers of recent days. .

With the escalation in the fighting, there is growing concern that the conflict will intensify. The UN Security Council will hold an emergency meeting behind closed doors tonight. Belgium has submitted a formal request to hold the meeting after France and Germany demanded that the issue be put on the agenda.

Over the past week, the armies of Armenia and Azerbaijan have clashed in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone. The two sides blame each other for the resumption of the attacks during which dozens were killed and injured. Last Sunday, deadly fighting broke out in an area located inside Azerbaijan, but has been under the control of ethnic Armenian forces supported by the Yerevan government since 1994.

The conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan has remained unresolved for more than three decades since the end of the violent war in the Caucasus Mountains over the ethnic enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh. Since 1994, the region has been under the control of the Armenian army, but clashes sometimes break out between the countries, threatening the stability of the region where oil and gas pipelines pass through many markets around the world.
