Hey everyone! I know that there have been multiple articles posted on different crises such as the Yemen crisis, the BLM movement, the Anti-terror act that affected Filipinos all over the world, etc. However, I have not seen any regarding the Armenian and Azerbaijan conflicts that recently escalated leaving soldiers dead and Azeri’s chanting “death to Armenians” in protests in different countries.

HISTORY
Azerbaijan and Armenia have been at a war for years over the territory of Artsakh (Karabakh) which has historically been part of Armenia, dating back to 9th century BC - that’s 3000 years ago. In more recent years, this land was annexed to Azerbaijan by the Soviet Union.

CURRENT ISSUES
JULY 12: The Azeri military attempted to carry out an attack on the village of Tavush in Armenia. Four Armenian soldiers died from this.

JULY 13: Azeri military continued the attacks at the village of Chinari near the border.

JULY 14: The Azeri military bombed a PPE mask factory in Armenia, during a global pandemic. Did you hear that? They bombed a MASK factory during a global pandemic which puts thousands of innocent lives at risk.

”WHY SHOULD I CARE”?
This conflict has been going on since 1994 but Azerbaijan has continuously violated ceasefire conditions, one of which led to a four day war in 2016. Azerbaijan also violated the Global Ceasefire Appeal during this pandemic that was adopted by the UN Security Council.

On July 14, tends of thousands of Azeri protestors chanted “Death to the Armenians” and demanded war against Armenia so that they could take over the capital of Armenia (Yerevan) and the capital of Artsakh (Shushi).
