On October 7, Azerbaijani and Armenian forces exchanged artillery fire in the region of Nagorno-Karabakh, where a heated battle has been ongoing for more than ten days now.  

The Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan accused the Armenian military of shelling the towns of Tartar, Barda, Aghdam, Agjabadi, Fizuli and Jabrayil. No casualties were reported. The towns, which are located on the frontlines, were likely evacuated in the early days of the conflict.

Azerbaijan claims that Armenian fire has so far claimed the lives of 27 civilians and injured at least 141 others. 376 houses and 63 facilities were allegedly destroyed.

While Azerbaijan was accusing Armenia of shelling civilian settlements, its forces were pounding the Armenian-held town of Shushi. Azerbaijani artillery strikes caused significant damage to a number of civilian facilities in the town as seen in few photos shared by the Armenian Unified Infocenter.

At least 21 Armenian civilians have been killed in Azerbaijani shelling on Nagorno-Karabakh since the outbreak of the battle there. More than 90 others were injured.

The battle in Nagorno-Karabakh will likely claim the lives of more civilians on both sides in the upcoming few days. A ceasefire doesn’t appear to be possible now. Azerbaijan and Armenian are still not ready for compromise.
