Under the terms of the agreement that ended the 2020 Nagorno-Karabakh War, most of the district came under Azerbaijani control. However, disputes over the border line continue.

Military provocations are reported by Armenia and Azerbaijan on a regular basis.

On May 31, the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan claimed the interception of an UAV of the Armenian Armed Forces in the same Kalbajar border region. The drone interception took place days after 6 Armenian soldiers were taken prisoner by Azerbaijani troops in Kalbajar province.

Prior to this, Azerbaijani forces crossed the border in Syunik province, claiming that the Sev Lake that was divided between Armenia and Azerbaijan belongs to their country.

The tensions have recently grown in Nagorno-Karabakh border regions with casualties reported both as a result of accidents and military provocations.

I do want to see some dead fuking Zion dogs tbh but it is very unlikely for them to fight. They might send some rockets at each others but that would be it…remember last time Azer invaded Armenia when Trump was getting cucked…Biden is also a bitch but this time the US would join in and take a side.
