Flare-up rages on over Nagorno-Karabakh Regardless of US-hosted peace talks

The flare-up of violence across the area of Nagorno-Karabakh from the Caucuses lasted over the weekend, even though US-brokered talks aimed at stopping the violence.

The USA has been hosting leading diplomats out of Armenia and Azerbaijan in a fresh bid to halt the fighting.

Missiles and artillery shells struck residential areas on Saturday just hours after diplomats in both nations landed in Washington for its discussions.

The significant shelling forced inhabitants of this city called Stepanakert for the Armenians and Khankendi into Azerbaijan into lands as emergency crews rushed to extinguish fires.

There were no immediate details regarding casualties.

People here are utilized to living with battle. 1 young soldier in the area’s Armenian-backed army got married at a church damaged by shelling.

Alongside weddings, funerals will also be happening – a 13-year-old boy that died of wounds by shelling from the Azerbaijani city of Ganja has been laid to rest on Saturday afternoon.

The former Soviet countries of Azerbaijan and Armenia fought a bloody war within the mountainous area of Nagorno-Karabakh from the early 1990s.

Thousands were killed on either side. Thousands and thousands of people were homeless.
