Briefing: Azerbaijan attack on the Line of Contact with Nagorno-Karabakh

Azerbaijan claims that these attacks were in a response to a ceasefire violation from Armenia but has yet to make a convincing supporting case for this version of events.

Claims of ceasefire violations from both sides are a common occurrence yet they have not previously resulted in largescale mobilisations of this kind.
