Today, Armenia and Azerbaijan exchanged accusations of firing at civilian areas far from the disputed conflict zone in the Nagorno Karabakh region, as the worst wave of fighting between the two countries since the 1990s entered its third day in a row and with the high death toll among civilians.

It is reported that the fighting since last Sunday has claimed the lives of nearly 100 people, including civilians, and left hundreds of injuries.

Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said that 10 civilians had been killed in Armenian bombing since Sunday. There was no official information on casualties among Azerbaijani soldiers.

For its part, the Armenian Ministry of Defense said that an Armenian civilian bus in Vardinis, an Armenian town on the border with Azerbaijan and far from Nagorno Karabakh, caught fire after it was hit by an Azerbaijani drone fire. The ministry added that no one was apparently injured in the accident, but it was investigating the matter.
