Armenia declared martial law and general mobilization after clashes with Azerbaijan in the Nagorno Karabakh region resulted in civilian deaths. The two sides exchanged accusations about initiating the attack, so what do we know about the disputed territory between the two countries?

The Nagorno-Karabakh region is located within the territory of Azerbaijan and is predominantly Armenian, and it is supported by neighboring Armenia.

The word Nagorno in Russian means heights, while Karabakh means black garden in Azeri language.

And ethnic Armenians prefer to use the old Armenian name for the region “Artsakh”.
