On 4 October, the city of Stepanakert, the capital of the unrecognized self-proclaimed Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, got hit by an artillery strike, with an Armenian MoD representative warning of civilian casualties inflicted during the attack.
With the current clashes in the Nagorno-Karabakh region continuing for a week now, the defense ministries of both Armenia and Azerbaijan have presented new videos from the conflict zone.
The two vids were posted on YouTube on 4 October, both lauding the exploits of their troops in the manner of previous such releases.
The footage published online by the Armenian side allegedly depicts a group of Azerbaijani troops coming under fire and fleeing in the vicinity of Madagiz.
On 3 October, the Azerbaijani side announced that it had successfully captured the village of Madagiz, though forces of the self-proclaimed Nagorno-Karabakh Republic disputed that claim.
The video shared by the Azerbaijani side allegedly shows Azerbaijani soldiers raising their country’s flag over a captured Armenian position.
