Armenia’s prime minister recently addressed the conflict with Azerbaijan by saying the scale of the attacks is unprecedented. On Saturday, Nikol Pashinyan warned the Azerbaijani army was being helped by around 150 Turkish special forces members and Syrian terrorists.
Tensions between the two countries led to clashes last week amid a territorial dispute over the Nagorno-Karabakh region.
The prime minister has alleged the Azerbaijan led forces are trying to destroy the Armenian people.
“Azerbaijani-Turkish bandits are not only pursuing military or military-political issues, they have not come only to occupy territories, villages or cities,” stated Pashinyan. “Their goal is to continue their policy of Armenian genocide.”
The leader encouraged residents to remain hopeful and claimed Armenia will come out on top.
In the meantime, countries and organizations around the world are calling for a ceasefire between the two countries.
