Azerbaijan and Armenia's low intensity conflict has been heating up again. The Azerbaijani Ministry of Defence has released footage of a retaliatory strike after the deaths of 3 soldiers.
Azerbaijan and Armenia fought a war in the early 90s which led to the loss of the Nagorno-Karabakh region for the Azerbaijani side. This was after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Today the two nations are miles apart. Azerbaijan's larger economy has allowed it to build a military which is more than a match for Armed Forces of Armenia. Despite this gap, it has been reluctant to start a full scale war. However as the advantage expands, peace in the region is looking less and less likely.
