Fighting between Azerbaijan and Armenia entered a fourth day on Wednesday in the biggest eruption of the decades-old conflict since a 1994 ceasefire.
Armenia said three civilians had been killed in Martakert, a town located in the breakaway region of Nagorno-Karabakh, as a result of an Azeri attack, local news agency Armenpress reported.
French President Emmanuel Macron said Turkey’s “warlike” rhetoric was encouraging Azerbaijan to reconquer Nagorno-Karabakh.
Nagorno-Karabakh is a disputed region inside Azerbaijan and controlled by ethnic Armenians.
It broke away from Azerbaijan in a war in the 1990s but is not recognised by any country as an independent republic.
