Azerbaijan said, on Sunday, that Armenian forces bombed Ganja, its second largest city, in a new major escalation in the conflict in the South Caucasus region, hours after the Azerbaijani forces bombed the capital and major cities of the Nagorno Karabakh region.

Armenia denied firing at Azerbaijan, but the leader of the allied region confirmed that his forces had destroyed a military air base in Ganja, according to “Reuters”.”Military units located in major cities in Azerbaijan have become targets of the IDF from now on,” said Aryk Harutyunyan, leader of the Nagorno-Karabakh region.

The Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan stated that the two cities of Trter and Horadze, located near the de facto border with Nagorny Karabakh, were also subjected to heavy bombardment.

The strikes were followed by explosions that occurred in the city of Stepanakert, the largest city in the region, according to “AFP.”Sirens sounded in the city before the explosions ensued. The Russian Interfax news agency quoted the local foreign ministry in the republic, which unilaterally declared that this was “shelling.”

The military said the provincial capital, Khankendi, was also bombed. The battles began about a week ago and escalated to the worst level since the 1990s, which saw about 30,000 deaths in the conflict.

The conflict may draw regional powers such as Russia and Turkey into it and threaten to disrupt energy supplies through the South Caucasus as oil and gas pipelines transport from Azerbaijan to world markets.
