Armenia accused Turkey On Thursday, flights carrying emergency aid were prevented from flying in its airspace, while renewed conflict in Nagorno-Karabagh threatens to trigger a humanitarian crisis there.

Armenia and Azerbaijan exchanged accusations of violating the ceasefire that was agreed upon less than a week ago, with the aim of enabling the two sides to exchange prisoners and bodies of the dead in the clashes that erupted since the 27th of September.

The Ministry of Defense in the Nagorno Karabakh region said today, Thursday, that it had recorded 49 new deaths among its armed forces. This brings the number of military deaths to 604 since the outbreak of the fighting.
