Azerbaijan had earlier indicated it was only targeting military objects in the area.Military hostilities previously broke out in the region in 1992 and in 2020; however, until recently both Armenia and Azerbaijan were on the verge of of cementing a peace agreement by the end of the year after Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan declared Yerevan was ready to recognize Azerbaijan’s sovereignty within its Soviet-era borders, including Karabakh. Azerbaijani leader Ilham Aliyev later indicated that both nations could sign a peace deal in the later half of the year so long as Yerevan did not change its stance.
