Azerbaijani servicemen killed as a result of night battles in Nagorno-Karabakh.

Fighting between Armenian and Azerbaijani forces over a disputed region entered second day on Monday, with reports of 15 more soldiers killed and both sides accusing each other of using heavy artillery.

Hundreds more are said to have been wounded in the fiercest clashes since 2016 in the South Caucasus, a region that provides crucial transit routes for gas and oil to the international market.

Tensions between the countries have been growing for months over the Nagorno-Karabakh region, an enclave legally considered to be part of Azerbaijan but which has been run by ethnic Armenians since it declared independence in 1991.
