Nagorno-Karabakh Threatens to Use Warplanes in Conflict With Azerbaijan

Karabakh official says four military personnel killed in new clashes with Azeri forces.

Remains of a downed Azerbaijani forces helicopter lies in a field in the separatist Nagorno-Karabakh region, on Saturday, April 2, 2016.

Four military personnel from the Armenian-backed breakaway Nagorno-Karabakh region were killed on Monday in fresh clashes with Azerbaijan forces, the Karabakh representative in France said.

"Four more military victims were announced today on the Karabakh side," Hovhannes Guevorkian told Reuters on Monday.

He said Azerbaijan was continuing to bomb towns in Nagorno and that the region would use fixed-wing combat aircraft if there was a new large-scale attack by Azerbaijan.
