Azerbaijan’s army leads in war
Azerbaijan’s military has inflicted heavy losses on Armenia on the basis of Turkish and Israeli weapons. According to the information, the city of Shushi, located near Stepanacart, the capital of Nagorno-Karabakh, has been captured by the Azerbaijani army.

What is the history of this struggle
Armenia and Azerbaijan were liberated between 1918 and 1921. Even at the time of independence, the two countries did not have any special friendship due to the border dispute. After the end of the First World War, a third of these two countries separated the Transcaucasian Federation. Which is now known as Georgia. These three countries joined the Soviet Union in 1922. During this time, the great Russian leader Joseph Stalin gave a part of Azerbaijan (Nagorno-Karabakh) to Armenia. This part was traditionally under the occupation of Azerbaijan but the people living here were of Armenian descent.
