“The two sides blamed each other for triggering the new round of clashes, which broke out in the middle of their border” Xinhua said.

The territorial conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan has been going on for decades. The last time large-scale armed clashes resumed was in September 2020, but the ceasefire signed in November of that year put an end to them.
