Some wearing masks bearing the colors of the flag of the Republic of Artsakh — also known as Nagorno-Karabakh — more than a dozen state, federal and Los Angeles city officials gathered on the steps of City Hall on Monday, Oct. 5 to call for action in the conflict between Azerbaijan and its neighbors, Armenia and Artsakh.

Los Angeles City Council President Nury Martinez, Assemblyman Adrin Nazarian, Councilman Paul Krekorian, Congressman Adam Schiff and other elected leaders urged the U.S. to take action to halt what they declared aggression by Azerbaijan and to condemn Turkish President Erdogan’s involvement.

In the decades-old conflict’s latest turn, Armenia accused Azerbaijan of firing missiles into the capital of the separatist territory of Nagorno-Karabakh on Monday, while Azerbaijan said several of its towns and its second-largest city were attacked.

Iran, which borders both countries, said it was working on a peace plan for the violence, which reignited last month and has killed scores of people on both sides.

Nagorno-Karabakh lies inside Azerbaijan but has been under the control of ethnic Armenian forces backed by Armenia since the end of a separatist war in 1994.

Armenian military officials reported missile strikes in the territorial capital of Stepanakert, which came under intense attacks all weekend. Residents told the Russian state RIA Novosti news agency that parts of the city were suffering shortages of electricity and gas after the strikes.

The Azerbaijani Defense Ministry, in turn, accused Armenian forces of shelling the towns of Tartar, Barda and Beylagan.

The latest fighting erupted Sept. 27 and has killed dozens, marking the biggest escalation in the conflict. Both sides have accused each other of expanding the hostilities beyond Nagorno-Karabakh.

According to Nagorno-Karabakh officials, about 220 servicemen on their side have died in the clashes since then. The state-run Armenian Unified Infocenter said that 21 civilians have been killed in the region and 82 others wounded.

Azerbaijani authorities haven’t given details about military casualties, but said 25 civilians were killed and 127 wounded.

Both sides have repeatedly accused each other of targeting civilians and have reported damage to nonmilitary infrastructure.
