Due to the unstable situation in Nagorno-Karabakh, Air Astana said its flights to Turkey, Europe and Israel are circumventing this territory, the Kazakh air carrier said.

The airline assured that it closely monitors the situation and is taking all flight safety measures.

The Azerbaijani defense ministry said in a statement Tuesday it launched “local anti-terrorist activities” to “suppress large-scale provocations in the Karabakh economic region,” and “to disarm and secure the withdrawal of formations of Armenia’s armed forces from our territories.”

At the moment, the intensity of fire on the line of contact has significantly decreased, the Nagorno-Karabakh Defense Army reported. 

Earlier, the Karabakh side appealed to the Azerbaijani side to immediately stop hostilities and sit down at the negotiating table to settle the situation, ARKA news agency reports.
