Plans for US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to meet the foreign ministers of Azerbaijan and Armenia this week have raised hopes of an end to the fighting.
More than two weeks of fighting between the Caucasus rivals has left almost 600 dead, including 73 civilians, according to a tally based on partial tolls from both sides.
Turkey, a longtime ally of Azerbaijan, has accused Armenia of committing war crimes after reports it has been targeting civilian territories in the fight over occupied Karabakh.
Azerbaijan says at least four cities outside the occupied Karabakh conflict zone are being attacked by Armenian forces.
The Armenian-run Nubar Ozanyan Brigade was formed under the leadership of the YPG, the Syrian wing of the terrorist PKK. Some sources suggest its members are moving to the occupied Karabakh to fight Azerbaijanis.
Years of tension and sporadic violence in the Nagorno-Karabakh region between Azerbaijan and Armenia has displaced tens of thousands of people. Many hope to go home one day.
