This comes at a time when the areas south of Karabakh, on the border with Iran, are witnessing fierce fighting between the Azerbaijani and Armenian forces, which repeatedly leads to the fall of missiles from both sides into Iranian territory.
Earlier, the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs repeatedly warned the two parties to the Karabakh conflict against launching any aggression on Iranian territory, stressing “the need to respect the territorial integrity of the Republic of Azerbaijan, and the principle of non-aggression against civilians.”
