The 2020 Nagorno-Karabakh war was a war between the Azerbaijani and Armenian armed forces in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh. This is the most recent event during the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

The clashes began on the morning of 27 September 2020 along the Nagorno-Karabakh Line of Contact. Both sides reported military and civilian casualties.[1] In response to the clashes, Armenia and the Republic of Artsakh placed curfews, martial law and total mobilization,[2] while Azerbaijan introduced martial law and a curfew.[3][4]

On 28 September partial mobilization was declared in Azerbaijan.[5]

On 10 October, both Armenia and Azerbaijan agreed to a ceasefire, the stopping of any military action, for a short time.[6]

On 9 November, with the help of Russian President Vladimir Putin, both Armenia and Azerbaijan signed a peace treaty in Moscow, ending the war the next day.[7]
