People participate in mobilisation in Armenia

The conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan is coming to a head again after fighting in the Nagorno-Karabakh region.

People in Armenia are preparing to join the struggle after the Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan declared martial law and a total mobilisation earlier today as clashes erupted between Armenian and Azerbaijani forces on Sunday in the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region.

Masses are intensely applying to the mobilisation desk set up by the DASNAK party at the Hiraparak Square in Yerevan.

The volunteers at the scene spoke to ANF and said: “This conflict was started by the Azerbaijani state. We as the people are ready to take part in this war and resist. This will be an end for Azerbaijan and we will win.”

DASNAK party official Sargisyan, from the organisers of mobilisation, said: “This war was planned and started by the Turkish state which is the common enemy of Armenian and Kurdish peoples. We will fight them and I trust that we will triumph.”

Mobilisation and martial law was officially declared during a special session at the Armenian Assembly at 16:30 local time today afternoon.
