In light of escalation with Azerbaijan ... Armenia announces general mobilization

Today, Armenia declared martial law in the country and general mobilization against the backdrop of the military escalation with Azerbaijan in the Karabakh region.

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan wrote on his Facebook page: “Dear citizens, a government decision has now made the declaration of martial law and general mobilization in Armenia. I call on all reservists to come to the headquarters of the military commissions.”

In turn, Armenian Defense Minister David Tunoyan said, "Our response this time will be more severe than ever," stressing that "the Armenian army has all the necessary means to crush our enemy again."

A spokeswoman for the Armenian Ministry of Defense, Shushan Stepanyan, stated that thousands of citizens want to register as volunteers to go to the Karabakh fronts, adding at the same time that there is no need for the time being to recruit volunteers.

This comes as the spokesman for the Turkish presidency, Ibrahim Kalan, announced that they stand by Turkey.

The clashes renewed this morning on the northern border between Armenia and Azerbaijan, amid a Turkish-Russian entry on the crisis line, as Azerbaijan launched an attack on the mountainous Karabakh region, while the latter declared a state of war and general mobilization.
