On Tuesday 19 September, Azerbaijan launched an attack on several locations in Nagorno-Karabakh. Twenty-four hours later, a ceasefire was announced by all parties, followed by people moving to look for safety inside and outside the region. Armenian authorities reported on Wednesday 27 September that over 28,000 people have already crossed the Lachin corridor, located between Nagorno-Karabakh and the Armenian border, seeking safety and assistance in Armenia.
On Thursday 21 September, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) sent a team to Goris, in Syunik province, southern Armenia, to provide aid to people fleeing Nagorno-Karabakh to this province, after several months of living under siege. MSF teams are preparing to provide mental health support to those affected, while we remain ready to adapt to evolving needs as more people arrive.
