and Azerbaijan on 27 September following clashes, in which Yerevan said Azeri forces shelled the region of Nagorno-Karabakh and Baku accused Armenian forces of shelling Azeri military and civilian positions.

helicopters were shot down.

Azerbaijan, Armenia on war footing

Ministry spokeswoman Shushan Stepanyan said Armenian forces hit three Azerbaijani tanks. The number of casualties is yet to be confirmed.

Nagorno-Karabakh is an ethnic Armenian enclave within Azerbaijan that has been out of Azerbaijan’s control since the end of a war in 1994. Both sides have heavy military presence along a demilitarized zone separating the region from the rest of Azerbaijan.

Azerbaijan's defense ministry denied the claim that its helicopters and tanks had been hit. But President Ilham Aliyev said in a televised address to the nation that “there are losses among the Azerbaijani forces and the civilian population as a result of the Armenian bombardment."

Stepanyan said the fighting Sunday began with an Azerbaijani attack, but Azerbaijan said the Armenian side attacked and that Azerbaijan launched a counteroffensive.

The news was harshly received in Turkey, a close ally of Azerbaijan.

Turkey vows support to Azerbaijan with 'all our means'

Turkey today vowed complete support for Baku and called on Armenia to give up its "aggression" after heavy fighting erupted in Azerbaijan's breakaway region of Nagorny Karabakh.

"We will support our Azerbaijani brothers with all our means in their fight to protect their territorial integrity," Turkish Defence Minister Hulusi Akar said in a statement.

Turkey’s ruling party spokesman Omer Celik also tweeted saying: “We vehemently condemn Armenia’s attack on Azerbaijan. Armenia has once against committed a provocation, ignoring law." He promised Turkey would stand by Azerbaijan and said, “Armenia is playing with fire and endangering regional peace."

Turkish presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin also took to Twitter to condemn Armenia. “Armenia has violated the ceasefire by attacking civilian settlements ... the international community must immediately say stop to this dangerous provocation."
Mostly mountainous Nagorno-Karabakh — a region some 4,400 square kilometers (1,700 square miles) or about the size of the U.S. state of Delaware — lies 50 kilometers (30 miles) from the Armenian border. Local soldiers backed by Armenia also occupy some Azerbaijani territory outside the region.

International efforts to settle the conflict have stalled and fighting sporadically breaks out. In July, one of the most severe outbreaks of fighting in years left 16 people from both sides dead.
I heard that this conflict can easily expand to multi-state conflicts. What is China's position on this conflict?

China has decent relations with both Armenia and Azerbaijan. If I am not mistaken, China has done small arms exports to both countries. The bigger worry is that the war may drag both Russia and Turkey to opposite sides. That would be unfortunate as both Turkey and Russia are potentially among the strongest states more aligned closer with China. China should try to appeal for calm.

China exported long range rockets to both countries.

Could you imagine the outcry by the MSM and, indeed some members here regarding freedom. Etc.

But because it's the other way around, not a peep from the MSM.

No surprise! Maybe we should stop calling the so-called main stream media (MSM), main stream media! They are really are not any type of reputable media. When we talk about the MSM we are really talking about the US propaganda outlets and the propaganda outlets of US vassal/satellite states.

This reminds me of when the US uses the term "international community". When referring to the internal community of course , they are referring to themselves and their vassal / satellite states first and foremost.

U.S. Marine Corps F-35B Crashes, KC-130J Crash Lands After Mid-Air Collision.

At approximately 16.00LT on Sept. 29, 2020, a U.S. Marine Corps F-35B and a KC-130J made contact during AAR (Air-to-Air Refueling) operations. As a consequence of the mid-air collision, the F-35B crashed while the KC-130J managed to perform a safe crash landing on a field near Thermal Airport, California.

The pilot of the STOVL (Short Take Off Vertical Landing) variant of the Lightning II jet ejected safely and, according to the USMC, is being treated. All the KC-130J crew members have been reported safe.
