Azerbaijani Defense Ministry has shown Armenian tanks and military vehicles that were seized in the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region.

In a statement Monday, Azerbaijan’s military said that they captured a large number of tanks, trucks, artillery systems and ammunition of Armenian forces.

Video and still photos released by the Defense Ministry show seized T72B1 and T-72AV main battle tanks, a few Ural and Kamaz military trucks and 122-mm D-30 howitzers.

Armenian and Azerbaijani forces ignored calls this past week by the United States, France and Russia for an immediate cease-fire in Nagorno-Karabakh, as fighting escalated to levels not seen since the 1990s. The three countries co-chair the OSCE Minsk Group, which is tasked with finding a peaceful solution. The OSCE is the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe.

Armenian separatists seized Nagorno-Karabakh, formerly an autonomous territory within Azerbaijan, in a bloody war in the 1990s that killed an estimated 30,000 people.

Talks to resolve the conflict have been halted since a 1994 cease-fire agreement among Armenia, Azerbaijan and Nagorno-Karabakh.
