On September 19, Baku launched what it described as a “localized anti-terrorist operation,” which was in reality a major military strike on Nagorno-Karabakh, whose predominantly ethnic-Armenian population had established the unrecognized Republic of Artsakh. By the next day, Baku regained full control of the region, and
42,000 Armenians have since left Nagorno-Karabakh. The line of cars with refugees moving towards the Armenian border in the Lachin Corridor stretches for miles. On September 26, Maxar Technologies published this satellite photo of the line of refugees, visible from space.
