International Concerns Mount as Nagorno-Karabakh Faces Humanitarian Crisis

The ethnic Armenian residents of Nagorno-Karabakh are facing dire conditions as food and medicine run low in the main city of Stepanakert. US senators, led by Democrat Gary Peters, are calling for an international observer mission to be established in the region to address the growing concerns. The International Red Cross has managed to deliver relief aid, but it is clear that more help is desperately needed. The situation is critical, with residents essentially besieged and cut off from the outside world. Families are separated and many do not know if their loved ones are alive or dead. The international community must take action to prevent a worsening humanitarian crisis in Nagorno-Karabakh.
