    YEREVAN (Sputnik) - The Armenian cabinet has declared martial law and a full mobilization of citizens as a result of the escalating tensions in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh, the Armenian prime minister Nikol Pashinyan said on Sunday.

    "Based on a decision by the government, martial law and a full mobilization have been declared in the Republic of Armenia. These decisions take effect immediately after official publication. I urge all personnel attached to the military to report at their territorial military commissions," Pashinyan wrote in a Facebook post.

    Military clashes between the armed forces of Armenia and Azerbaijan broke out along the line of contact in Nagorno-Karabakh in the early hours of Sunday morning. Both sides have accused the other of targeting civilian settlements.
