Azerbaijan shot down an Armenian Mil Mi-24 'Hind' combat helicopter in the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, reportedly killing at least two crew members and drawing a promise of retaliation from Armenia.

The helicopter was shot down at 13:45 h local time on 12 November, according to a statement from the Armenian Ministry of Defence (MoD).

Armenia said that the helicopter belonged to the armed forces of the de facto Nagorno-Karabakh government and was on a training flight near the line of contact when it was shot down. "The enemy continues to carry out intensive fire from small arms of various calibres in the direction of the place of the incident," the statement said.
