Country Summary: Terrorist groups that continue to plot attacks pose a risk in Azerbaijan. Terrorists may attack with little or no warning, targeting tourist locations, transportation hubs, markets/shopping malls, local government facilities, hotels, clubs, restaurants, places of worship, parks, major sporting and cultural events, educational institutions, airports, and other public areas.
Until September 2020 the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh and seven surrounding territories were under Armenian control. Following seven weeks of armed hostilities in the fall of 2020, Azerbaijan took control of these seven territories and parts of Nagorno-Karabakh. While the November 2020 ceasefire arrangement has largely held, military incidents occur on a regular basis. From September 13-15, 2022, military activity took place along the Armenia-Azerbaijan border, which caused damage to towns near the border.
