The official number of Armenian service members who were killed in the battle of the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh between September 27 and November 10 has risen to 1,383.
On November 13, the Ministry of Defense of Armenian shared a list with the names of 44 service members who were killed in the battle. The list was likely the last.
While Armenia was transparent with its human losses in the battle, Azerbaijan has not released any official count of its human losses, thus far.
The Armenian MoD claims that 7,630 Azerbaijani service members and Turkish-sponsored Syrian mercenaries were killed in Nagorno-Karabakh battle. However, the Armenian Karabakh Records reported only 1,119 confirmed Azerbaijani casualties as of October 28.

As for Syrian mercenaries, the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said in its most report that 250 of them were killed in Nagorno-Karabakh.
The battle of Nagorno-Karabakh, which began with an Azerbaijani attack on September 27, also claimed the lives of dozens of civilians on both sides. At least 54 Armenians and 91 Azerbaijani were killed in the battel that ended with a Russian-brokered peace deal.
The exact numbers of human losses on both the Armenian and Azerbaijani sides in the battle of Nagorno-Karabakh will likely remain unknown. Both countries have been providing very little information, that is hard to verify.
