There were suprise combat readiness inspection drills in Armenia. The recent drills were to test their combat readiness skills given the current situation between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

For a little history of the situation between Armenia and Azerbaijan, it began July 12th in Azerbaijan’s Tovuz district on the Azerbaijan-Armenia state border, the Armenian armed forces opened fire at the Azerbaijani positions using artillery. The battles continued until July 16. This conflict originally began back in 1988 when Armenia claimed territorial rights which Azerbaijan claimed that was their territory not Armenia's. The resultant combat saw Armenia making a 20% gain of territory that included the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts. In a 1994 ceasefire agreement was followed by peace negotiations. Armenia was cited by the UN for not implementing four UN Security Council resolutions on the withdrawal of its armed forces from Nagorno Karabakh and the surrounding districts. So the impasse between the two has continued to this day.

Something to note regarding Armenia, ever since Armenia became the worlds' first Christian nation, it has had to fight its way through history as a nation. It has rebuffed the Arabs and the Turks on several occasions throughout its history. Urahtu began in 860 B.C. and by the 6th century was replaced in 6 B.C. by the Orontid dynasty aka the Satrapy of Armenia. In the 1st century it became the first state in the world to adopt Christianity as its official religion, and in the late 3rd to early 4th century A.D.. In 301 A.D. it officially adopted Christianity. From the 16th to the 19th centuries the traditional Armenia homeland came under the rule of the Ottomans and Persians and ruled by them for over two centuries.

The Armenian alphabet that we see today was created by Mesrop Mashtots an Armenian linguist in 405 A.D..
