"The siege of Stepanakert during which Azeri forces killed several thousand
in bombings of schools and hospitals, was Guernica writ small."

Could mean "with less publicity," or it could mean creeping illiteracy.
I'm guessing it's the former.

Probably about 300 people died in the bombing of Guernica.
