Baku, Azerbaijan – The clashes between Azerbaijan and Armenia entered the seventh day. As the Azerbaijani army continued to advance in Nagorno-Karabakh, Armenian soldiers who surrendered with the white flag were taken prisoner.
Tension continues on the Azerbaijan-Armenia line over Nagorno-Karabakh, which began on September 27. Hot developments continue to occur in the region where the eyes of the world are turned.
After the Armenian army opened fire on civilian settlements, the Azerbaijani army, which counterattacked, continues its advance. The Azerbaijani army, which besieged the Nagorno-Karabakh region from the North and South, captured a group of Armenian soldiers.
The Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan served images of Armenian soldiers who surrendered in a white barracks.
The ministry said that the villages of Güzelanlı, Alibeyli and Ayağ Garvand, connected to the city of Agdam, were under artillery fire, but all measures were taken against the Armenian army.
In a statement, the Ministry announced the creation of new bases and the destruction of a large number of military equipment belonging to the Armenian army. The ministry, in the list of destroyed military equipment from 27 September until 2 October, 230 tanks and other armored vehicles, 250 artillery pieces, rocket launchers, mortars, Air Defense Command and control device 38 10, and command and observation points, 7 ammunition store, one of more than 130 vehicles and S-300 anti-aircraft missile system of that has taken place, he said.
On the other hand, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan made scandalous statements about Turkey to the French press.
“The situation is much more serious than the clashes in 2016, ” Pashinyan told Le Figaro newspaper. It may be appropriate to compare this to the situation in which Armenians were massacred in 1915. The state of Turkey, which denies the past, is once again moving on the path of massacre,” he said.
Pashinyan, who resorted to the so-called genocide lie, did not provide any evidence of Turkey’s claims that it had sent mercenaries to Nagorno-Karabakh.
The main reason for the tension between Azerbaijan and Armenia is Nagorno-Karabakh; with the collapse of the Soviet Union, Nagorno-Karabakh became a region of tension between Armenia and Azerbaijan. Tensions have been escalating for more than 20 years, with the Armenians of Nagorno-Karabakh demanding that Nagorno-Karabakh be transferred from Soviet Azerbaijan to Soviet Armenia.
Despite the ceasefire between the sides, there are frequent clashes on the border between Azerbaijan and Armenia, which occupies the region. The tension is also being closely watched by the international public because of the gas and oil pipeline corridor in the region.
