At least 4 Azerbaijani soldiers have been killed in the border clashes with Armenian forces that strated on July 12. This time the clashes took place directly on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, i.e. not in the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (the unrecognized state controlled by Armenian forces) indicating the increasing tensions between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

Both Amernia and Azerbaijan accused each other of instigating the escalation.

The Azerbaijani Defense Ministry:

“Starting from noon on July 12, units of the Armenian Armed Forces, grossly violating the ceasefire in the Tovuz district of the Azerbaijani-Armenian state border, opened fire at our positions from artillery”.

According to it, 3 soldiers were killed and 5 others were injured during the exchange of artillery fire. Later, it reported that 4th soldier was killed in a firefight with Armenian forces.

“In the night battles with artillery, mortars and tanks, our units destroyed the enemy strong point, artillery, vehicles and personnel on the territory of the military unit. The enemy hides information about its casualties,” the ministry said.

The Azerbaijani military said that the Amernian side also suffered casualties in the confrontation.

Azerbaijani forces pound positions of the Armenian military:

The Armenian Armed Forces accused Azerbaijan of violating its state border. The press secretary of the Armenian Ministry of Defense Shushan Stepanyan wrote on Facebook that no Armenian was killed and blamed the Azerbaijani side for the escalation.

“For some reason unknown to us, the Azerbaijani armed forces attempted to violate the state border of the Republic of Armenia in the Tavush direction in an UAZ vehicle,” Stepanyan said. “After warning the Armenian side, leaving the UAZ, the enemy troops returned to their positions.”

She added that later Azerbaijani troops supported by artillery fire tried to capture a check point of the Armenian Armed Forces, but the attack was repelled.

The Armenian military also accused Azerbaijan of shelling the village of Agdam. In turn, Armenia claims, it shells military targets only.

On top of this, Turkey’s Foreign Ministry issued a statement strongly condemning actions of Armenian armed forces that it blaimed for the escalation. Ankara described Armenia’s actions as a new manifestation of its aggressive nationalism that was repelled by Azerbaijan.

“Turkey, with all its facilities, will continue to stand with Azerbaijan in its fight to protect its territorial integrity,” the ministry said.

Turkey and Azerbaijan are close regional allies, and Ankara always supports Baku in its conflicts with Erevan.

Meanwhile, the Collective Security Treaty Organization will hold an emergency meeting on the situation on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border. Armenia is a member of the Russia-led security organization alongside with Belarus, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan. After the 2018 coup in Armenia when Nikol Pashinyan came to power Armenia was successfully working to undermine its relations with the CSTO and Russia by pushing an apparent anti-Russian and pro-Western course in many cases. The birght dream of the Pashinyan government is to sell its loyality to the United States for some coins and step on the way of a ‘full European integration’ as the modern Armenian government likes to call this process. The issue of this plan is that Washington will never do a hand’s turn in the even of the expected collapse of Armenian forces in a direct conflict with the Turkish-Azerbaijani bloc. So, currently, the Armenian government tries to play a double game crying for help from the CSTO and Russia every time when the situation escalates, but at the same time providing an anti-Russian foreign policy.

    US and Israel are arming the corrupt Azeri puppet regime into launching aggression, but weak Azerbaijan should be careful as Armenia can reach Baku and Nagorno-Karabakh is eternal and integral part of Armenia like Ukraine is to Russia.

    • adzsiam

      While I don’t deny Armenia’s military capability to hold its own, I seriously doubt it can in the long term against a combined Azeri and Turkish push, if it doesn’t get assistance from Russia, let alone the West. Armenia is playing a dangerous game of playing two sides for its own benefit.

      • Russia will keep the Turks out, Armenia can take back the south-west corner with Iran from the Azeris, it also possesses Tochka missiles that can strike their capital.

          Azerbaijan is the Saudi Arabia of the Caucasus, its military has bought a lot of western and Zionist shiny weapons but can not fight.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Zionist cunts are also “advising” the Azeris, Baku has the largest Mossad station with a whole street blocked off.

          • occupybacon

            Wasn’t Baku one of the Kazars capital?

          • You have no idea how many Zionist drones they use, and how many have been shot down

          • Western? Russia has been selling weapons to Azerbaijan left and right.

          • Swift Laggard II

            the treacherous russis sell to everyone as long as you have the cash. they have no allies

          • cechas vodobenikov

            it is the immoral American fascist that sell more weapons than any nation–including the most genocidal nations on the planet—Congo, s arabia—etc; Russia sells weapons to nations to offset amerikan imperialism

          • Swift Laggard II

            no one has said they should not sell weapons. they should sell as much as they can just like everyone else. But like I said Russi has no allies, anyone with cash they sell to. treacherous fellows

          • JIMI JAMES

            Save it for eu fake news,see russia collaborates,rather than blackmails like usa!
            Huge difference and besides the cia is known to create christian vs muslim hits!

          • guest

            Russia has bipolar policies and no consistency.

          • cechas vodobenikov

            Russia maintains good relations w both Armenia and Azerbaijan—

        • occupybacon

          Lol, go thank to the American gendarme or you’ll be permanently at war dyeing in millions

        • Frank G

          they Armenia, also are the only other country to have Iskanders.

      • d’Artagnan

        Armenia was one of the most integrated Soviet Republic like Belarus and its ties Russia and Iran date back a millennium. Russia has military bases in Armenia that were used via Iran in the anti-terrorist operations in Syria. Vast majority of Armenian officers are trained in Russia, including many pilots serving with the Russia Federation aerospace forces, including Captain Mayor Albert Davidyan, who gave his in Syria flying a Russian SU-30. Armenian military is well trained and has modern Russian weapons and Armenia has a deep sense of nationalism and innate dislike for Azeri Turks. Armenia can more than hold its own with Russian and Iranian support.

        • occupybacon

          Why should Iran support a war against a Shia country?

          • Swift Laggard II

            because the place is a base for tsionist operations against Iran. don’t be ignorant

          • occupybacon

            Any link?

          • Codenamed ‘Gordon’

            all weapons intended for FSA terrorists go through Romania and Azerbaijan logistic links

          • occupybacon

            How do you know?

          • guest

            Azerbaijan is like the Emirates and a staging post for terrorism and Zionist base.

      • JIMI JAMES

        ILLOGICAL,WHAT IS LOGICAL IS CIA TRYING TO GET A PIPE THROUGH ARMENIA,
        BUT THIS WILL FAIL AS TURKEY IS WELL AWARE OF THE RUSSIAN-C.I.S STATES!
        WHICH KINDA RENDERS SPECUATIONS AS JUST ANOTHER CIA-MAGIC-WAND-FAIL!

    • Mustafa Mehmet

      gd try

    • Harry Smith

      Oh come on. Armenia is a Washington puppet now. After Pashinyan arrested the leader of pro-Russian opposition don’t think Russia has any reason to save Armenia. At my point, Kremlin will pretend that it tries to solve the problem but without any real efforts. Like in case with LNA when they started negotiations with France and lost Russian PMC support.
      Even more: as Armenia now tries to become an USA outpost in the region, Iran, Russia and Turkey are interested in some punishment of Armenia to make Armenians living in there to have more realistic approach for the regional politics.

    • lovethemapples

      Russia is the biggest arms supplier to Azerbaijan actually for the last 10years, 20years or almost 30years

  • Paul

    Dead Turks:) Party time lol

  • lovethemapples

    13th second shows a body flying to right side -15-20meters to the entrance. Since it is Armenian position and 0 casualties so far, news on actual casualties are yet to come.
    If it is this position 40°54’42.1″N 45°30’51.0″E, then Azerbaijan must have flown a drone with a missile deep inside Armenian position as the 12th second shows projectile from south-west (Armenian territory).

    • Ivan Freely

      I don’t know if the object on the right was a body or not. However, there is definitely one if you look on the left side of the blast. Just as the roof top is blown up, you can see a body fly over the left wall onto the grass.

  • Rhodium 10

    Russia saved Armenia 2 times in the last years…during Nogorno Karabaj war and during Syrian war where there is Armenian population ( Damascus, Latakia, Aleppo, Deir Ezzor)…while actually Armenian Government smell the stench of NATO….

    • guest

      Azeris have taken a serious beating yet again. They are hiding their true losses according to Russian media.
