On the morning of October 13th, Azerbaijan accused Armenia of shelling the Tartar region.

Armenian Ministry of Defense spokesperson Shushan Stepanyan denied the accusations.

The Azerbaijan side continues pushing, any semblance of the ceasefire is gone.

A video was released purportedly showing the Armenian air defense destroying enemy UAVs presumably, even though it doesn’t become clear from the post.

Regardless, it is questionable that the Armenian ministry of defense would publish videos of its own stations being destroyed.

It is likely related to the AN-2 aircraft that was presumably downed.

The Azerbaijani air force operates Su-25 fighter jets along the border with the air support of Turkish Air Force F-16 fighter jets, according to the Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) authorities.

Air Defense units of Defense Army of Artsakh shot down one Su-25 attack aircraft in the north-eastern direction, according to reports.

In a very questionable and absurd accusation, Azerbaijan accused the Russian journalist Semyon Pegov, the author of the @WarGonzo project, who is in Artsakh, of illegally crossing the border of Azerbaijan, as well as anti-state calls and calls for terrorism.

Semyon Pegov has been reporting in video format all the military actions, that took place in the most dangerous spots in Artsakh.

According to the Artsakh authorities, 51 servicemen have died in repelling Azerbaijani attacks, not during the last few days, but since September 27th until October 12th.

This is only for Nagorno-Karabakh’s region; the Armenian side has lost 480 soldiers since September 27th.

Middle East expert Elizabeth Tsurkov published photos of Syrian mercenaries who fought against Armenians and were killed in action.

“Ibrahim Juma (in the circle) and Ahmad Lakhla from Rastan, Syria, were killed in battles in Azerbaijan. The photo of Ibrahim was taken in a hostel of Syrian mercenaries in Azerbaijan.

Their bodies, along with the bodies of about 50 more people, are to arrive at the Khivar Kilis checkpoint in 2 hours,” she wrote.

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said that Nagorno-Karabakh was near a humanitarian crisis due to Azerbaijan’s offensive.

“In fact, we are very close to a humanitarian crisis in the zone of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, if not to say that we have already faced a humanitarian crisis,” he said.

In his opinion, one of the solutions may be the recognition of the right of the people of Nagorno-Karabakh to self-determination, up to the recognition of the independence of Nagorno-Karabakh.

Pashinyan met with the ambassadors of foreign states. His main points:

  • It was Azerbaijan that carried out the attack on Nagorno-Karabakh.
  • This war would not have started if Turkey had not shown its willingness to fully participate in it.
  • Turkey’s involvement and incitement to war is also public.
  • Turkey recruited mercenaries and members of terrorist groups in Syria and brought them to the conflict zone in its own air transport.
  • This is part of Turkey’s expansionist policy, because the Armenians of the South Caucasus are the last obstacle on Turkey’s path to the east, north, southeast.
  • Azerbaijan’s official political goal is the extermination of Armenians, at least in Nagorno-Karabakh.
  • Azerbaijan does not respect the ceasefire. The ceasefire was to take effect on 10 October at 12:00. However, at 12:05, Azerbaijan launched an attack on the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, making an attempt to capture the city of Hadrut. At the moment, fighting is taking place in the Hadrut area.
  • Armenia has clearly stated its commitment to adhere to the ceasefire in accordance with the statement, we intend to observe the ceasefire, we are committed to these intentions.
  • In this war, the Armenian people are trying to resist the genocide unleashed against them.
  • We are ready to be constructive in this process. However, we believe that the resumption of the negotiation process should proceed in accordance with the logic laid down in the Moscow statement.

Meanwhile, in some good news for Azerbaijan Israel’s Supreme Court rejected the claim to ban the sale of weapons to Azerbaijan, due to lack of evidence of war crimes against Armenia.

In the morning of October 13th, the Azerbaijani armed forces resumed fighting in the Southern, Northern, North-Eastern and Eastern directions, conducting active rocket fire. The Azerbaijani forces are especially active in the North-Eastern part of the front line.

Likely in order to deny any responsibility, Azerbaijan’s Ministry of Defense is publishing videos showing empty spaces, which they’ve purportedly captured away from Armenia, since Armenia’s forces are nowhere to be seen.
