Azerbaijan Makes First Gains In Emerging War Against Armenia (Map, Video)

Click to see the full-size image

The Azerbaijani Armed Forces captured 6 villages in the areas of Fizuli and Jabrail in the contested Nagorno Karabakh region, near the border with Iran, according to a statement by the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry. The Azerbaijani side also claimed that its forces captured several strategic heights there.

According to pro-Azerbaijani sources, the number of “liberated” villages is 7. Armenian sources as always deny any advances by Azerbaijan claiming  that they have been successfully repelling attacks of the ‘enemy’.

If reports about the capture of Garakhanbeyli, Garvand, Kend Gyaryadiz villages in Fizuli area and Boyuk Marchanli and Ruzgar villages in Jabrayil area are confirmed, Azerbaijani forces made an important step in their wider goal to secure roads to Fizuli and Mindjevan.

The Azerbaijani side released a video showing  strikes on positions and equipment of Armenian forces (the footage reportedly shows drone strikes):

Meanwhile, Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar held a telephone conversation with Azerbaijani Defense Minister Zakir Garalov. According to him, Turkey is ready to support efforts to ensure the territorial integrity of brotherly Azerbaijan to the last, Akar said during the conversation.

Turkey and Azerbaijan are long-time strategic partners and have strong ties in the military and security sector. Turkey regularly supports Azerbaijan on the international arena, including the conflict with Armenia. Just recently, the sides conducted joint military drills inside Azerbaijan, and according to pro-Armenian sources, at least a part of the Turkish equipment remained there. There are also reports about the deployment of Turkish proxy groups from Syria to Azerbaijan.

On the other hand, Armenia recently participated in the large-scale multi-national drills in Russia – Kavkaz 2020 (they ended on September 26). Therefore, the Russian military group permanently deployed in the Caucasus region is ready and mobilized. Thus, the development of the conflict in the Nagorno-Karabakh region will mainly depend on the position of supporters of Armenia and Azerbaijan. Despite the pro-US attitude of the current political regime in Armenia, Russia still remains a close partner of the country and the main guarantor of its sovereignty. Therefore, if Moscow steps in and employ its influence, the threat of a full military defeat from the Azerbaijani-Turkish bloc that is currently pretty large will be removed. So, the situation will have all chances to de-escalate. On the other hand, the readiness of Turkey and Azerbaijan to develop the advance on the ground will depend on the scale of support to Armenia demonstrated by Russia.

Nor Russia nor Turkey are interested in an open confrontation. Therefore, they will likely work to find a political solution to the current escalation and restore the ceasefire regime. In turn, the United States, the new best friend of the Armenian regime, is the main side interested in the destabilization of the region and the provocation of Turkish-Russian tensions.

In June 2018, SouthFront released a detailed anlaysis of the shifting balance of power in the South Caucasus and prospects of the possible Armenian-Azerbaijani war:

The title should be ” Azerbaijan CLAIM first gains”. There is always a huge discrepancy between their claims and the reality.
At this stage, the most “vulnerable” Armenian village which is almost on the line of contact, Talish, is still under Armenian control. Therefore Azerbaijani claims are baseless. Other villages are out of reach and much farer from the LoC.

Iranian mullahs should be careful as Turkey take their occupied Azerbaijan too. It is all Turkish land. Israel upgraded Turkish Sabra tanks for this task.

Armenia will be liberated and merged with northeast Turkish province of Kars.

Dönme, also spelled Dönmeh, (Turkish: “Convert”), Jewish sect founded in Salonika (now Thessaloníki, Greece) in the late 17th century, after the conversion to Islām of Shabbetai Tzevi,
whom the sectarians believed to be the Messiah. The Dönme, who numbered
about 15,000 in the late 20th century, are found primarily in Istanbul,
Edirne, and İzmir, Turke.

I reply to Free Ape comment:

He was talking about (guest) with (Lone Ranger).
This guy (guest) also write this: “Iranian mullahs should be careful as Turkey take their occupied Azerbaijan too. It is all Turkish land. Israel upgraded Turkish Sabra tanks for this task.”

I said he fooled you (Free Ape) and I said it with some lovely words such as (bitch).
Free Ape seem to think this guy (guest) is Iranian which I disagree, because the comment/s he wrote before. Plus Free Ape is a fuking moron. :)

Now why are you telling me about Dönme?
I don’t want to go down in that rabbit hole.

Armenians dont need Russia to beat the shit of Azerbaijan. Better that Russia dont get involved as they did in 94 when their only action of the war was to stop the Armenian offensive.
Russia only utility is to keep Turkey in check. And they will do so.

Armenia picked Russia as an ally, its fatal mistake as Russia will run away as usual.

Assad must stay

Hope not

John Brown

Again, without Russia there would be no Armenia right now as Armenia would be a
conquered part of Turkey and Armenians would be exterminated again and

Armenia?? Fool.

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has pledged support for
Azerbaijan, calling Armenia “the biggest threat to peace and
tranquillity in the region.” US and other NATO allies have warned Russia to stay away from the conflict, and pledged support for Turkey.

“to stay away from the conflict”
Or what? What they can do? Does Germany or France have military base on Caucasus? Even Fashington have no any bases here. Their support to Turkey even more hilarious after last few years of tensions between Erdogan and Washington with “mighty” vassals from EU.

hans meiser

werent we just doing the caucasus wargames together how interesting of course iran was just observer but still this was an obvious conflict to break out considering how obsessed comrade erdogan is to become part of the russian federation and iran isnt unwilling to have some south caucasian former satrapies back into order and sanity

hans meiser

isnt erdogan nice trying to jump into the arms of us willingly by becoming less and less able to govern and control the mess he started

hans meiser

how much does russia buy inside of turkey because i guess from the amount of russians that are in turkey you are as busy as us to own bits and bits of turkey to end the puzzle game

Being allies is a mutual thing.
Armenia backstabbed Russia a few times in recent times, same as Belorussia.
I think both countries need to learn a lesson about why its a bad idea to bend over to the CIA and Uncle Sam.

paolinks

Russia should select hear allies better. Pashinyan is a threacherous NATO cock-licker.

John Brown

Wrong.

Russia will let Azerbaijan get a piece as a lesson to Armenia. I
wonder if Armenians will wake up in time before their Zio Shabbos Goy
leaders destroy them all.

The Azerbaijan leader is also a moron for sucking Zio d_ck. I don’t think Iran and Turkey appreciate it.

Whichever, country has the least stupid leaders will win though
both are trying to win the most stupid leader contest.

Reminds me of the idiot Viktor Yanukovych and the other idiot Alexander
Lukashenko. I bet the empire assassinates Alexander Lukashenko very soon

Phoron

It’s not a done deal yet, but they are playing the same sort of game, flirting with Globohomo as if geopolitics is like some open-air fruit market, where the two big buyers – Russia and the West – will engage in a bidding war for overripe tomatoes.

Most likely this will be self-limiting as Armenia’s newly globohomo-friendly government takes serious political lumps at home for what will certainly become an Armenian defeat…

Azerbaijan can’t lift a finger without Ottoman backing. Armenia is traditionally a Russian ally, and even though the current regime is wooing Amerikastan, it can’t survive without Russian protection. In any regular war Armenia will smash Azerbaijan flat but the Ottomans are guaranteed to get involved. Now Russia and the Ottomans are on different sides in Libya of course, Russia would back Greece in any conflict with Ankara, and increasingly Russia is getting fed up with Ottoman attempts to annex North Syria. I can only surmise that this is an Ottoman warning to Russia.

Raptar Driver

Yes, I believe you maybe correct.

Same lies with false “genocide” of billions people. Some tribes of cherkes’ (сircassians) were allies of osmans, lost a war and preferred to flee to Turkey. But many other cherkes people still living at North Caucasus in Adygea, Karachaevo-Cherkessia regions. Cherkessia got it?

Servet Köseoğlu

ı never lie anton.. crimea was vassal of ottomans but north caucaus never belonged to ottomans perhaps you mentioned influence over that territory because of high-muslim population..

Антон С

Gurchistan (Gruzia) and east shore of Black sea was osmanian, we got it after war in 1828-29 to create corridor to Tiflis (turkish name of Tbilisi) and Yerevan. Cherkes tribes were vassals of Istanbul as crimean tatars. Egypt, Algeria etc were vassals too and could be recognized as self-governing territories, but political map of these regions was colored with the same color as the core, i.e. this is all one state.

Servet Köseoğlu

georgia south caucaus not north caucaus…circassians not vassals but spiritual brotherhood lets say..and romania-wallacha was also vassal…map is quite wrong..there has to be Yemen also..sudan also was under our influence as well..even island suakin was port of Turkish pirates etc etc..ps:every empire has to die..it lasted 625 years..after 1683-1699 great turkish war..it started to collapse and with french revolution 1789 collapse accelerated..ı am glad Republic had been formed..ı never liked ottoman Empire where people were slaves..

All the gulf monorachies are as you described. Has Iran ever gotten involved militarily in them ? Why not ?

Rhodium 10

Armenians removed a pro Russian president and now need Russian help to avoid that Turkish troops enter in Nogorno Karabaj and in parts of Armenia like they did in Syria, Libya and many years ago in Cyprus…NATO will not help them as we have seen what happened with kurds areas in Syria.
