On October 8th, an alleged Armenian suicide drone was destroyed by Azerbaijan’s air defense forces, according to Hikmet Hajiyev, Assistant of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Head of Foreign Policy Affairs Department of the Presidential Administration.

That would all be well, except if the drone was not actually an Israeli-made Harop UAV, which Armenia has no access to.

Who has access to these drones, one might ask?

Azerbaijan, it is constantly supplied with them as per a weapons procurement deal concluded in the past between Tel’Aviv and Baku.

The assistant to the Azerbaijani president simply published photographs of a destroyed Azerbaijani drone, saying it is an Armenian drone.

The tweet can be seen below, as well as a screenshot in case the post was suddenly “misplaced.”

Hajiyev is also known for openly disclosing the presence of Turkish troops on the frontline.

He frequently publishes reports with various accusations towards Armenia, with very little evidence. Very little here is a generous term used to describe none at all.

Turkish media reports the strikes on the city of Ganja, but doesn’t mention that there are Turkish F-16s deployed at the air base there.

Hajiyev and Azerbaijan’s Ministry of Defense also accused Armenia of indiscriminately shelling civilian areas, no evidence has been provided.

It is similar to the accusations against Azerbaijan for shelling civilians in Nagorno-Karabakh’s capital Stepanakert, however, there’s ample evidence in that case.
