Armenia used 9K720 Iskander tactical ballistic missiles during the recent conflict in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh, the Azerbaijani National Agency for Mine Action (ANAMA) confirmed on March 31.
According to the agency, fragments of two exploded Iskander missiles were uncovered during a combing operation in the town of Shusha on March 15.
The ANAMA provided photos of the missile’s debris as well as the coordinates of where they were exactly found. Both missiles landed in the heart of Shusha.

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan revealed earlier this year that Iskander missiles were launched at Azerbaijani troops in Shusha. However, he claimed that the missiles did not explode or only exploded by 10%.
The new information provided by ANMA confirms, without a doubt, that Shusha was hit by two Iskander missiles. Both missiles exploded.
The War Gonzo Telegram channel revealed that one of the missile was fired at a basement in Shusha where nearly 500 Azerbaijani service members and Syrian mercenaries were taking shelter. The target was completely destroyed. Many were allegedly killed.
Azerbaijan launched a large attack on Armenian forces in Nagorno-Karabakh on September 27, 2020. The attack ended on November 10 of the same year with a Russian-brokered deal that saw most of the region returning to Baku’s control. Since then, PM Pashinyan has been dodging responsibility for the outcome of the war.
