Azerbaijani Army Destroyed Nagorno-Karabakh Bridge With Israeli-Made Ballistic Missile (Video)

Donate

On October 2 morning, the Azerbaijani military targeted a bridge in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh with an Israeli-made missile.

The bridge, which links Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh near the village of Asagi Sus, was struck with what appears to be a LORA theater quasi-ballistic missile. The pinpoint strike resulted in the complete destruction of the bridge.

Developed by the Israel Aerospace Industries, LORA is a 600 mm missile with a range of 400 km. The missile is guided by a GPS-aided inertial navigation system with a terminal optical seeker. The advanced guidance system gives LORA a circular error probable of 10 meters only.

In 2018, it was confirmed that the Azerbaijani Armed Forces had purchased a number of LORA missile systems from Israel.

This was likely the first ballistic missile attack since the start of the battle in Nagorno-Karabakh on September 27. The Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan accused Armenian forces of launching OTR-21 Tochka tactical ballistic missiles on several occasions. However, Yerevan continues to dismiss these claims.

The ongoing battle in Nagorno-Karabakh will not likely end anytime soon. Both sides appear to be unwilling to reach a ceasefire agreement.
