Azerbaijani Drone Films Strike On Armenian Troops In Karabakh

Click to see full-size image

On October 13th, a video was released showing a UAV strike on Armenian soldiers.

The video is quite crude, more than likely taken with a smartphone camera.

In the video, following the strike cheers and celebrations can be heard in Azerbaijani.

The entire situation is puzzling, in the way that presumably Azerbaijan is capturing areas, which they attempt to prove with videos of empty houses and streets, and so on.

Presumably, they’re holding the upper hand in the fighting, and as such strikes on Armenian forces should, more or less, be an everyday occurrence, surely not something to warrant such a significant celebration.

However, the video itself looks at least a bit strannge. Contrary to their Turkish allies, Azerbaijani armed forces have little combat experience in controlling the Turkish and Israeli-made UAVs, evident by the debris that Armenians showcase daily. After all, October 13th is more than two weeks after the fighting began, it is not the first day, nor did this strike lead to any significant gains, as far as it is known, so what else would warrant the celebrations?

The reaction of Azerbaijani service members may indicate that there are some other ‘specialists’ (Turkish ones) that manage most of combat drone operations of Azerbaijan in the conflict. This contributes to the Armenain claims that the air domain of the Azerbaijani military operation is fully controlled by Turkey.

Separately, another video was released, which shows purportedly killed Armenian soldiers on a battlefield in an undisclosed area along the frontline.

It is a separate video from the drone strike, and shows different Armenian casualties of the war (reportedly near Jabrayil):

They were sent by Parshinyan to die. And Parshinyan would control the media.

Arman Melkonyan

Dishonorable cowards these Turks and Azeris are, killing people from the air like that.

Even for the actual fighting on the ground the Turks use ISIS terrorists from Syria.

Turks are the miasma of the human race.

Kohlhaas

Okay, I have an idea. Let Aliyev and Pashinyan wrestle. Winner takes NK, sounds honorable enough for you?

Arman Melkonyan

Pashinyan doesn’t look like a tough guy to me and he’s half Aliyev’s size.

No.

Kohlhaas

Then what? Tell me what is on your mind so that I can tell it to Aliyev.

Arman Melkonyan

Gay porn featuring Tayyip Erdogan and Aliyev?

Random Dude

Are you talking about movies where, when the opponent is unarmed the hero drops the weapon and they start wrestling?

Arman Melkonyan

I’m talking about the Turk who claims to be the most moral and fair people of the world.

These terror drones, F-16s and ISIS headchoppers airlifted to Artsakh prove otherwise.

I understand concepts such as honor and morality and justice are worthless and meaningless to you Americans.

That’s your problem.

Random Dude

Do you mean that if someone has a technological advantage, it is immoral to use that advantage?

Magnus Dracus

the mean advantage is Turkish support….but “something” could come

Arman Melkonyan

It’s immoral to be immoral.

Having technological advantage doesn’t endow you with the right to be immoral.

Especially when YOU are claiming to be righteous.

The Turks completely went off their rocker this week where a lower court refused to comply with a decision of the Turkish Supreme Court, all on Erdogan’s orders.

Turkey is finished as a state with the rule of law. Anyone who lives in Turkey is a slave and any outsider who does business with Turkey is corrupt.

No ifs and buts about it.

Random Dude

Which specific act do you consider immoral?

Arman Melkonyan

All deliberate actions to cause pain and suffering for the sake of causing pain and suffering or for no rational reason at all, are immoral.

Random Dude

And how did you determine that “causing pain and suffering” is not only the result but also a purpose.

Arman Melkonyan

The “purpose” of genociding Armenians just because you hate them and want to steal their piece of land even though you don’t need it for peaceful purposes, is immoral, illegitimate and plain wrong, genius.

Random Dude

You just paraphrased what you mentioned in the previous comment. My question is, how did you come to a conclusion that their purpose is to kill and make Armenians suffer, as opposed to another possible motive of taking the land which they think is theirs, and kill the combatants that stand in their way.

Arman Melkonyan

Because the land doesn’t belong to them.

It was Armenian from since 4000 years ago and had an overwhelmingly Armenian population before and after Azerbaijan was created only a century ago.

The Armenians chose independence from the Azeris bent on exterminating them. The principle of self-determination is universally recognized as is the right to life.

Artsakh’s nominal administration only, was “gifted” to the Azeris as a bribe to the Turks.

Azerbaijan, in the position of an independent sovereign state, never wholly owned Artsakh which was an autonomous oblast in the USSR of which Azerbaijan itself was part of to begin with.

In addition, and as mentioned by Kasparov himself, Soviet law granted autonomous oblasts/regions the right to vote for independence upon dissolution of the USSR.

Lastly, and not only for your information:

United Nations General Assembly Resolution 1514 (XV), 14 December 1960

Convinced that all peoples have an inalienable right to complete freedom, the exercise of their sovereignty and the integrity of their national territory,

…to this end Declares that:…

2. All peoples have the right to self-determination; by virtue of that right they freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development…

4. All armed action or repressive measures of all kinds directed against dependent peoples shall cease in order to enable them to exercise peacefully and freely their right to complete independence, and the integrity of their national territory shall be respected.

5. Immediate steps shall be taken, in Trust and Non-Self-Governing Territories or all other territories which have not yet attained independence, to transfer all powers to the peoples of those territories, without any conditions or reservations, in accordance with their freely expressed will and desire, without any distinction as to race, creed or colour, in order to enable them to enjoy complete independence and freedom.

*The UN is contradicting itself by demanding that Armenians vacate their own lands or accept to be genocided again by the Turks.*

Random Dude

Again that is the Armenian opinion. The Azerbaijani opinion is that it does belong. Which creates a possibility that the purpose of the conflict is not ethnic conflict but a territorial dispute. So I come back to my question: what makes you think that their purpose (note: the purpose cannot be based on the 3rd party opinion) is to kill and make Armenians suffer?

Arman Melkonyan

Because as I patiently explained to your disingenuous self providing ample documented evidence for you to parse, there remains no other possibility, all other options having been discredited by the facts available to everyone.

Turk,

You are simply sadistic, dishonest psychopaths who hate working for a living, instead always opting for torturing and massacring human beings and stealing their lands.

Have a nice day.

Random Dude

ummmm ok

Hatersgonnahate

uhhhh what an article WOWWW

Hatersgonnahate

do not write too much. nobody is reading ahahaha

Arman Melkonyan

Because the land doesn’t belong to them.

It was Armenian from since 4000 years ago and had an overwhelmingly Armenian population before and after Azerbaijan was created only a century ago. Artsakh’s population was 85 percent Armenian when Armenians seceded from nominal Azeri rule in 1988.

The Armenians chose independence from the Azeris bent on exterminating them. The principle of self-determination is universally recognized as is the right to life.

Artsakh’s nominal administration only, was “gifted” to the Azeris by the perfidious dictator Stalin as a bribe to the Turks.

Azerbaijan, in the position of an independent sovereign state, never wholly owned Artsakh which was an autonomous oblast in the USSR of which Azerbaijan itself was part of to begin with.

In addition, and as mentioned by Kasparov himself, Soviet law granted autonomous oblasts/regions the right to vote for independence upon dissolution of the USSR.

Lastly, and not only for your information:

United Nations General Assembly Resolution 1514 (XV), 14 December 1960

So what is your idea about Azerbaijani refugees?

Erol

What about Missile attack to civilians in Gence?
Was this brave?

SevenMoons

Hitting civilians are war crimes.

catalin zt

Not hitting single neuron goat lovers!

Arman Melkonyan

The Armenians tried to hit the Azeri airport whence your Turkish terror drones and Turkish F-16s take off to kill Armenians.

Even before that, you Azeris started bombing Stepanakert and other Artsakh cities’ civilian population centers.

Whatever the Armenians do, they are trying to protect themselves from you.

You Turks and Azeris started attacking the Armenians even while you publicly declaimed you were just retaliating against the barbarous Armenians who only kill civilians.

What dishonest creatures you are. According to the Turks and the Azeris, not one Azeri or Turkish soldier died yet.

This war is going to have deep and long-lasting consequences for you.

You Turks have shown the world what you really are (again).

Anvar Akbarov

This is bullshit, I live in Ganja. The missiles were only aimed at the downtown of the city.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VAJaE8Qi2Kc

Arman Melkonyan

We believe you as much as Aliyev and the Azeri government spokesperson who tell us Armenians only kill civilians and no Azeri soldier died yet — and there are no ISIS Muslim terrorists fighting Armenians on the frontlines.

SevenMoons

It is the war, man. All the military men are subject to termination, by all means. Drone and bombs are not prohibited by international laws…..

So do not know what you get to rant about??

Arman Melkonyan

You Turks are really sickening.

You even abducted young Christian boys and trained them to kill their own Christian brothers and sisters.

Absolutely disgusting. And it was the supposedly religious and highly moral Turkish Bektasi Muslim sect that did that.

They were called the janissaires…

khazarian II (return of the me

then gayreek army must stop using aircrafts and drones too. Those gayreeko-armos truly have no braincell

Potato Man

They are not the only dishonorable people during a war, the Zion+Wahhabi+NATO still doing that in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and Yemen.
I remember reading a report about how US killed a whole family in Afghanistan because they thought they saw bin laden, that man and his family died because he was tall like Bin laden btw.
Look at Yemen, US trying to hide itself out of Yemen war but we all know they are bombing Yemenis civilians with Wahhabis.

Iraq: Assassination of Qasem Soleimani by Zion+Wahhabi+NATO.
They are all in the same ship, US help ISIS,Daesh in Syria and Iraq with Wahhabi states.

That how wars gonna be in future.

You’re right.

Everyone does it. Why not do something diplomatically to make this into a war crime instead? Such brutal and inhumane strike but that’s trademark of modern war.

Arman Melkonyan

Both Putin and America/NATO, and the EU and China are kissing Erdogan’s behind. Diplomacy=talk — to who?

Saso Mange

That’s irrelevant, try to apply the same standards to everyone.

LOL, what are you, some knight from the 13th century?

Air strikes are a part of modern warfare, warfare is an ugly business with little to no chivalry involved.

Maybe you guys could settle this with some grease wrestling instead…

Armenians must bomb all SOCAR facilities. Pipes, drilling wells, stock depots and factories.

I think people who will heat their homes with Azeri gas, people and companies who will use electricity from Azeri gas. They care, i am pretty sure they care.

ypovalkanios_katimas

naah, when they will learn that Azeris are anti Greeks and Armenians bombed them will be fine.

Random Dude

How are Azeris anti Greek?

ypovalkanios_katimas

Aliyev told to Greek ambassador that Azeris support Turks in everything.

Random Dude

And supporting Turks means being anti-Greek?

ypovalkanios_katimas

what does it mean? pro Greek?

Random Dude

none. look for example if, Azerbaijan supports Turkish involvement in NATO operations in Afghanistan, was it directed against Greece?
You will need to differentiate between national interests. Whatever Turkey does, is not necessarily against Greece. Some are some are not.
Hence Azerbaijani support for Turkey is not necessarily anti-Greek. And I highly doubt Greece was even considered when those relations were built.

ypovalkanios_katimas

when he said in everything he included also things against greece.

Random Dude

yes and also included things that have nothing to do with Greece.
Asking countries not to support Turkey is a little hypocritical given that Turkey is the main non-EU export partner of Greece. Greece selling products to Turkey means Greece is anti-Greek? Of course not.
I think you are looking way too deep into this. If you see someone do anything specifically against Greece, i would understand. But friend of my enemy concept doesn’t work in geopolitics.

if it had happened exactly the opposite, we would have witnessed vehement reactions from both the “muslim world” and the mainstream western media … “the world would have been shocked” by the atrocities against “honest and humble muslims” and would be categorized as “inhuman” and “islamophobic” … so instead, who gives a fuck to the lives of some poor Armenian Christians!…

Erol

At least these were not civilians like the Armenian Missile attack in Azerbajcan city Gence.
Drones minimize civilian casualities at least. As seen these were not civilians but soldier in the Video.

Porc Halal

I know, but even if happened to military personnel the reaction would have been the same..

Now i understand why armenian president talks about genocide.
TB-2 is literally on genocide mode.
And this is just one leaked by Soldiers, who knows how many like these attacks happened, or are being done.

SevenMoons

Well, you remember Artskin men can father 8 Artskins baby pigs? Here those 20 Artskin men killed could have fathered 160 Artskin babies, and those babies would have fathered another 1,280 Artskin grand babies. Yes, this is Genocide v 2.0!

catalin zt

Goat lover single neuron son of Mohamed the paedophile with residence in Hell you are !

SevenMoons

SF has some odd comments.

This is from inside the Azeri drone control command room. There may be more than one screens to control the drones. This is a daily thing and someone just taped this attack.

The attack is just brutal. It killed like about 20 soldiers. But Artskins only reported 19 men dead.

This is a large drone operation. I’m sure most are commanded by Azeri solders. Sure there can be some Turkish advisors or even Israeli advisors. But most of the drone attacked are conducted by Azeri military.

As I said before, this is the beginning of the second wave. Attack on Artskin personnel. Artskins can’t fight this way. They can only send some snipers to shoot rifles, machine guns and ATGM.

khazarian II (return of the me

Azerbaijan Turks air supremacy paralysis the armenian army and thats a very good example of that armo ww-1 trench tactics doesnt work not at all. Also I dont think Pashinyan’s masters Soros and EU will not come there to help armos.

Lone Ranger

Its called High Treason.
You are right by the way.

Rob Lee, a PhD candidate at University College London, said that the use of TB2s has dramatically affected Armenian forces on the ground and their ability to reinforce and defend themselves.

“TB2s initially targeted air defence systems. The ones we’ve seen destroyed are from the 1980s. I think the radars are struggling to pick up these small UAVs.

“Then, the TB2s started going after tanks, artillery and now, because they’ve been going through a succession of targets of priority, we see them targeting squads of soldiers.”

SevenMoons

Wealthy Azerbaijan’s defence spending has for years dwarfed Armenia’s, allowing it to buy advanced weapons systems, primarily from Russia, Israel and Turkey.

While Russia remains the principal arms supplier to both countries, Israeli and Turkish drones and missile systems risk out-performing Armenia’s often dated Russian hardware.

“Russia realised after 2016 that they had to start equipping Armenia with what they’d been selling Azerbaijan to rebalance the power dynamic,” said Lee.

That includes the Iskander M, a tactical ballistic missile system which has accuracy to within 10 metres (33 feet), a range of up to 500km (311 miles) and is highly effective at avoiding air defences.

So far, it has not been used.

SevenMoons

“The separatist regime is well informed about a country with a population of 10 million people, 70,000 active military personnel and a 300,000 strong reserve army. So, they cannot resist for long.”

SevenMoons

But for now the status quo seems to be in Azerbaijan’s favour, said Lee.

“TB2s are just sitting overhead and waiting for targets of opportunity. Ultimately, Armenians don’t have a good plan for destroying them. They have to do something or Azerbaijan will keep hitting them.”

The Republic of Armenia, which supplies forces in Karabakh with weaponry and conscripts, does possess a limited number of modern Russian “Tor-M2KM” air defence missile systems that are capable of finding and shooting down TB2s.

“Do they want to deploy them to Karabakh from Armenia where they will probably lose some? I’m not sure Armenia is willing to do that yet,” said Lee.

Without an effective defence against Azerbaijan’s apparent air supremacy, the TB2 attacks are likely to continue to take their toll on Armenian manpower and morale.

“You don’t know where the firing is coming from, it’s the invisible enemy,” said Giragosian.

“There’s this sci-fi movie effect. And not only military – the political use of attacks on civilian populations, infrastructure, and the use of cluster bombs as documented by Amnesty International undermines the morale of political leaders. It is psychological warfare attacking the will to fight.”

Sceptic_Observer

I just saw the killing of many civilians and not soldiers, in purpose. This is a war crime and not war.

SevenMoons

The high-resolution footage TB2s have captured of tanks, armoured vehicles, artillery and soldiers eliminated by precision drone strikes may already have provided Azerbaijan with the perception of victory it needs.

“Even if you aren’t succeeding on the battlefield, you can still show strikes, show this to your people and to the international community and say, ‘Look: we have a capable military, don’t mess with us’,” said Lee.

SevenMoons

For now, however, the words of Azerbaijan’s president offer the clearest indication of the country’s intentions.

“They will go to Khankendi (Stepanakert) and reoccupy the whole territory. This is the official statement of the President. Jabrayil district was taken back. So it’s pretty much possible that Azerbaijan can retake control of Khankendi and change the situation rapidly in favour of itself. Azerbaijan has the resources for that, financially and technically. They still have significant resources.”

Armenian Foreign Affairs: We are ready to resume the settlement process, and the solution needs mutual concessions

Now Armenia wants to negotiate to the “best” terms they can. Stupid Armenians. Parshinyan walked away from a possible peace deal with Azerbaijan several years ago. Those stupid and dumb Armenians do not want to give away even a single square inch of Azeri territory to have lasting peace. Now they get nothing.

Only thing they can do now is to cry for help….

Armenia will not be able to sustain so much losses for long….
Now we see Drones attacking Troops because not much of Tanks, APCs etc are left.

Armenia needs some drones. However the Armenians fight like heroes on the ground against ISIS while the Azeris hide like rats.
