Support SouthFront

Three Azerbaijani soldiers were injured in an attack on the military checkpoint near the city of Shusha. According to the joint statement of the Prosecutor General’s Office and the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Azerbaijan, an Armenian citizen threw a grenade towards an Azerbaijani military unit.

The incident took place in early hours on November 13th on the Stepanakert-Lachin road that lays between Nagorno-Karabakh and Armenia. Several people, including an Armenian citizen, who were traveling from Stepanakert to Lachin, near the village of Dashalti threw a grenade on the checkpoint, targeting Azerbaijani soldiers and Russian peacekeepers.

According to the National Security Service of the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, the explosion was carried out in response to the provocative actions of Azerbaijani servicemen. The video of the incident was later released, showing that the Azerbaijanis had not taken any provocative actions.

Following the incident, the Stepanakert-Shushi-Berdzor highway was closed for several hours.

The attacker was later detained by Russian peacekeepers.

According to local media reports, the incident was an act of vengeance.

The attacker was identified as Norayr Mirzoyan, brother of Armenian civilian worker Martik Yeremyan, who was killed near Shushi a few days earlier.

Martik Yeremyan was an employee of an enterprise that provides water supply to Stepanakert and nearby settlements. He was engaged in repairing the pipeline to provide drinking water to the peacekeepers’ checkpoint near Shusha. The civilian works were secured by the Russian peacekeeping contingent and the agreement reached by all the sides of the conflict, but unfortunately, that was not enough.

On November 8th, a member of the special services of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces reportedly approached the team working in a trench, and opened fire without any explanation, killing Martik and wounding three of his colleagues.

November 8th was declared as Victory Day to mark the capture of the strategic city of Shusha by Azerbaijani forces in the recent war in nagorno-Karabakh. The fall of Shusha forced Armenia to accept a Russia-brokered truce two days later.

Those nations like Azeris don’t want Christians like Armenians and Assyrians in those regions. Saddam used to support Armenians and Assyrians despite being a dictator and Assad does the same. Because they were secular. Turkey and Iran were also secular back then but now they have islamized to the core. It is like the previous article. If pan-Islamism unites with ideologies such as pan-Turkism and pan-Iranism, Middle East will be a very hot cocktail.
