Azerbaijani Military Shelled Civilian Areas In Nagorno-Karabakh With Israeli Cluster Rockets (Photos)


The Azerbaijani Armed Forces are reportedly using Israeli-made cluster rockets to target civilian settlements in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh.

On October 3, the Armenian Unified Infocenter shared photos showing the remains of Israeli-made M095 submunitions found in a civilian settlement that was the target of an Azerbaijani rocket strike.

According to the Infocenter, the Azerbaijani Armed Forces carried out the strike using a LAR-160 multiple rocket launch system (MRLS).

Developed by the Israel Military Industries in the 1970s, the LAR-160 fires 160 mm rockets with a minimum range of 12 km and a maximum range of 45 km.

At least 30 LAR-160 MRLS are reportedly in active service with the Azerbaijani Armed Forces. The Azerbaijani systems are apparently armed with Mk. II cluster rockets, which are known to carry M095 submunitions.

The Azerbaijani attack on Nagorno-Karabakh, which began on September 27, has so far claimed the lives of at least 14 Armenian civilians. More than 60 others were reportedly injured.

Israeli weapons are being used by Azerbaijani forces on a daily basis. A day earlier, an Israeli-made LORA theater quasi-ballistic missile struck a bridge linking Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh near the village of Asagi Sus.
