On October 7 and 8, the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan and the country’s media released several videos showing recent strikes on Armenian forces in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh.
The videos show more than ten strikes on Armenian military vehicles, including T-72 battle tanks and 2S3 Akatsiya self-propelled howitzers.
The strikes seen in the videos were likely carried out with Turkish-made Bayraktar TB2 combat drones and Israeli-made Harop and SkyStriker loitering munitions.
The Azerbaijani MoD’s videos also show heavy rocket strikes on vehicles and positions of Armenian forces in Nagorno-Karabakh.

Despite the heavy and accurate fire power of Azerbaijani forces, Armenian troops are still holding onto their positions in Nagorno-Karabakh. Furthermore, Armenian troops carried out successful counter-attacks in the region over the last 48 hours.
The battle in Nagorno-Karabakh, which broke out on September 27, does not appear to be nearing its end. Azerbaijan and Armenian are still unwilling to cease military operations in the region.
