The Nagorno-Karabakh war has apparently been developing in the favor of the Turkish-Azerbaijani bloc. On the evening of October 29, the Armenian side confirmed that Azerbaijani troops have almost reached the second largest town in Nagorno-Karabakh – Shusha, which is located just a few km from the capital of the self-proclaimed republic – Stepanakert. Arayik Harutyunyan, the president of the republic, called on Armenians to take arms to defend their homeland.

“Shusha is not just a town, it is the symbol of the determination of the Armenian people to live in their own cradle, a symbol of the victories of the Armenian people. Shusha is the beating heart of all Armenians. As the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of Artsakh, I once again call on each and every one of you to unite and defend our Shusha, our Artsakh, our national dignity,” he said.

Azerbaijani infantry reportedly outflanked defense positions of the Armenians near Hadrut and deployed about 5km from Shusha. The presence of forward units of Azerbaijani forces in such an area is another signal of the hard situation on the frontline for Armenian forces. While the Armenians have likely been able to repel the first Azerbaijani push towards the Lachin corridor, near the border with Armenia, the advancing Azerbaijani troops are still a major problem for the defenders of Karabakh on other parts of the frontline.

The Defense Ministry of the Republic of Artsakh confirmed clashes south of Shusha saying that Armenian units have been working to eliminate enemy sabotage groups. This official version of events sounds at least concerning for the defenders of the city. Independent Armenian sources report intense fighting between Armenian and Azerbaijani forces south of the town. If the Armenians lose Shusha, this will mean that Azerbaijani forces are at the gates of the Nagorno-Karabakh capital.

Meanwhile, the Armenian Defense Ministry released its own map of the situation on the frontline. According to it, the Azerbaijani military is still far away from Shusha. Furthermore, it shows that Hadrut still mysteriously remains in the hands of Armenians forces. At the same time, the Armenian conter-attack on Qubdali that forced the Azerbaijani military to withdraw from the town turning it into a gray zone was underreported. The Armenians also denied the shooting down of two of its Su-25 warplanes claimed by the Azerbaijani military. According to Azerbaijan these warplanes “attempted to inflict airstrikes on the positions of the Azerbaijani Army in the Qubadli direction of the front” and were shot down. No visual evidence to confirm the shooting down of the Su-25s has been provided so far.

On the other hand, the Azerbaijani side released a series of videos showing successful strikes on Armenian forces in the contested region. The strikes seen in the videos targeted more than 27 posts and gatherings of Armenian troops as well as the following equipment: 5 D-20 howitzers, a D-30 howitzer, 2 2S1 Gvozdika self-propelled howitzers, a BM-21 multiple rocket launcher, 2 trucks, a SUV, a P-18 Radar and a Communication center. Most of the strikes seen in the videos were carried out with Turkish-made Bayraktar TB2 combat drones. The rest were apparently carried out with precision-guided rockets, like the Israeli-made ACCULAR and EXTRA, which are known to be in service with the Azerbaijani military.

By the end of October, the Turkish-Azerbaijani bloc has surely seized the strategic initiative in the conflict and overcome Armenian attempts to recapture it. Now, Baku with help from its Turkish allies are planning to deliver the devastating blow to the Armenian defenders of Karabakh. At the same time, the leadership of Armenia is still playing diplomatic games and not hurrying up to send its regular troops to assist the self-proclaimed Republic of Nagorno-Karabakh.

As a NATO member TURKEY seems to be Exporting TERRORIST …SYRIA , LIBYA , AZERBAIJAN , be careful NATO

Random Dude

ok. we will let them know

NAZIO now.

Azerbaijani infantry reportedly outflanked defense positions of the Armenians near Hadrut and deployed about 5km from Shusha.

In this spring 2020, Nikol Pashinyan fired from general stuff all officers who studied in Russia and USSR. Looks like it works.

Kohlhaas

Pashinyan is undercover agent, trained in Turkey. His real name is Paşa İnan.

Great Khan

Pasha mean Khan,,,,but Pashinyan not even baby Khan hahahhahaa

Anna24

Russian sexy girls -> https://cutt.ly/ugUxpHY

Porc Halal

Hahaha!…Anna, you have picked up the wrong guy…he is interested in goats, sheep, mules and…..yes, camels!…

Harry Smith

Pashinyan is Soros bitch. USA needs any unrest in vicinities of Russia, Iran and China. Armenia and Kyrgyzstan are very good points for some military conflict to suck out some resources from the countries mentioned before. Armenians and Kyrgyzs are perfect for role of kamikaze. Useful idiots that are ready to sacrifice future of their children in favor of adding several months to agony of USA.

Kohlhaas

I know dude.
It’s just a joke we have in Turkey. It started when some people on the internet troll the rtard islamists who think Ataturk was an Jewish agent. They posted fake stories claiming Ataturk’s real name was Yossi Cohen :D Then this joke made its peak when a lunatic “historian” claimed (seriously!) Shakespeare was Turk and his real name was Şeyh Pir.

Harry Smith

Greetings from Russia bro. The brainwashing UK-USA machine uses the same algorithm. They make a nation to believe that nation is the chosen one, first. Then they make nation fight their enemies, because nation is “chosen” and everyone in the World must give the “chosen nation” whatever this nation wants.
IE Ukrainian nazis believe that their ancestors were Sumers and that all languages in the world are based on Ukrainian language.
But the most adorable moment with Turkish Islamistic nazis, that there is recognized Hadith that says if any Muslim will say he belongs to a tribe, he must go and bite his fathers penis. A fiasco for great Turan followers.

Kohlhaas

Greetings friend.
Armenians have the exact “chosen nation syndrome” you are talking about. They are spoiled by the west for many years, this created an illusion in which they see themselves much more powerful than they actually are. But the day has come and their power had tested… they are nothing without other countries. But they still believe that world owe them something, they deserve to be helped because for what? They are the “innocent oppressed Christians”? lol
Because of the same illusion they stayed undeveloped after all these years, their national goal is to grab lands from Turkey, Az and Georiga… but they don’t realize that you can take a land only with blood.

I am sure being at the opposite side of this equation helps you (and me) to realize this reality. I mean… Russians and Turks do not liked a lot you know… haha

Harry Smith

Even more. I were born and grown at the north west of Black See and never thought I would be at the same side with Turks. You know how much Turks are hated in that region.

Kohlhaas

Why do they hate though? Just curious.

Harry Smith

Historical memories. A lot of people were oppressed and even killed by Turks. Also Turks took young boys for Janissaries. And so on.

Satellitte

yes it was a empire back then.Janissaries slave soldier from Slavic and Greek land were the best.

Harry Smith

Wrong. I am from the territory mostly populated by Romanians. And they are latin.

Satellitte

well you Romanian you are not very far being a Slavic ahhaahah.

Harry Smith

I am Russian. Romanians are not slavic. At least they are mix of Thracians and Italians (Italia – initial region around the Rome, not all the peninsula)

Kohlhaas

Btw. I never heard this biting penis thing before, but it seems interesting, really. There is the same theme in Hittite myths (I think from Hittites it also passed to Greeks, Kronos cutting Uranus’ penis). I wonder if there is any connected between…

Kohlhaas

I am no muslim myself, but hadits are no more than fairy tales. I wouldn’t use it to degrade Islam while there are many places you can hit better.

Harry Smith

I am not Muslim neither, but try to study Islam. At my point even Sunna is kinda Arabic tribal tradition. But I am not a Muslim scholar to teach Muslims and even to say my opinion. I am orthodox Christian.

Rhodium 10

AZ infantery have been defeated in all front when they have to fight face to face vs NK forces rifle on hands…especially in Rugged terrain and forest Mountains…..AZ cannot move vehicles to Shusha because ATGM teams wipe off them!…

Erol

Hmh ok, So to your analysis….
Will Armenia win this war?
How long it will take for Armenians to regain lost areas?

Rhodium 10

What areas?… only the south…the lachin corridor is open, the East, West and North are under NK control!

Erol

But if Azeri Infantry can be easily defeated (as you made clear also on other posts) why should Armenians not take it back?
So what you think?
How long it will take for the Armenians to win this war?

Rhodium 10

They dont need to retake the south…they are expecting that AZ fail to retake the capital like they failed in North and East…for Armenia it would means a victory while for AZ would mean a fiasco!

Erol

So loosing 1/3 of Karabagh would be a win for Armenia,
but a lost for Azerbaidschan which had zero one month ago???

Jihadi Colin

Muhammad Saeed al Sahhaf, is that you?

Rhodium 10

It is diferent..then Iraq was under UN embargo, Soviet Union was collapses, US military had to bribe some republican guard comanders….the NK question is not about lands claims…it is about That Turkey ( NATO) and Israel ( Mossad) want bases in AZ/NK in exchange for help..now F-16 are deployed there it is to say the Caspian sea..and Israel will receive his Gift( a Mossad base to desestabilize Iran and recruit Etnic Irani-AZ).. for supplying modern drones, Missile and intel…while both Russia and Iran are supplying weapons to Armenia and the AZ infantery remain useless to fight vs NK infantery… therefore AZ&Partners cannot retake all NK.

Jihadi Colin

Azeri infantry doesn’t need to fight Nagorno Karabakh infantry, they just need to keep Nagorno Karabakh infantry fixed in position to be annihilated by Ottoman drones. That’s the ensure strategy from the start and it’s been extremely effective.

Rhodium 10

No so extreme when they are unable to advance from South to center NK..

Jihadi Colin

They’re already much further than I anticipated if even the Armenians admit Shusha is threatened. I had expected them to stick to the Lachin corridor but, probably taking advantage of the Armenians concentrating forces to defend it, they’ve gone for the jugular. Now if Armenia strips Lachin to defend Shusha the Azeris will strike for Lachin again. Either way Nagorno Karabakh is finished.

Great Khan

hahhaahha he live in Dubai with Arap, maybe dead now…..

Valery Grigoryev

Wishful thinking

Harry Smith

To be honest, mountain terrain is real challenge for Azeri troops. But I won’t be so optimistic about perspectives of NK forces. Most videos with NK troops attacked by Azeris drones show lack of elementary military knowledge of the NK field officers and absence of experience for all military personnel.

Great Khan

Azeri brother STRONK! soon Khankendi Azeri city again….Armeni donkey kaputen heimer…hahahhhaa

That’s what I was asking you in the other comment, to give me concrete examples of what he did to be considered traitor.

Harry Smith

Not only. Pashinyan stopped any contacts between Russian and Armenian intelligences about year ago.

Which is, time… they studied special relativity well.

No no its fake. Azerbaijani Special Photo Forces enter take photos and run away. Or its a newly built fake town near Baku

“Who says that they’re at the gates of Shusha? Indeed we are at the gates of Baku. They are committing suicide in their thousands before Shusha. Soon, we will win!”

You seem to favor the Turks in this and mock the Armenians pretty much consistently. Doesn’t sound like a ‘neutral’ to me.

You seem to be unable to read what I write. Doesn’t seem to be literate to me.

clean job…looks like armenians evacuated civilians first…and they kept the clashes out of the town…maybe they dream of returning to their home one day…who knows?…

Random Dude

Its just small special forces groups with tourist visa walking around. Great Armenian warrior remains undefeatable, Ohanian defense line unpenetrated, lost equipment are mock up, photos are fake. And Azerbaijan army lost as many drones as Israel and Turkey have combined, all armored vehicles, 8million troops.
Ever wondered by most Armenians genetically have big noses?

Robin alvarez

Wait so let me get this straight armenia hasn’t sent their units in officially?
Why did he say armenia hasn’t yet sent their best troops at the of the video? I thought all those dying from those drone strikes were from the official armenian army?

Kohlhaas

Some of them are and some of them “aren’t” (from Artsakh Republic). Why are you surprised? Even Armenia does not officially recognize them.

CGTN is giving a lot of coverage to Jew maggots this is what the Nagorno-Karabakh made of, that’s where the Azerbaijan aggression is coming from -Joe Biden’s expected victory.

A new fluid front line will be used as a pretext for UN discussion Azerbaijan positions will be endorsed by China and Biden as a trade off to Brother Erdogan – hopelessly misguided on this conflict, – in return for Turkey and Qatar betraying Syria and the Palestinians
while moving towards conceding to Israeli legitimacy in a practical sense, China can’t understand anything except finance, and Jew maggots are now capable of controlling the CCP.

What else can anyone expect except abject failure, with the homosexual Sid Loder’s donation of the Holy Ghost to the maggot Jews being upheld by everyone.

Stev60

It’s Trump’s camp that is silent on this war (toilet-paper ‘ceasefire’ aside), while Biden actually says the US should be more active in stopping it and Turkic aggression: https://www.breitbart.com/2020-election/2020/10/14/biden-trump-must-get-more-involved-armenia-azerbaijan-war/

https://joebiden.com/2020/10/13/nagorno-karabakh-statement-by-vice-president-joe-biden/

Rodney Loder

Same as Korea, trust Trump not to jump, Biden will pull down MbS because of Khashoggi so it’s a win win in my opinion, but Trump is guaranteed Biden is a complete surrogate for the Bilderberg Group they want a piece of Eurasia and the US is not that important anymore, China will be the Israeli big brother economically and like Hafter mercenaries will be used to protect Israel.

Trump’s got Jew relations with Kushner but Trump is a realist Biden is controlled by the NSA, the bigger threat with his victory will come from Chinese hegemony via the Chinese Eurasian Belt and Road, the IMF is 100% committed, Putin did a great job in Syria probably only because IS smashed al-Nusra and Obama was caught off balance supporting Baghdadi who broke with Obama and started executing Westerners, Baghdadi doesn’t believe al-Wahabb was a legitimate part of Salafism, Baghdadi is still alive living in Israel he made a deal to operate in the shadows but doesn’t give orders any more.

And nobody wants the US protecting Armenia or Turkey supporting Azerbaijan unless they have ulterior motives, I support Armenia because God told me too, Putin is saying he’s willing to swap some Nagorno-Karabakh territory adjacent to Azerbaijan for a Nagorno-Karabakh corridor into Armenia I got my confidants in Heaven thinking about it.

Stev60

Like I said elsewhere, even at the worst, NK should only lose some outlying bits, of no real import to Armenia/ns, and all connecting land between it and Armenia should stay Armenian, plus, Turkey should cede Ararat. Azerbaijan should get at most the southern plain section it has taken more or less (excluding Lachin), and a few other bits. But ideally not even that – only Ararat would maybe make it worthwhile – and is more than justified, many times over.

Rodney Loder

Agree with all of that, Armenia remaining viable is the necessary constituent of this trial, one thing the war has shown is the importance of drone and artillery fire power, tanks and infantry might need new strategies, AI can probably help.

Also the Bolivia political situation is in tune with new rules coming into effect demanded by the new era of the declining old guard, Britain France and the US, Turkey is the key to opposing Sisi, KSA and UAE forming up with Israel and the Kurds to dominate Arab affairs for the next half century, none of this was planned just the way it worked out.

Ivan Freely

China will be the Israeli big brother economically and like Hafter mercenaries will be used to protect Israel

I’ll believe it when I see it. I honestly can’t see China willing to fight for Israel like what the US have done.

Rodney Loder

That’s why I said economic big brother, at the moment it’s the other way around, IMF, World Bank and Bank of International Settlements are looked up to because China was accepted into the basket of currencies joining SWIFT, WTO and SDR ($ €£Japanese Yen and Chinese renminbi) as you know I hope the IMF, the WB and Bank of International Settlements are all Jew maggot organisations, a historical left oner from collecting taxes for the Romans.

The US won’t want to fight for Israel either the only reason they have said they would up till now is because the homosexual Sid Loder had them believing that eventually I would be the Israeli Redeemer, how could that be when I wasn’t born when the maggots came back led by Ben Gurion a Hitler supporter.

That’s what God was waiting for, to catch the liars out so I got born two years and 4 months after Stalin recognised Israel

Rhodium 10

Most of the equipment destroyed are artillery D-30 and Ural trucks…cheap and easy to replace…10 Harop drones shot down by NK cost 100M…with that money you can buy 2000 D-30 Hozwitzer!

Mr T

ok right

Erol

So Armenia will win?

Rhodium 10

Better ask…Will AZ be able to retake NK or just only the south?…

Erol

Even this would be a win…
One month ago zero, today 1/3 of Karabagh.
And Armenia hugely weakened for future….
Not a full win but also not a lost!

Porc Halal

I think the redneck turks will only be able to temporarily take the south…temporarily…

Meanwhile Armenian “volunteers” are “training” with wooden guns. Maybe they’ll kill Azeris with splinters when the latter get close enough.

Until then they’ll fight with their keyboards.

the modest gains by Azeris regard flat territory where drones are more deadly. if history is a guide then in the mountains Armenians will adapt with guerrilla tactics and replicate the result in 1994. Although it is difficult for me to support armenians—xenophobic and spiteful people

Stev60

Ataturk-Hitler-Stalin – Who remembers the Armenians?

Erdogan-NAZIO-RuSSia – Who remembers Artsakh?

God-Justice-Truth – We do, and we won’t forget those who betrayed, crucified, and genocided the Armenians, ever, the First Christian Nation.

It looks like N-K has been Christian and Armenian for most of the past 1,500 years. My view is that the Azeris should end their claim to it in exchange for the return of the surrounding districts siezed and annexed as a buffer zone in previous conflicts.
