The strikes were apparently carried out by Turkish-made Bayraktar TB2 combat drones, which entered service with the Azerbaijani military in June.
The Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan also shared a video documenting some of the weapons and equipment, which were recently seized from Armenian forces. The video shows a number of military trucks and load of ammunition.
Azerbaijani forces maintain a slow, but steady advance in Nagorno-Karabakh. Earlier today, the forces captured the historical Khudaferin Bridge on Iran’s border, despite fierce resistance from Armenian troops.
