On September 28th, and coming into September 29th, the clashes for the Nagorno-Karabakh region continue.
The fighting continues on the morning of September 29th with varying intensity, a video was published by the Armenian Ministry of Defense purportedly showing Azerbaijani positions being attacked.
The Ministry of Defense of Armenia stated that in 2 days Azerbaijan lost 370 soldiers and many times more wounded.
Azerbaijan claimed hundreds of killed Armenian soldiers and dozens of destroyed pieces of equipment. As many as 450 were reported killed yesterday.It is believed that both sides underestimate their losses and inflate the losses of their opponents. Military hardware can only be judged by what is confirmed by photos and videos.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan again stated that Armenia should withdraw its troops from Karabakh and surrender it to Azerbaijan. Turkey continues to insist on its own, already traditionally trying to blackmail opponents by force. But as the example of Libya or Syria shows, where Turkey receives a serious rebuff, all Turkish pathos is quickly deflated.
Just as Erdogan now rejects any negotiations on Karabakh, he rejected any negotiations on Libya until Sirte was given to him. As a result, Sirte was not given to Erdogan, and Turkey is now increasingly talking about negotiations, since it has failed to intimidate opponents.
