On October 14, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry announced that its forces had conducted strikes on Armenian operational-tactical ballistic missile systems in the Armenian border area, near the Kalbajar District of the contested Nagorno-Karabakh region.

The Azerbaijani military claimed that the destroyed missiles “were targeted at Ganja, Mingachevir and other cities of Azerbaijan to inflict casualties among the peaceful population and to destroy civilian infrastructure.”

The Armenian Defense Ministry confirmed the strikes denying any casualties and threatening Azerbaijan with retaliatory strikes on military targets inside the country. “From now on, the Armed Forces of Armenia reserve the right to attack any military object or military movement in Azerbaijan. The military-political leadership of Azerbaijan bears full responsibility for the process of changing the logic of the combat actions,” the defense ministry spokesperson said.

Also, Armenia claimed that it had shot down an Azerbaijani Su-25 warplane. This was the second warplane of this type claimed to have been shot down by Armenia in recent days. In both cases, no evidence to confirm the claims was provided.

According to both Armenian and Azerbaijani sources intense clashes and artillery duels have been ongoing in the northern and southern parts of Karabakh.

On October 13, the Azerbaijani military released their own video from the surroundings of the town of Hadrut in the Nagorno-Karabakh region claiming control over the town.

Earlier, Armenian sources and journalists working on the Armenian side released several videos from the same area claiming that the town is in the hands of Armenian forces. This situation goes contrary to the official stance of the Azerbaijani leadership. According to the official version, the town was captured by Azerbaijan several days ago.

Nonetheless, the issue with the new Azerbaijani proof from Hadrut is that the video was in fact filmed in the village of Tagaser, which is located west of the town. Thus, in the best case for Azerbaijani forces the town of Hadrut is now contested, and in the worst case it is in the hands of Armenian forces. This is a major blow to the official Azerbaijani propaganda that keeps claiming at the highest level that the town has been ‘liberated from Armenian occupiers’.

On the other hand, the potential military success of Azerbaijan on this part of the frontline could easily lead to the collapse of the Armenian defense near the town of Fizuli and its subsequent loss to Azerbaijani forces. This is a desired outcome for Azerbaijan. Thus, its military will continue its advance in the area despite public claims about its supposed commitment to the October 10 ceasefire regime with only retaliatory actions to Armenian violations.

In fact, the fate of the entire ceasefire is now being determined in the Haradut area. If Azerbaijan fully captures the town, it will likely try to develop momentum thus publicly resuming full-scale offensive operations. If the Azerbaijani side fails to do so, the Armenian-Azerbaijani confrontation will likely continue in a form of a positional standoff with intense use of artillery, air power (mostly by Azerbaijan) and sporadic firefights on the frontline. Meanwhile, Ankara and Baku will evaluate their position and consider their chances in the event of further attacks in the current format.

Oh god, her voice is the most annoying I’ve heard in 2020.

Dicksonrp

Armenia bit the Russian hand that fed her and spit in the Russians face. They bended over for the gay Americans and thumbed Putins face. I hope Putin don’t lift a finger to help them, agreement or none…

farbat

wrong russia plays with the globalists on this one here

farbat

russias plan is to have a genocide in armenia

farbat

russia seeks to eradicate azerbaijan and turkey for that it needs a genocide to happen and iam not even kidding its ugly and its going on

The Objective

Turkey will get nukes soon. All it’ll take for a perfect excuse is for Turkey to be severely threatened by a nuclear power like Russia. Then all bets are off.

farbat

globalists seek to push iran on turkeys side against russia to weaken russia enough to balkanize it afterwards but iran again doesnt play their games and instead does what it does so russia is even more sure about taking turkey out but i wonder if any of these things might happen because iran is used to annoy the global arrogance plans

The Objective

Iran won’t be much use to Russia for long. The US will soon bring Iran to it’s knees. All it’ll take is destroy the Iranian militias in Lebanon and Iraq. This should severely weaken Assad and Iran. Then America hands Afghanistan to Taliban and let the deal with the Iranian militias in Afghanistan and parts of Pakistan. further squeeze Iran’s economy, support the opposition and organize more nationwide protests. Four more years of maximum pressure and this regime will capitulate or fall.
Turkey will keep out of this US-iran war cos it doesn’t concern Turkey. Iran is actually no use to Turkey. It’s even more of a threat.

farbat

if thinks work out like they planned than turkey will kill 10000s armenians itself with its mercs eventually and it will push into north caucasus region and start engaging in war with russias assets in chechen and dagestan area only for turkey to be completely leveled

farbat

putin is some cold hearted creature he should be shot in the face that disgusting imp is totally on plan for the golden billion plan which means that alot of people are planned to die and he is a globalist plaything meanwhile

farbat

turkey on its part should have been destroyed long ago but its still around since turkey is kind of useful for many parties because its a thorn in the side of the west

Assad must stay

What u talking about? Why does russia have troops in Armenia then

Jihadi Colin

Azerbaijan: We hit the targets within Armenia
Armenia: Azerbaijan hit the targets within Armenia
Russia: We need to investigate if Azerbaijan hit targets in Armenia

“Armenian border area, near the Kalbajar District of the contested Nagorno-Karabakh region.”

How this is “inside Armenia” is beyond me.

Random Dude

Armenia has a border with Nagorno Karabakh of Azerbaijan. And the names of Azerbaijani (NK) regions bornering are Kalbajar, Gubadly, Zengilan, Lachin. So it was in Armenian territory but close to Kalbajar. To explain easier, see the location.

farbat

you are so stupid you turks will be slaughtered like animals at the end of this you dont understand a thing about the world

farbat

go on slaughter armenians because this is exactly what shall be happening to you and be sure of it all of “turks” will be slaughtered that is pretty much the globalists plan

farbat

such aggression isnt seen as great around the world in fact its seen as aggression and animalism and most people will look with hatred at turkey in near future that is the cost of such aggressions but you shall find out yourself soon enough

farbat

even if the bad guy is stronger and lies more he is still the bad guy in peoples eyes dont forget that your actions talk more than any of your words and eventually the outcome might be utter ruin

iGold

The Armenian and Artsakh armies were easily slaughtered by the Azeris.

farbat

you are an idiot

iGold

Only fools believe Armenian propaganda and lies.

murat

True that! How did Turks kill 1.5 mil Armos in 1915 when archives showing Armos popluation at 1.2 mil?

farbat

i repeat what i said before the plan of the globalists or the global arrogance such as we call it is for turkey to create a genocide in armenia

farbat

the globalists seek to eradicate turkey and for that they need a turkey with extremely bloodsoiled hands

farbat

worry about problems in dagestan and chechen area of russia because the plan is for turks to send mercs there and “slaughter people easily”such as you say only for turkey to be utterly leveled in return and meanwhile west has to figure out a way to kick turkey from nato and isolate it

farbat

turkey is about to make pop soon and after that there will be no more turkey because the turks are the foolish tools of globalism even if they dont know it they fall for all their mistakes put infront of them and they dont even consider how it would look like around the world when they do these things and if you think that talking about slaughtering people makes you look great than you are wrong people increasingly look at you people as another greater daesh

The Objective

Your anger is that Turkey is standing up firm for Muslims

farbat

globalists seek to establish armenia as the center of governance for the christian world and for that they need you slaughter christians which you do like the puppets you are and soon all of christianity will look to armenia as extremely important and look with hatred at turkey

Zaphod Braden

Those S300 & S400 don’t seem to work very well …. they keep getting blown up.

Karabakh Ministry of Defense: 49 more of our forces were killed while responding to Azerbaijani attacks..

Armenian Attorney General office: as result of Azerbaijani strike on military equipment in Vardenis district of Armenia on 14th October 2 Armenian soldiers were killed and 10 injured

“…the issue with the new Azerbaijani proof from Hadrut is that the video was in fact filmed in the village of Tagaser, which is located west of the town.”

Wouldn’t that mean that the town is now at least partially cut off and surrounded?
