IRGC Releases Alleged Photo of Azerbaijani President In Sniper's Sights, Iran Says Presence Of Militants In Karabakh Unacceptable

In a reminder that Iran opposes any further Azerbaijani ambitions in Nagorno-Karabakh and beyond, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) released an interesting photograph.

It shows Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev in the sights of an Iranian sniper, while he was visiting the Khodaafarin bridge at the Karabakh-Iran border.

Earlier, on November 16th, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said that no changes have occurred in Iran’s northwestern borderlines.

This happened in reference to the peace deal between Azerbaijan and Armenia after several weeks of conflict over the Nagorno-Karabakh region near the Iranian borders.

Stating that no change has occurred at the borderlines, he stressed that Iran will never accept anything other than what has been announced by the two sides.

Khatibzadeh added that the corridor that has become controversial these days is simply a transit route, the case of which is closely monitored by the Iranian Foreign Ministry.

He further said that Iran welcomes any peaceful settlement of the case as it did over the past three decades.

He reiterated that no change has occurred at the Iranian borders and will never occur in the future.

According to Iranian Foreign Ministry knowledge, the Syrian militants must have already left the region, the spokesman said that a peaceful settlement of the conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia will benefit the entire region.

The spokesman, however, said Iran will not tolerate presence of any foreign elements in the region.

About killing of Iranian border guards in northwest of the country, Khatibzadeh said Iran’s response to such measures is strong.

A senior advisor to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says there is no place for Syrian militants close to Iran’s northern borders.

“There is no place for Wahhabi and Takfiri terrorists among people of Azerbaijan who are known for their love for Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)’s progeny, and track records of such groups are very bleak,” Ali Akbar Velayati said in an address to a webinar held to discuss Ayatollah Khamenei’s views on the Karabakh region. “The people of Azerbaijan are capable of liberating their land and the presence of Wahhabi terrorists in north of Iran’s borders [with Azerbaijan] will be fruitless.”

Ah the good ol Dragunov SVD, best DMR ever produced.


long range 334 lapua is better. no offence.. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/cef39a8d4ede7ae1d0091ae25cb7d338c75022ab6354efa50ac5fa0a057f345e.jpg

But thats a bolt action sniper rifle not a semi auto DMR. The Dragunov SVD is the only DMR rifle with sniper rifle level accuracy, it matches the M24, has a 10 round magazine and has AK level reliabilty. No offense ?


?i shot with Dragunov, mate. and i know we can do. i also fired on 8,58 mm lapua magnum rifle…

Its early dragunov that had rivalling m24 accuracy but after they want it to be able to shoot b32 API ammo the accuracy downgraded a bit because new rifling need used more specialized ammo that not as common as the old one

Toni Liu

They already had dragunov in 9.3x64mm and I ever saw the dragunov successor had 338 lapua so it just matter of choice

Assad must stay

he should have taken the shot ahahahaha

Some Wahhabi-Zion-Azer shithead killed IRGC soldiers which Iran later shelled Azer. “Three border guards killed in clashes with terrorists in NW Iran” https://www.presstv.com/Detail/2020/11/14/638554/Iranian-border-guards-terrorists-Targavar-West-Azerbaijan-Province “IRGC fires artillery on terrorist positions across Iran’s northwest border” https://www.presstv.com/Detail/2020/11/15/638619/Iran-IRGC-artillery-terrorists

It’s been “about to fall” since, oh, 1978.

Free man

The time of the IRGC will also come soon. Apparently the Mullahs regime is tired of the Azeri territories they control.


Frankly, you are an Iran obsessed troll. Get a life will ya!

Free man

Frankly, LOL.

That prat looks even more of a prat through a sniper sight. Any politician that puts on a military uniform looks like an idiot. Granted that few can match up to the gibbering globetrotting genocidal Gujarati gangster Narendrabhai Damodardasbhai Modi in that regard. Just look at this creature: https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/363e9811709a5a2f6ffec9be522750f1fae6c7f1b244b16d01c1ac214351db7e.jpg
