Large Iranian Armored Unit Spotted Moving Towards Nagorno-Karabakh Border (Photos, Video)

Support SouthFront

Iran has deployed additional military reinforcement along its border with the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh, where a fierce battle between Azerbaijani and Armenian forces has been ongoing for more than a month now.

Several units of the Iranian Armed Froces’ 116th Brigade were sent on November 5 from Qazvin in northern Iran to the border region.

The Iranian Labour News Agency released photos of the reinforcements, which included a number of Chieftain battle tanks and M113 armored personnel carriers.

Last month, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) deployed reinforcements, including air defense systems, on the border with Nagorno-Karabakh after a series of stray fire accidents.

Back then, IRGC’Ground Force Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpoor said reinforcements were deployed to protect Iran’s national interests as well as to provide security and safety for civilians in the border area.

Initially, Iran took a neutral stand on the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh, calling on both Armenia and Azerbaijan to de-escalate and engage in talks.

This policy changed two days ago when Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei backed Azerbaijan’s right to “liberate” the region. The leader, however, criticized the deployed of Syrian mercenaries there.

“Azerbaijan has the right to liberate its occupied territories and international borders must be respected, and terrorists should not be present near [Iran’s] borders,” he said in a speech marking the birth of the Prophet Muhammad.

The change in Iran’s stand was likely the result of pressure from the country’s Azeri population and the recent advance of Azerbaijani troops, which captured Nagorno-Karabakh border with Iran.

Despite voicing support for Azerbaijan, Tehran is still calling on Baku and Yerevan to reach a political settlement and end the military conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh.

Should have done it when the war started. It is only natural to reinforce borders when two neighbors are at war.

Black Waters

No, there must be another reason for this. As potato man said, i agree with what he said. Those extremists have to go, im not talking about azerbaijan military, but the creatures that Turkey deployed there.

Random Dude

Too far fetched of an assumption. If that would be the reason, Iran would just ask Azerbaijan about explanation on this. No diplomatic communication was done on this. Just border reinforcement it is.

Potato Man

Iran want none of NATO “Freedom fighters” near their border.
Turk-Zion-Azer can’t hold their Wahhabi Sunnis shi7heads, as we seen how useless Azer troops are on ground they (Wahhabi) might fuk Azer troops and run freely in N-K.

Yes, Iranian made Volvo.

Free man

Azerbaijan has no intention of harming Iran. But if Iran attacks, it will be a good opportunity to liberate the Azerbaijani-controlled territories by the mullahs.

Concrete Mike

dream on nutcase.

Free man

The Azerbaijani army is currently busy in Nagorno-Karabakh. But in the future there will be enough time to liberate the occupied lands.

Ashok Varma

You are a insane troll.

Free man

No matter how much you cry and rage the Azeri lands will be liberated.
What interest does an “Indian” like you have in Azerbaijan? Or are you an Iranian again today?

Rhodium 10

Iran and Russia are not Naive….In Syria both Turkey&Israel are the main supporters of the Wahabi terrorists..Quneitra/Dara in the south close to Israel..and Idlib in north close to Turkey!..both use to attack SAA and supply weapons to terrorist and provide medical cares!…they want to repeat the Syrian scenario in NK…it is to fill with terrorist ( Syrians, Uzbek, Chechens, Uygour, Daguestani) that area which the purpose to destabilize Russia ( Caucasus, Caspian) and Iran( to promote somekind of Independent Irani province with a majority of Azerí population…Aliyev is just a Turkish puppet and AZ armed forces is less efective than Pancho Villa army…in fact it is a war with Israel forces on air ( Harop drones,Spike NLOS, Orbiter, Loran) and Turkish special forces advisors and Syrian Terrorist on ground….

Arman Melkonyan

Fuck the depraved Muslim Iranian dogs. Millions of them are Azeris.

What a race of inbred morons, these Persians.

The Iranians gave up their civilized and relatively sophisticated religion, Zoroastrianism, and adopted the barbarous Islamic religion of the depraved barbaric Arabs who conquered and raped and enslaved the stupid Iranians.

You are filth, Iranians.

Go suck the Azeri Turks’ balls who sold you to the Israeli Jews.

Ashok Varma

Why are you angry at Iran when Armenians have brought this upon themselves by ignoring world opinion.? Even India does not support the illegal occupation of Karabakh.

Arman Melkonyan

Artsakh/Nagorno Karabakh is not Azeri land even according to the UN’s own rules and principles.

United Nations General Assembly Resolution 1514 (XV), 14 December 1960…

2. All peoples have the right to self-determination; by virtue of that right they freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development…

4. All armed action or repressive measures of all kinds directed against dependent peoples shall cease…

5. Immediate steps shall be taken… to transfer all powers to the peoples of those territories, without any conditions or reservations, in accordance with their freely expressed will and desire, without any distinction as to race, creed or colour, in order to enable them to enjoy complete independence and freedom.

Only administrative control of the *autonomous* enclave of Artsakh was “gifted” to Azerbaijan (itself a non-independent republic of USSR) in 1923 by the dictator Stalin.

Armenians populated Artsakh thousands of years before Turks invaded the Caucasuses and Armenia.  The population was still 85 percent Armenian even after 70 years of Azeri oppression and attempted ethnic cleansing when the war started in 1991.

Artsakh was *never* part of an independent sovereign country of Azerbaijan.  It was part of the USSR.  Azerbaijan itself only existed between 1918-1920 only to reappear again after the dismantling of the Soviet Union 1991.  Therefore the Azeris have no right to claim it as their own land.

Azeri civilians backed and led by their government institutions raped and tortured to death hundreds of Armenians in Baku and Sumgait between 1988-1990.  Thousands of Armenians were forced to flee from their homes in Baku and Sumgait, that’s genocide.

And what unbelievable chutzpah and hatred on the part of the Jews selling HAROP terror drones and illegal weapons like cluster bombs and LORA ballistic missiles to the Azeris whilst denying the genocide of the first Christian nation of the world, the Armenians!

The hatred of the Jews for the Armenians is ancient.  The Khazars tried to invade and subjugate Armenia for centuries but failed, losing instead their own land and infiltrating Eastern Europe after adopting Judaism: http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/4279-chazars

The Donmeh Jews organized and committed the Armenian genocide with their Turkish partners: https://russia-insider.com/en/history/real-holocaust-1915-armenian-genocide-and-its-russophobic-origins/ri22877

https://www.timesofisrael.com/before-the-holocaust-ottoman-jews-supported-the-armenian-genocides-architect/

Even the laws of the Soviet Union gave the right to secede from Azerbaijan to the majority Armenian population of Artsakh:

“Lenin, who viewed Turkey as the main ally, transferred two territories – Nakhichevan, populated in half by Armenians and Azerbaijanis, and Karabakh, inhabited exclusively by Armenians, to Azerbaijan. In fact, there is one detail that fundamentally separates the problem of Karabakh with Crimea and many other problems. The law of the Soviet Union, which was adopted in 1990, provided for a fairly clear rule for the secession of the union republic, and it was clearly stated that the autonomous republics and national groups of compact residence should vote separately. And in the event of this disintegration, they have the right to their own self-determination. This is a very important point that many people ignore now. Therefore, the question of Azerbaijan’s sovereignty is dubious,” Kasparov observed.

The Turks and the Turkic Azeris don’t even need nor want Karabagh for purely economic or nationalistic purposes: they want to genocide the Armenians, conquer what remains of historic Armenia, create a contiguous land corridor between Turkey and Azerbaijan and thus reach all the way to the Caspian Sea and the Turkic states of Central Asia beyond.

Secondly,

The Turks and the Israeli Jews aim to establish an Islamic terrorist base of Jihadi ISIS fighters in Karabakh to infiltrate northern Caucasus and harass and attack Iran below.
