Azerbaijan has given Turkey control over the air segment of its military campaign to capture the Nagorno-Karabakh region, the Armenian Defense Ministry reported on September 30. According to Artsrun Hovhannisyan, Turkish and Azerbaijani aviation is being coordinated by the E7-T aircraft of the Turkish Air Force, which is an air command post. The military plane was spotted near the Turkish cities of Erzurum and Kars.

“It is possible that the leadership of the Turkish Air Force is on board this plane,” Hovhannisyan added.

As an example of such actions, the Armenian side claimed that two Turkish F-16 fighters, an Azerbaijani Su-25 attack aircraft, as well as a Turkish combat drone “Bayraktar”, which took off from the city of Kurdamir, had inflicted a missile and bomb attack on the Karabakh towns of Hadrut and Martakert.

Further a command and control post for Turkish combat drones is located near the city of Hadrut. It is reportedly coordinating the strikes of Azerbaijani warplanes.

Pro-Armenian sources insist that the Chief of General Staff of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces Najmaddin Sadigov was in fact removed from his command of the Karabakh operation at the behest of Turkish military advisers and specialists. Sadigov was allegedly an opponent of the dramatically increased influence of Turkey in the Azerbaijani military.

Armenia also showed photos of its Su-25 attack aircraft, which, according to it, was downed by a Turkish F-16 on September 29. The pilot of the Su-25, Major Valery Danelin, died. In their turn, Turkey and Azerbaijan insist that the Turkish Air Force and other branches of Turkish military are not involved in the conflict. According to Fahrettin Altun, the head of the communications department of the Turkish presidential administration, Armenian claims are “another fantasy of the Armenian military propaganda machine.” The Azerbaijani side, in turn, said that two Armenian Su-25 warplanes crashed into the mountain and exploded, the rest is absurd and disinformation.

Since September 30, the situation on the frontline between Armenian and Azerbaijani forces has not changed significantly. Despite this, intense firefights, artillery duels and air strikes are being reported along the entire contact line. Armenian sources accuse Azerbaijan and Turkey of intentional bombing of civilian areas of the Nagorno-Karabakh republic, including its capital, and even inside Armenia itself.

Meanwhile, Azerbaijan, which ceased to name areas allegedly seized from the Armenians, insists that its forces have captured several key positions on the frontline. According to Baku, since the morning of September 27, its forces have destroyed up to 200 battle tanks and other armored vehicles, 228 artillery pieces, rocket launchers, mortars, 30 air defense systems, 6 command-control and observation posts, 5 ammunition depots, more than 110 vehicles and an S-300 anti-aircraft missile system. The number of killed or injured Armenian fighters was not provided but if one checks previous Azerbaijani reports, it has supposedly already exceeded 1,000.

On the other hand, the Armenian side said that during the last 24 hours only 130 Azerbaijani service members were killed, 260 others were injured, 32 military equipment pieces were destroyed and 13 UAVs were downed.

Both sides regularly release videos showing the destruction of enemy positions and equipment. Nevertheless it seems that without more active participation from the Turkish side, Azerbaijan is unable to deliver a rapid and devastating military blow to Armenia and thus capture the contested region. However, if the regional situation remains same, the Azerbaijani military is likely to have the upper hand in any developing war just because it has more manpower, weapons, military equipment and ammunition.

That region is very prominet in ancient lore, for good reasons.

Yep Armenia could easily go down, drones are capable of taking out S-300 platforms, then it’s all over if Turkey is bolstering Azeri air attack capabilities, why people of every distinction sit and watch the dirty little Freemason Judens her away using mind control telepathy that I brought to Earth and was usurped by the homosexual Sid Loder on behalf of Jews I’ll never understand.


Yep the jus r the children of lucifer

Rodney Loder

Not true, Turkey is locked into support for Azerbaijan because of the way in which their republic was formed, not by the Islamists and Britain who supported the Sultan in the early 1920’s but by the Pashas who became the Republic led by Mustafa Ataturk.

I could explain that to the Turkish People and the conflict woul end, but nobody wants that don’t know why.


It seems the Azeris are willing to accept taking heavy losses as long as the Armenians do to. A war of attrition will favour them in the long run, especially if they can just keep throwing Syrian terrorists into the meat grinder.

Putin won’t help the two-faced Armenian administration (nor should he), but perhaps the French might once a ceasefire is reached. Either that or they’ll need to bend the knee for Putin and firmly realign themselves with Russia.

Fog of War

” French might once a ceasefire ”

France will be happy to, as will NATO. Isnt it obvious whats going on ?

Kishan Chali

There’s no point of Russia getting involved. Armenia should be let to taste the consequences of their short-sighted foreign policy.

Fog of War

However, if Armenia loses control of HK, the Armenian population will be furious at Russia and demand it withdraw from there. At that point NATO moves in, guaranteed. That might be the plan all along. Turkey ( NATO ) gets bases in Azerbaijan, NATO gets bases in Armenia and Iran and Russia get surrounded. Live action theater. Meanwhile, Putin will do his ” I didn’t see this coming ” dance right on que.


And right about the time the President announces Covid Quarantine and goes out of sight. Russia doesn’t take kindly to being surrounded.

Fog of War

Yes, suspect, very suspect. Might be a cover story.

“Look world the US is so “distracted ” right now . Meanwhile:

Is Mr. Pence about to go big time ?

Ishyrion Av

That’s why Russia will not allow Armenia to fall.

Fog of War

Armenia wont fail, they’ll just lose control of NK. The Armenian population ( sponsored by Soros , will do the rest. Good bye Russian base.

Ishyrion Av

Twisting the words does not twist the reality.


Is it true that Armenia pushed away from Russia in a Ukraine like color revolution before this current trouble, and now it puts their call for support against Azeris in a less focused lignt?

Fog of War

Armenia has a “Soros ” sponsored leader that has been moving towards the West / NATO.


Azerbaijan is simply taking back its land. They need to use any and everything with no rules. If you sit on occupied lands, you should have the decency to negotiate and leave in peace or reach a compromise.

Traiano Welcome

It is not Azeri land specifically. It has been Armenia since ancient times:

“Nagorno-Karabakh falls within the lands occupied by peoples known to modern archaeologists as the Kura-Araxes culture, who lived between the two rivers Kura and Araxes.

The ancient population of the region consisted of various autochthonous local and migrant tribes who were mostly non-Indo-Europeans.[11]

According to the prevailing western theory, these natives intermarried with Armenians who came to the region after its inclusion into Armenia in the 2nd or, possibly earlier, in 4th century BC.[12] Other scholars suggest that the Armenians settled in the region as early as in the 7th century BC.[13]”


America belongs to the Indigenous Americans, and so does Australia to the Aborigines. Now I am not for all this colonialism and pushing indigenous inhabitants out their lands and stuff but we have to find a balance here. If the maps say otherwise, there are two options: occupy the land illegally and have the balls to fight for it alone, or negotiate and reach some kind of compromise. In this case, give the Azeris back their land and negotiate for some kind of autonomy for the ethnic Armenians living there. If you are Russia in Crimea, keep it for the sake of your security and military balance but you know you are breaking the law.

says the turkish bot


I don’t got to be a Turkish bot. Ok, smart ass, how do you defend Armenia fighting for a land it is occupying?


Simple… It was given to the Soviet Socialist Republic of Azerbaijan by Stalin…

“However, the Soviet Union also had far-reaching plans concerning Turkey, hoping that it would, with a little help from them, develop along Communist lines. Needing to placate Turkey, the Soviet Union agreed to a division under which Zangezur would fall under the control of Armenia, while Karabakh and Nakhchivan would be under the control of Azerbaijan. Had Turkey not been an issue, Stalin would likely have left Karabakh under Armenian control. As a result, the Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Oblast was established within the Azerbaijan SSR on 7 July 1923.” -Wikipedia

Azerbaijan claims of Armenia losses in the war are exagerrated. Meanwhile Turkeys involvement in ground and air campaign against Armenia and even reach the capital Yerevan, manifested that Erdogan challenge Putin leadership..

Satan is moving his armies. Getting ready for ARMageddon. This fool playing right into his hands of being WIPED out.

If Erdogan had put as much devotion into the Palestine occupation, Palestine would have already been freed from the grip of the zionist cabals

Anvar Akbarov

This is the classical strategy of Russia. Just look around its neighborhood and the territorial disputes it has created: in Georgia it is North Ossetia, in Ukraine – it is Donbass region and annexation of Crimea, in Azerbaijan – it is Nagorno-Karabakh + 7 surrounding regions.

In the 1990’s Armenian forces with the help of the Russia have occupied Nagorno-Karabakh region and 7 districts of Azerbaijan.

I am personally an eye witness of thousands of refugees who managed to escape the mass cleansings of the Azeri population in the above mentioned occupied territories.

Since then the UN Security Council has issued 3 Resolutions on Nagorno-Karabakh and has called for immediate and unconditional withdrawal of all armenian forces from these territories, but Armenia has ignored them all.

If you have a religious or any other bias, you can be on the side of Armenian occupation. But if you are on the side of international law, and justice you should ask yourself one single question: why in 30 years the so called “Nagorno-Karabakh Republic” hasn’t been internationally recognized and is instead internationally recognized as Azerbaijan territories? I know that most of you are not familiar with the reality here, and the lies spread by Armenia, fabricating “historical facts”, but just think for a second, how does an international body like UN, base their decisions bias or international law? I am not here to think you, just for record you watch the interview of Armenian president on British Television, and make your own conclusions:


Albert Pike

He is a Soros man, brought into power in a fake revolution with millions of US Soros dollars, and he does what George Soros tells him to do. The Armenians are dupped like most of other voting cattle on the planet.

Now where does George Soros live – and No – not in Russia:


That’s where he lives now isn’t that a nice drone target?

thomas malthaus

My two sources inform me that US Ambassador to Turkey David Satterfield and Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan met on Thursday to discuss stationing US Navy ships and a Marine contingent at Samson and US Navy ships only at Trabzon.

Would someone hand President Erdogan a shovel?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
