Artsakh forces down Azerbaijani drone
 
 

The air defense units of the Artsakh Defense Army downed an Azerbaijani Orbiter unmanned aerial vehicle as it entered Artsakh’s airspace, the Defense Ministry informs.

The Artsakh Defense Ministry says the number of flights carried out by the enemy’s air forces in the areas adjacent to the line of contact between the Azerbaijani and Karabakh armed forces, which are of both educational and reconnaissance nature, has increased.

“In addition to various types of fighter jets and helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles are involved in these operations, which, unlike the first ones, often try to penetrate into the airspace of the Artsakh Republic for reconnaissance purposes,” the Ministry said in a statement.

The Artsakh Defense Ministry urges the Azerbaijani side to refrain from provocative steps and assures that any offensive action will receive a worthy response.

April 22, 2020 - 19:22 AMT

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Nagorno Karabakh (Artsakh) Defense Army on Wednesday, April 22 published pictures of an Azerbaijani Orbiter drone downed the previous day.

Azerbaijan's air forces have recently been flying in areas close to the line of contact with Karabakh for both educational and reconnaissance purposes, the Karabakh military said.

"In addition to various types of fighter jets and helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles are involved in those operations, which often try to violate Artsakh's airspace for reconnaissance purposes," the Tuesday statement said.

It was during one such flight on April 21 that Karabakh's air defense units downed the drone, the Army said.

Artsakh army’s retaliation has been ‘painful’ for official Baku – Defense Ministry

The Artsakh Republic Defense Ministry reacted to the statements of Azerbaijani Defense Minister Zakir Hasanov, revealing the reasons behind them.

A statement issued by the ministry's press service reads:

"In recent weeks, the response of the Artsakh army to the ceasefire violations initiated by the adversary along different parts of the line of contact between the Artsakh-Azerbaijani opposing forces seems to have been rather painful for the military-political leadership of official Baku.

Most likely, this is the reason why for several days already, the leadership of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces, in particular, the defense minister, has been regularly visiting different sections of the frontline, trying to somehow encourage their demoralized soldiers.

The Azerbaijani defense minister paid a similar visit to the northeastern and eastern parts of the contact line on May 4, which was fully monitored by the relevant services of the Defense Army.

Adhering to the requirements stemming from the appeal of the UN secretary general to observe the ceasefire amid the pandemic, the Artsakh Armed Forces command staff informs that any movement of the adversary on the frontline, including at the top level, is under the control of the relevant Defense Army services, while the frontline troops are ready to take necessary measures based on the situation.”

Armenian MoD warns Azerbaijan
 
 
 
 
Yerevan /Mediamax/. Defense Ministry of Armenia has warned Azerbaijan today that any attempt to bring military equipment and personnel close to the borders of Armenia or Artsakh during the drills on May 18-22 "will be considered a provocation and met with corresponding actions”.
 
The Defense Ministry has issued a statement, which reads:
 
 
 
“According to the announcement by the Defense Ministry of Azerbaijan, the country is going to conduct large-scale operative and strategic exercise on May 18-22.
 
 
 
It should be noted that the exercise focuses on the training for an offensive, which will include mass strikes with missile and artillery, aviation, and high-accuracy weapons.
 
 
 
The Defense Ministry of Armenia brings to the notice of OSCE, OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs, Personal Representative of OSCE Chairperson-in-Office and the international community the fact that following its custom, Azerbaijan implements large-scale military drills without prior notification, which is another gross violation of the 2011 Vienna document that outlines the means for strengthening trust and security.
 
 
 
The Defense Ministry of Armenia condemns the implementation of this exercise which aggravates the security situation in the region on the background of the need for coordinated efforts against COVID-19 pandemic and in defiance of the call for ceasefires globally by the UN Secretary General.
 
 
 
We urge Azerbaijan to exercise restraint and respect its international commitments. At the same time, we inform Azerbaijan that any attempt to bring military equipment and personnel close to the borders of Armenia or Artsakh during the drills will be considered a provocation and met with corresponding actions.”

Armenian side to initiate preventive measures immediately in case Azerbaijani drills contain any threat: deputy DM
 

Such scale of military drills without initial planning was impossible to conduct, deputy minister of defense Gabriel Balayan told the reporters today, referring to the drills in Azerbaijan.

“There are international commitments, it is when Azerbaijani Republic as OSCE Minsk Group member and a country that has joined corresponding agreements has commitments which it should implement. But we are already used to such working style of the adversary. These drills have not raised any tension on either borders with Armenia or Republic of Artsakh,” the official said.

Balayan stressed that the Armenian side will undertake preventive measures without any hesitation if they feel that Azerbaijani actions may contain threat for Armenia or Artsakh.

“I think the international community is well aware about it as we have stated about it beforehand. I repeat there is no need to worry, we are familiarized with this working style for already several years and we are ready for it, no changes in the implementation of our military commitments have occurred. Indeed, we have raised our soberness but have not undertaken any emergency measures as such because we are expecting everything from the adversary,” the deputy minister said.

Azerbaijani Special Forces Suffer Losses after Attack Attempt

 

Azerbaijani special forces suffered losses on Friday when their attempt to attack a military base in Artsakh was thwarted by Artsakh soldiers, the Artsakh Defense Ministry reported.

“The elite units of the Defense Army immediately detected the advancement of the Azerbaijani special forces and repelled them back to their starting positions by inflicting losses. The Defense Army did not sustain losses during the firefight,” the Artsakh military said in a statement.

“The Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Artsakh calls on the Azerbaijani side to refrain from the futile tactics of artificially escalating the situation. Otherwise, the Azerbaijani side will bear the entire responsibility of the tension created at the frontline,” added the military.

Baku police disperse participants of rally demanding to start war in Karabakh

default.jpg
 

A group of activists tried to hold an action demanding war in Karabakh in front of the Milli Majlis, Turan reported.

The protesters told Turan that they accuse the parliament that the deputies do not protect the interests of the country.

According to one of the participants, Armenians declare Shushi the capital, and 99 deputies of their parliament agree to 'build a bridge from Iran to the occupied territories of Azerbaijan', that is why they are protesting.

It should be noted that no one has yet proclaimed Shushi - the oldest Armenian cultural center - the capital.

The police arrived at the scene and detained protesters. A member of the Musavat party, Ilgar Mahmud, was taken away in a police car. Another 11 protesters were put on a bus and taken to a police station. Others were dispersed.

Share
 
1016766.jpg 12:30, 29 May, 2020

YEREVAN, MAY 29, ARMENPRESS. The statement made by Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev on May 28 was not a statement worthy of a politician, President of Artsakh Arayik Harutyunyan said today live on Facebook.

“He [Ilham Aliyev] announced that the force factor is becoming a priority in the world. In other words, did you choose the path to solve the issue through force, Mr. Aliyev? We are ready. I want to assure that the results are clear to us: what you had in 1994, you will also have it today. Never try to speak to us in the language of force!” Harutyunyan said.

 

He said Artsakh is ready to the logical solution of the issue through peaceful means and negotiations.

“The statements you have made that it is only the stage-by-stage version, I will say the following: of course, it can be solved through stages, but only in one option: firstly – the recognition of the right to self-determination, secondly – acceptance of our security guarantees after which only negotiations. There will be no other option”, the President of Artsakh said.

Four Azerbaijani Troops Die in Clashes With Armenia
July 13, 2020 Updated: July 13, 2020
 
 

YEREVAN, Armenia—Armenia and Azerbaijan blamed each other on Monday for skirmishes on their volatile border that has left four Azerbaijani soldiers dead and several troops wounded on both sides.

The two neighbours in the South Caucasus have been locked in conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh, a region of Azerbaijan that has been under the control of ethnic Armenian forces backed by Armenia since a war there ended in 1994. International efforts to settle the conflict have stalled.

Armenian and Azerbaijani forces have frequently engaged in clashes. In 2016, scores were killed in four days of fighting.

The latest incident began Sunday when Armenian and Azerbaijani troops exchanged fire in the northern section of their border. Officials in both countries blamed each other for starting the fighting and said that sporadic shelling continued Monday.

Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry said that four of its soldiers have been killed in Armenian shelling since Sunday and another one later died in a hospital. It said five Azerbaijani servicemen were wounded.

Armenian Defense Ministry spokeswoman Shushan Stepanyan said Monday that two Armenian troops were wounded. Hayk Chobanyan, the governor of Armenia’s Tavush region where the clashes occurred, later said that three other servicemen were wounded.

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan accused Azerbaijan of provoking the clashes and warned that it would “bear responsibility for the unpredictable consequences.”

Azerbaijani President Ilhan Aliyev denounced what he described as “another provocation of Armenia” and vowed to protect Azerbaijan’s national territory.

Turkey, which has close ethnic and cultural ties with Azerbaijan, voiced strong support to Baku in the conflict.

“What Armenia did is unacceptable. It must get back to its senses,” Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said in an interview with state broadcaster TRT. “Azerbaijan is not alone. The Turkish Republic and the Turkish people, is with Azerbaijan with all of its capabilities.”

In Moscow, the Russian Foreign Ministry has expressed “serious concern” about the outbreak of fighting and warned against further escalation that could undermine regional security.

Russia has maintained close ties with both Armenia and Azerbaijan and has been part of the so-called Minsk group of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe alongside the United States and France, which has tried to mediate a settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

Toivo Klaar, the European Union’s special representative for the South Caucasus, voiced concern about the exchange of fire on the Armenia-Azerbaijan border, wrote on Twitter that it’s “important for both countries to show restraint and to use all channels of communication, both direct and the good offices of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs.”

Armenia strongly condemns Turkey's attempts to instigate instability in the region

“Turkey's attempts to intervene in the conflicts in its neighboring regions has already undermined the security and stability thereon,” Armenia’s foreign ministry stated on Monday, reacting to the latest statement issued by Turkey’s foreign ministry on the recent escalation on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border.

The ministry reminded that in its statement the Turkish side not only expressed its unconditional support to Azerbaijan, in fact justifying the use of force by Azerbaijan on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, but also disseminated utterly false and misleading information.

“This provocative attitude by Turkey and its groundless accusations against Armenia attest to the fact that this country has not been acting as a member of the OSCE Minsk Group, but as a party, involved in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. This fact makes even more impossible for Turkey to play any role in the issues related to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, within international, and particularly the OSCE framework,” the statement said, adding: “We strongly condemn Turkey's attempts to instigate instability in our region, and affirm that Armenia will continue to consistently work towards maintaining and strengthening the international and regional security, while closely cooperating with international partners to this end.”

Armenia downs several UAVs amid Azerbaijani attack, images show remnants of Israeli-made drone

1021550.jpg 18:39, 13 July, 2020

YEREVAN, JULY 13, ARMENPRESS. The Armenian Armed Forces have shot down not one but several Azerbaijani unmanned aerial vehicles amid the cross-border fighting when Azerbaijani troops launched an attack on an Armenian military position in the direction of Tavush province.

“As of this moment we have downed not one but several UAVs, one of them a kamikaze drone. All adversary actions have basically been suppressed in their logic,” lawmaker Andranik Kocharyan, the Chair of the Parliamentary Committee on Defense and Security Affairs, said at a session.

 

Images of one of the downed drones shows the remnants of what appears to be either a Thunder-B recon drone, or a Skystriker combat drone (loitering munition) – both of Israeli production.

Azerbaijan had also deployed the Thunder-B drones during the 2016 clashes, known as the April War.

The Skystrikers are comparably new weapons, and Azerbaijan displayed it in its arsenal in 2019 January.

Azerbaijan arrests ex-defense chief for saying 12 of their troops were killed in action

 
 
Share
 
1021556.jpg 19:11, 13 July, 2020

YEREVAN, JULY 13, ARMENPRESS. Azerbaijani authorities have arrested the country’s former Defense Minister Rahim Ghaziyev for what they call “spreading targeted provocative disinformation on social media, making calls to citizens on public disorders and capturing state bodies”.

Ghaziyev, who was in office from 1992 to 1993, has been charged with two Criminal Code articles – “calls against the state” and “provocation”.

 

Ghaziyev was actually arrested after he claimed in a statement that 12 Azerbaijani troops were killed in action in the latest clashes at the Armenian border.

The military attack launched by Azerbaijan on an Armenian military base, and the shelling of civilian settlement in Tavush province, and the complete failure of this offensive has created a difficult situation for Baku, which is trying to conceal the real numbers of its losses, and the arrest of Ghaziyev pursuing the goal.

Azerbaijani troops launched an attack on an Armenian military base in Tavush province, using artillery, mortar shells and UAVs. The Azerbaijani military also shelled the town of Chinari with 120mm mortars, damaging civilian homes.

Сегодня СМИ пишут, что армянские вооруженные силы сбили супер современный и очень дорогостоящий (до 30 миллионов долларов) беспилотник Elbit Hermes 900 израильс… See More
Today the media says that the Armenian armed forces hit super modern and very expensive (up to 30 million dollars) drone Elbit Hermes 900 Israeli production. The unit is very serious, consisting of weapons in dozens of countries of the world and able to be in the air for more than 30 hours. Contrary to what some of my Armenian friends write, this is not a drone strike - there is no weapons on it. His task is another, he is engaged in intelligence, radio interception, interference for aviation and ground forces of the opponent. They have been produced since 2009 and have proven themselves in the best way. There are about 10 pieces of such machines in Azerbaijan, according to other data 15. Now it has become one less.
In fact, this is the first case when the machine of this level has been hit. Still, no one has ever managed to "get it", despite the fact that such aggregates are constantly used in the fighting in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Sudan, Afghanistan. These cars are still controlling the US and Mexico border, monitoring drug cartels, they have long been working in Colombia and Brazil to fight rebels and drug dealers.
So the Armenian military bravo! Guys, good for you guys.
I asked a question about this incident to my friend who worked as an instructor engineer for many years at the Israeli company Elbit Systems, developing and producing this and other drones. In his opinion, only full razgilds and unprofessionals could put this "flying brain" of any army. Logical! It's not a sleeping soldier to chop with an axe in Budapest and not a harmless blogger to choke four in Baku.
