The only way for them to stop, if they get a powerful response that will teach them a lesson they will never forget.

7 years-old Albert’s song from border (video)

7 years-old Albert Qartashyan,  who lives in the town of Berd in Tavush province, wishes peace. It’s hard for him to describe by words what is peace, so he just smiles.

He likes to sing, and this song dedicates everyone who keeps the border. The film is shot in the village of Movses.

Yerevan may opt for pre-emptive response options in light of Azerbaijani imminent assault - The Central Asia-Caucasus Analyst

“The overall assessment of the Armenian Armed Forces is favorable, with many experts rating it as the strongest army in the Caucasus, and unit-for-unit possibly in the CSTO,”

The Central Asia-Caucasus Analyst Eduard Abrahamyan writes in a column published on the CACI Analyst biweekly magazine, adding the Armenian military displays high morale and professionalism, although it competes with Azerbaijan’s massive increase in defense spending.

According to the author, despite facing limitations in its economic and military resources, Yerevan may opt for asymmetric or pre-emptive response options if an assault from Azerbaijan appears to be imminent. Abrahamyan recalls the military drills held in December by JAAF in Nagorno-Karabakh as an evidence that Armenia has also reintroduced a military training concept that entails snap exercises. This reduces Azerbaijan’s ability to predict Armenian maneuvers and keeps the operational situation tense.

“Yerevan considers Nagorno-Karabakh as an inalienable part of Armenia and is determined to continue positioning itself as the only legitimate security guarantor for Armenians living in the region, and to gain acknowledgment of this role from key stakeholders. In extension, Yerevan seeks to gain international recognition as a net-security provider, which motivates Armenia’s involvement in international peacekeeping missions worldwide,” the author writes, adding: “The chief objective of Armenia’s defense policy is to deny Azerbaijan a similar regional ambition, which if attained would in Armenian strategic thinking challenge the country’s very existence. In accordance with this logic, any alteration of the status quo in Azerbaijan’s favor is perceived as an unacceptable threat to Armenia’s statehood. These dynamics make sustained reform of the army and enhancement of defensive and offensive capabilities a top security priority, which in effect determines Armenia’s foreign policy agenda.”

Karabakh reports on attempted attack from Azerbaijan 2d3bdb7c7cc95908594b053ac00a9.png

The Azerbaijani Armed Forces on the night of Jan 25 tried to penetrate positions of the Nagorno-Karabakh Defense Army.

As the press office of the Karabakh defense ministry reports, the raiders were registered while moving towards the defense unit in the south-eastern section of the contact line (Kuropatkino).

The Karabakh side took preventive measures and made the Azerbaijani special forces troops come back. Under preliminary reports, there are losses in the Azerbaijani side. Details of the incident are to be clarified.

15:57, 25.01.2018

YEREVAN. – The failed attempt of sabotage, undertaken last night by Azerbaijani armed forces was a response to Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan’s call to Azerbaijanis at PACE, Artsakh ombudsman Ruben Melikyan wrote on Facebook.

“They will not stop. While there is widespread hatred towards Armenians in Azerbaijan, they will not stop. We need to be vigilant and attentive. And we should not deviate from the principle of respect for human rights,” he noted.

As reported earlier, on the night of January 25, Azerbaijani Armed Forces made an infilitration attempt  at the line of contact between the armed forces of Nagorno-Karabakh and Azerbaijan. The Azerbaijani forces were driven back.

Roman Balayan: There are Armenians kept as prisoners of war in Azerbaijan

According to some credential data, many Armenians captured during the Karabakh Liberation War are still alive and kept as prisoners of war in Azerbaijan, however the adversary does not want to hand them over to the Armenian side, Roman Balayan, Vice President of the Karabakh War Veterans' Union NGO and President of the Artsakh branch of the union, told a news conference on Tuesday.

Mr Balayan noted that one of those survivors is Rafael Balayan from Hartashen village of Karabakh’s Hadrout region, who is in his 50s now and has been kept in Azerbaijani prison since 1992. He highlighted that even the Red Cross is unable to get back the Armenian prisoner of war.

“Rafael Balayan’s two daughters are married and are living in Armenia. His son is in Russia now. I am convinced the Azerbaijani side will not hand him over after all. They even dishonor the deceased, not to talk about returning a living man. The adversary is bloodthirsty, whereas the Armenian side has handed over all the prisoners of war to the Azerbaijani side, including the ones captured during the April war,” he said.

Roman Balayan noted an estimated number of 800 people both from Artsakh and Armenia have gone missing.

He also highlighted Vera Grigoryan, the Chairman of the “Union of Relatives of Missing Freedom Fighters” NGO, is sparing no effort day and night to bring back even the relics of the missing Armenians for them to rest in Armenia. 

Touching upon the program of providing assistance to the families of the April war victims, Balayan stressed they are always in the center of attention and care.

In the end, the speaker reminded a total of 23 women freedom fighters fell during the Artsakh war.

American Mercenary Was in Talks with Azerbaijan over Weaponized Crop Duster

The weapons dealer did not have a license to sell to Azerbaijan, however, and the deal fell through.

An American mercenary attempted to sell modified crop duster aircraft to Azerbaijan's military, contravening United States laws on defense exports, a new investigation has found.

The mercenary, Erik Prince, was secretly brokering a deal to sell American-made Thrush 510G aircraft, with weapons and surveillance equipment added, to Azerbaijan's Ministry of Defense. But the deal fell apart after Prince's company's management caught wind of the project and hired a law firm to investigate. That is according to the American news website The Intercept.

“The evidence strongly suggests that Mr. Prince was offering a foreign defense article (i.e., an attack aircraft) for sale to the Azerbaijan MOD,” the company's lawyers found, The Intercept reported. The lawyers determined that Prince likely had no license to export weapons to Azerbaijan. The company, Frontier Services Group, voluntarily reported its findings to the State Department. “The potential violations stem principally from conduct of Mr. Prince,” FSG's CEO wrote to the director of the State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls, in a letter obtained by The Intercept.

Prince weaponized the aircraft “without FSG management knowledge” to “prevent management oversight,” Smith wrote in the letter, alleging that Prince “for his own interests directed the aircraft modification and then promoted the sale of the modified aircraft to private buyers and governments.”

The foiled Azerbaijan deal was part of a larger project by which Prince was trying to create what The Intercept called a “private air force.” The centerpiece of this force was to be the Thrush crop duster, modified to include surveillance and laser targeting equipment, as well as two 23-mm machine guns.

The main market was to be African countries engaged in counterinsurgency wars, and it's not clear what Azerbaijan would do with such an aircraft. A 23-mm gun is not particularly powerful and while it would be effective against unarmored guerrilla groups, Azerbaijan's main foe is Armenia and its conventional armed forces.

But Azerbaijan has been thinking unconventionally in its aircraft purchases; it was the first country ever to use Israel's “kamikaze drone,” the Harop, in battle.

And Prince has a long history in Azerbaijan. His former company Blackwater was hired by the Pentagon to train Azerbaijani naval special forces in 2004.

“Prince’s offer to sell the aircraft was part of a broader proposal to Azerbaijan for security and logistical services. That effort was known internally at FSG as 'Project Zulu,'” The Intercept reported. “Prince used FSG’s legitimacy to privately pitch an array of services to Azerbaijan. The ... investigation determined that nearly everything Prince offered to the Azerbaijani government was a service FSG couldn’t provide and was not for the company’s benefit. The deal ultimately fell apart.”

Azerbaijan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs did not respond to a request for comment.

Cattle harmed as Azerbaijani fire targets Armenia’s border village

Azerbaijani forces opened fire toward the pastures in the border village of Baghanis in Armenia’s Tavush Province, killing and harming cattle.

Speaking to Panorama.am, Narek Sahakyan, the head of the village, said that the incident occurred at around 4:30 p.m. on 8 April.

“The shelling lasted for 5-7 minutes. One cow was killed, while two others had to be slaughtered. Two other cows were also harmed, but there was no need for a forced slaughter,” he said.

According to Narek Sahakyan, the situation in the village is calm at the moment, with the inhabitants busy with their daily affairs.

To note, on April 7 and overnight April 8, Azerbaijani military made several ceasefire violations in the Nakhijevan section, opening gunfire toward the Armenian Armed Forces mostly from firearms. The Armenian forces took countermeasures to suppress the adversary.

Karabakh reports on Azerbaijani troops mobilizing on the front line 13549cc1d88bdb3135979c7f6399c.png

The Nagorno-Karabakh Defense Ministry has distributed a video showing the accumulation and movement of Azerbaijani manpower and military equipment on the contact line in the conflict zone.

"The Azerbaijani Defense Ministry released a statement on April 22 to hide its provocations on the border, in which it said that the information disseminated on April 21 by the Artsakh Defense Ministry about the tense situation on the contact line is fake and distracting public attention from mass unrest. In fact, as for the accumulation and movement of enemy's manpower and military equipment on the contact line between the Karabakh and Azerbaijani opposing forces, we propose just to watch the video without any comments," the defense department report said.

Advanced Israeli Weapons Sold to Azerbaijan Exposed in Army-produced Pop Music Video

Israeli firm loses kamikaze-drone export license after complaint it carried out live demo on Armenian army
 

A music video celebrating Azerbaijan’s border guards and showcasing the Azeri army’s military capabilities has revealed that advanced weapons systems made by the Israeli defense industry are being used by the Azeri army.

The video, which clocks in at 4 minutes and 15 seconds, shows local singer Narmin Karimbayova exalting the Azerbaijan State Border Service in song, accompanied by footage of all the military systems the Azeri military has to offer. It also shows two additional advanced weapons systems manufactured in Israel by Israel Aerospace Industries and Rafael Advanced Defense Systems.

2477199403.jpgA still from the music video shows the Typhoon weapon system firing Spike missiles from an Azeri navy ship.Azerbaijan State border service video

At 1:55 the video shows a launch of the IAI Harop loitering munition system. The Harop is an anti-radiation drone that can autonomously zero in on radio emissions. It can be operated from land or sea and rather than carrying a separate warhead, the drone itself is the main munition – also known as a suicide drone. The Harop is fired from a 12-missile launcher, usually carried on a truck, and has a relatively high flying time of 6 hours.

The drone is equipped with a day and night sensor, allowing forces to seek and detect targets across a wide terrain. It allows operators to set the attack time and make high precision hits on both stationary and moving targets. With a wing span of three meters and weighing 135 kilograms, the Harop is capable of carrying warheads of up to 15 kilograms and allows attacks from different angles, with the operator having control of the system right up to the point of impact. Operators can halt the assault if necessary and even recall the missile without triggering it. The Harop can also crash into the designated target with optimal precision.

In April 2016, the Washington Post reported that footage filmed in the Armenian separatist enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh, where battles erupted between Armenian and Azeri soldiers, shows what appears to be an Israeli suicide drone hovering in the sky. This seems to be one of the first times the Azeri army used a deadly aircraft and based on the footage, it looks like the Harop drone. Responding to the incident to the Russian news agency RIA Novosti, the Armenian defense ministry spokesperson said the footage shows the drone attempted to hit a bus full of “Armenian volunteers” and killed seven of them. 

The Armenian government subsequently issued a harsh condemnation of Israeli arms being supplied to the Azeri army.

In response to the Azeri army video, IAI stated it does not “discuss its deals or clients.” Rafael also holds to this principle and does not officially comment on arms deals made with different countries.

At 3:18 in the video, the Typhoon weapon system is seen firing Spike missiles from an Azeri navy ship. The system, called Typhoon MLS-NLOS, was developed at Rafael and is carried on a warship. It allows for full control of the launched missiles, up to the point of impact; the missile can be diverted from its course in case the operator aborts the mission. The system is based on Spike missiles, electro-optical missiles that have been used by Israeli Defense Forces since the 1980s, although upgraded version were made over the years.

 

 

 

 

 

 

In recent years, many cargo planes have flown the Azerbaijan-Israel route on a regular basis. Silk Way Airlines cargo planes land in Ben-Gurion International Airport three times a week. According to international flight tracking websites, over the past two years, six planes belonging to the Azeri defense ministry landed in an Israeli military base in southern Israel and took off several hours later after loading or unloading cargo.

Azerbaijan and Israel have had a solid relationship for over 20 years. Azerbaijan’s geographic location along the southern border of Iran also plays a critical role in this relationship. Two-thirds of the oil entering Israel comes from Azerbaijan, with President Ilham Aliyev’s approval. Media outlets have addressed the security cooperation between the two countries in the past. It was reported that Israel sells Azerbaijan radar systems and drones, and according to foreign media reports, Israel collects intelligence on Iran from Azeri territory.

In 2016, Azerbaijan said it purchased nearly $5 billion worth of defense equipment from Israel. Aliyev said at the time that defense industry cooperation between the countries had lasted for several years and was flourishing. “The biggest part of these [defense equipment purchasing] contracts has already been executed and still we continue to work on that,” said Aliyev, continuing, “And we are very satisfied with the level of this cooperation.”

Azerbaijani MP Warns of Likely Armenian Civil War, Calls for Reclaiming Karabakh
© Sputnik /
World
 
BAKU (Sputnik) - Azerbaijani lawmaker Gudrat Hasanguliyev warned on Tuesday that the situation in Armenia might turn into a civil war and insisted that Baku should use the opportunity to return the breakaway region of Nagorno-Karabakh.

Armenia has been engulfed in a political crisis since April, when Serzh Sargsyan, who previously served as president for two terms, was appointed prime minister. Sargsyan's appointment, viewed as his attempt to stay in office, led to large-scale anti-government protests, which resulted in his resignation. The Armenian parliament is currently addressing the issue of a new prime minister's election and considers the candidacy of Armenian protest leader Nikol Pashinyan.

"We should take a decision and use in a timely manner the opportunity to liberate our territories. As it is expected that there will be a civil war in Armenia in the near future. We should monitor the situation attentively," Hasanguliyev was quoted as saying by the Azeri-Press Agency (APA).

The lawmaker has also suggested that a special meeting of the country's parliament should be held in order to discuss the developments in neighboring Armenia.

Earlier in the day, the Defense Ministry of the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic said that since April 30 the Azerbaijani forces had been increasing their presence on the contact line. The ministry added that the units of the Karabakh armed forces monitored the developments and maintained complete control of the situation.

The conflict in Armenian-dominated Nagorno-Karabakh started in 1988 with the autonomous region announcing its secession from the Azerbaijan Socialist republic. In 1991, the region proclaimed independence from Azerbaijan and the creation of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic. This move triggered a military conflict, which led to Baku losing control over the region.

 

The warring sides agreed to a cessation of hostilities in 1994. The violence escalated again in 2016, leading to multiple casualties on both sides. The sides soon reached a ceasefire but clashes continued.

STEPANAKERT. – Tension along the line of contact between Karabakh and Azerbaijani opposing forces was preserved during the recent seven days.

In particular, the adversary amassed manpower and military equipment and carried out active repositioning starting from April 30 at various sectors of the line of contact, the Karabakh army said in a statement.

The OSCE monitoring revealed no ceasefire violation cases and was conducted, in accordance with the agreed schedule.

The adversary breached the truce more than 200 times, from April 29 to May 5. During this time the Azerbaijani armed forces fired around 3,000 shots toward the Republic of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh Republic/NKR) military positions.

But the NKR Defense Army vanguard units fully control the frontline, and they continue confidently carrying out their combat duty.

PanARMENIAN.Net - On June 6 and 7, the Azerbaijani side appealed to the Command of Armenian Armed Forces asking to allow some citizens to approach the graveyard of the southern suburbs of the village of Gyunut, Armenian Defense Ministry spokesman Artsrun Hovhannisyan said in a Facebook post.

Hovhannisyan said it was the first time for Azerbaijan to make such a request concerning that part near the border.

"Committed to the humanitarian norms and constantly taking steps to deescalate tension, the Armenian side has agreed to allow civilians to approach the tomb for a short time."

YEREVAN. – On Wednesday and Thursday, the Azerbaijani side petitioned to the Armed Forces Command of Armenia, with a request to permit some Azerbaijani citizens to visit the graveyards in the southern suburbs of the ruined settlement of Gyunnut.

Artsrun Hovhannisyan, spokesperson for the Minister of Defense of Armenia, informed about the abovementioned.

“The Azerbaijani side has made such a request in that sector for the first time,” Hovhannisyan wrote on his Facebook page. “The Armenian side, being faithful to humanitarian norms and constantly taking steps toward reducing tension, agreed to allow the peaceful residents to approach the graveyard for a short time.”

But after this humanitarian step by Armenia, Azerbaijani media disseminated disinformation that, supposedly, Azerbaijan had occupied new territories in the direction of Nakhijevan.

Eleven Thousand Hectares of Nakhchivan Territory Liberated from Armenian Occupation
 

As reported on Saturday by the Nuhjihan state news agency of NAR with reference to the press service of the Separate Combined Army stationed in NAR, at the end of May the village of Gunnut of the Sharur region, occupied in 1992, was liberated. The important strategic heights located around the village were also liberated. In particular, the Azerbaijani army liberated the mountain Hunut, the hill Agbulag, and the mountains Gizilgaya and Mehridag, thus occupying more favorable positions.

The Arpa village in Daralayaz (Areni in the Armenian version) was also taken under control.

In total, a territory of over 11,000 hectares, including 8,000 hectares suitable for agriculture, has been taken under control by the Azerbaijani Armed Forces.

The control of the mountain Gizilgaya at an altitude of 1,683 meters above sea level is of particular importance, since it allows the Azerbaijani army to control the Yerevan-Yeghegnadzor-Goris-Lachin-Khankendi highway.

Armenian MFA blasts Azeri killing of Artsakh soldier as ’provocation’

A spokesperson for the Armenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) has blasted Azerbaijan for the recent ceasefire violation on the contact line that left an Artsakh soldier dead, the ministry’s press service told Panorama.am.

In his commentary issued on Monday, Tigran Balayan slammed the incident as a ‘provocation’, stressing Azerbaijan bears full responsibility for the possible consequences of the incident.

The full statement is provided below:

“Yesterday night, an Armenian soldier was shot dead as result of Azerbaijan's gross violation of the ceasefire regime on Artsakh-Azerbaijan Line of Contact. We extend our deepest condolences to the relatives and fellow servicemen of the deceased.

We consider this action, committed on the eve of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs’ visit to Armenia, as another provocation by Baku aimed at escalating the situation and failing the agreements on reducing tensions. This incident once again stresses the importance of implementing the 1994-1995 trilateral ceasefire agreements with no time limitations, as well as the agreements on introducing a mechanism for investigating border incidents as agreed at the 2016-2017 Summits on Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and on expanding the capacities of the Personal representative of OSCE Chairman-in-Office.  

We have repeatedly stated that creating the environment conducive to peace is of key importance in Nagorno-Karabakh peace process. Such actions of the Azerbaijani side are in fact pursuing the opposite goal.

The Azerbaijani side is fully responsible for all the possible consequences of this provocation.”

An Artsakh Defense Army soldier identified as Vahagn J. Eloyan (born in 1992) was fatally wounded as a result of Azerbaijani gunfire on Sunday evening at a military post in the southeastern direction.

A probe has been launched into the incident.
