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

An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth

An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth

Hundred eyes for one, thousand teeth for one that is the only way they will stop the nonsense and obey the ceasefire.

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.

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.
