Artsakh downs Azerbaijani recon UAV13:32, 25 September, 2019
STEPANAKERT, SEPTEMBER 25, ARMENPRESS. Artsakh military’s air defense units have shot down an Azerbaijani ORBITER 2 reconnaissance unmanned aerial vehicle at 10:15, September 25 in the Akna section, the Ministry of Defense of Artsakh said in a news release.

The air defense forces of the Artsakh Army downed an Azerbaijani drone carrying out a reconnaissance mission, the country’s defense ministry reported.
The Orbiter 2 unmanned aerial vehicle was shot down on Wednesday at around 10:15am, the ministry added.
The Orbiter 2 is manufactured by Aeronautics, an Israeli company, which within the context of a potential $20 million deal with Baku, became embroiled in controversy after Azerbaijani officials forced its specialist to conduct a “live demonstration” of its armed “kamikaze” drones on Artsakh targets in July, 2017. While two Aeronautics specialists refused the Azerbaijani order, company executives agreed to compel the attack.
This led to an investigation of Aeronautics by Israel’s government, which eventually suspended the company’s export license. However, in January, it lifted the ban on the sale of attack drones to Azerbaijan. Reports indicate that Aeronautics has opened offices in Baku last month.
On Sunday, Azerbaijani forces attempted to breach the Artsakh-Azerbaijan border–known as the line of contact–but Artsakh forces retaliated and prevented the attack. An Azerbaijani soldier was killed during the incident. His remains were returned to Azerbaijan through the efforts of the International Committee of the Red Cross.

Another Azerbaijani serviceman was seriously wounded during a failed incursion on the Artsakh frontline positions on Sunday, September 22, Artsakh presidential advisor Tigran Abrahamyan wrote on Facebook.
In an official statement the Artsakh Defense Ministry said the Azerbaijani subversive group left behind one body in the no-man’s land after being repelled by the Artsakh frontline troops.
“The Defense Army suffered no losses,” the ministry noted, adding that some episodes of the attack were caught on the surveillance cameras.
Artsakh returned the body of the killed saboteur to Azerbaijan on 24 September.
Abrahamyan said the wounded Azerbaijani soldier somehow managed to throw themselves back into their trenches and apparently succumbed to his wounds later.
“Our servicemen who witnessed the incident also confirmed this,” he said.
The advisor cited Facebook user Alen Ghulyan, who found and shared a video from the funeral ceremony of the soldier killed on the same day and in the same direction. He also posted photos of the Azerbaijani saboteur, which obviously show that he was not a conscript.
The second saboteur was identified as Qürbət Qürbət oğlu Quliyev.

Armenian prime minister’s spouse Anna Hakobyan has invited Azerbaijani president’s wife Mehriban Aliyeva to Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) to listen to mugham (a musical genre that weds orally transmitted music with classical written poetry).
“I want to invite Mehriban Aliyeva to Karabakh. She can be our guest. We know how to honor a guest: one of the rules of hospitality is to honor one with music, we can fulfill her dream and ensure that she listens to her beloved mugham in Karabakh,” she said, addressing the United Nations Security Council conference on Women, Peace and Security in Yerevan on Wednesday.
The PM’s wife added she is ready to pay a visit to Azerbaijan if Aliyeva accepts her invitation.
Her remarks came after the Azerbaijani first lady expressed a desire to listen to mugham in Karabakh on social media.
“However, if Mehriban Aliyeva means that their dream is to come to Karabakh and listen to mugham through war, I assure you that this dream will remain unfulfilled,” Hakobyan stressed. “Moreover, if they start a new war, there will appear new settlements where listening to mugham will become an unfulfilled dream for them.”

In an interview with Armenian News-NEWS.am, Director of the Institute of Oriental Studies at the National Academy of Sciences of Armenia, Turkologist Ruben Safrastyan said there is still a risk of Turkey’s sabotage with respect to the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
“Ankara might use Baku in the geopolitical game against Russia, and for this reason, Armenia has to be maximally alert and closely follow the situation on the border with Azerbaijan,” he stated.
On March 6 at around 5:30 a.m. Azerbaijani servicemen made an attempt of sabotage in the direction of one of the military posts on the northeastern border of Armenia. Thanks to the literate actions of Armenian soldiers, the adversary suffered casualties and pushed back to its starting point, leaving ammunition and a mine detector.
The Armenian side didn’t suffer casualties, and one serviceman was slightly wounded.

French political scientist’s prediction and Azerbaijan’s sabotage infiltration attempt16:34, 6 March, 2020
YEREVAN, MARCH 6, ARMENPRESS. The article titled “Erdogan pushes Aliyev to attack Artsakh: French political scientist” published recently in the Russian Realist news agency seems to be coming true.
French political scientist Marcel Pierre said in the article that in line with the Turkish operations in Syria President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is also trying to deteriorate the situation in South Caucasus, prompting Azerbaijan to re-launch the military operations in Artsakh, which in its turn will allow him to sit around a negotiation table both with Russia and the OSCE member states.
Today early in the morning the subversive incursion attempt launched by the Azerbaijani armed forces in the direction of an Armenian military position once again confirms the truth of thoughts voiced in the article that Baku is serving Ankara’s policy to destabilize the situation in South Caucasus.
Although the Azerbaijani attempt resulted in failure thanks to the literate operations of the Armenian forces, and the adversary was pushed back by suffering losses, the analysis show that that military “tour” of the adversary has been preceded by an active information outflow. For several days the Azerbaijani media outlets were reporting about the shelling of the Azerbaijani positions. In order to hide their aggressive actions today as well the Azerbaijani media continued spreading fake information according to which the Armenian side has violated the ceasefire regime.
One should not ignore the fact that recently Erdogan visited Azerbaijan, and as some sources report, and the leaders of the two brotherly states reached an agreement on artificially escalating the situation in the region for the benefit of Turkey.
The aforementioned clearly proves that today’s sabotage operation was a planned move under specific political interests.

Another kind of warfare, that the lowlifes are using!!!
Panorama, ArmeniaMarch 9 2020How Azerbaijani hackers stir panic among people in Armenian social media groups
Facebook user Alen Ghulyan has showed how Azerbaijani hacking groups under the country’s Defense Ministry and media resources covering the events of the Azerbaijani army spread fake news in Armenian groups of Facebook and other social media to stir panic among people.
“The military group Herbi Xeberler Ve Melumatlar, Reyncer13, a member of the hacking group Anti-Armenia Team actively cooperating with it, and armiya.az (ordu.az) website are actively involved in this ‘operation’,” he wrote.
“As you know, Azerbaijani hackers have recently hacked thousands of Armenian accounts to regularly spread disinformation in Armenian social media groups, in particular about the army's combat readiness.
Anush Danielyan is one of those hacked accounts. Experts create Armenian texts which are aimed at stirring panic and have nothing to do with the reality. Afterwards, they are posted on Armenian groups with a large number of users through these and other similar accounts,” the post read.
Naturally, it cases panic and the disinformation spreads rapidly by Armenian users, Alen Ghulyan says, adding it’s hard to convince people that the information was spread by the Azerbaijani side, since the content is in Armenian and the person who shared it does not seem to be a fake user.
“After the first stage of the operation, the Azerbaijani media (such as armiya.az) disseminates the information in Azerbaijani or Russian languages, citing the source of information (in this case Anush Danielyan). This is also intended for the domestic audience to show that the situation in the Armenian army is very bad and so on. Similarly, fake news is spread about "victims", "shootings as a result of interpersonal conflicts", "the confrontation between the Karabakh people and Armenians" and others,” he said.
The user also posted a screenshot of Facebook post by Anush Danielyan alleging 11 civilians and 27 soldiers have been taken to an Artsakh hospital with coronavirus symptoms.
Alen Ghulyan says the speared of the fake news about coronavirus is not accidental, since the coronavirus situation in Azerbaijan is actually more serious.
“They have hundreds of infected people which is not reported. In some areas on the border with Iran, the situation is catastrophic. Intercommunity roads in that area are closed, with subdivisions of internal troops deployed in those regions to ensure public order. Some reports suggest that servicemen of the State Border Service are also among the fatalities and the infected people,” Ghulyan wrote.

The Armenian Foreign Ministry has called out Azerbaijan for the deliberate attempts to escalate the situation at the shared border with Armenia.
In a statement the ministry has stressed the need for establishment of international risk reduction mechanisms is an important priority of the Nagorno Karabakh peace process.
The comments come in the wake of a ceasefire violation by the Armed Forces of Azerbaijan in the Nakhijevan section of the state borders with Armenia that saw Armenian serviceman Zohrab Sianosyan shot dead by sniper fire.
“This is yet another attempt of Azerbaijan to intentionally escalate the situation on the Armenian-Azerbaijani state border: on March 6 Azerbaijani armed forces attempted an infiltration in Tavush region of Armenia,” the Foreign Ministry said.
“Regular attempts by Azerbaijan to escalate the situation on the state border with Armenia, to expand the geography of escalation and refrain from applying the existing mechanisms of de-escalation attest to the deliberate nature of Azerbaijan’s attempts to undermine regional security and peace,” the statement reads.
Such actions, the Ministry said “demonstrate that the establishment of international risk reduction mechanisms is an important priority of the Nagorno Karabakh peace process, and the implementation of agreements reached in that regard is a necessary condition for the advancement of the peace process.
