Armenia Azerbaijani war breaks out!
The Azerbaijani Defense Ministry announced on the morning of September 27, a counteroffensive “across the front line” with Armenia, in response to an attack ” with large-caliber weapons, mortars and artillery of various calibers.”
According to Baku, the Armenian Armed Forces “carried out large-scale provocations” and subjected the villages and Azerbaijani Army positions in the front area to “intensive bombardment”. The agency also reported that there are deaths and injuries among the civilian population, without specifying their exact number.
In this regard, the Azerbaijani military indicated that they destroyed 12 units of the OSA air defense systems of the Armenian forces, but they lost one helicopter, whose crew managed to save themselves.
For its part, the Ministry of Defense of Armenia stated that its forces shot down 2 Azerbaijani helicopters and 3 drones and indicated that the attack occurred in response to an aggression by Azerbaijan.
“All responsibility rests with the political-military leadership of Azerbaijan,” said Armenian Defense Ministry spokeswoman Shushan Stepanyan. The Ministry also specified that it is a “counteroffensive operation” planned in advance by the Armed Forces of Azerbaijan and described the attack as “a prepared provocation.”
The recent escalation on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, led to the Armenia Azerbaijani war breaking out on July 12, when both sides accused each other of attacks and mutual provocations.
The clashes have caused casualties on both sides: Azerbaijan confirmed the death of 12 of its military, including a General, while Armenia reported the death of four troops and at least 20 wounded.
In this Armenia Azerbaijani war, both parties accused each other of attacking civilian towns on the border and at the same time, deny having done so.
In the context of this military escalation, Russia urged Armenia and Azerbaijan to show restraint and strictly adhere to the ceasefire regime. Moscow expressed its willingness to provide the necessary assistance to stabilize the situation on the border between the two countries.
