Turkish Air Force's F-16 jet after take off

BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:10 P.M.) – The spokesman for the Armenian Ministry of Defense, Artsron Hovhannisyan, said that Turkish F-16 fighters are flying bilaterally, over the conflict zone in Karabakh.

“I do not want to talk about the number of F-16s in our region, but they fly in bilaterally,” Hovhannisyan said in a press statement today.

He said that Armenia has evidence that a Turkish F-16 plane shot down an Armenian Su-25 attack plane over Armenia’s airspace yesterday. He expressed his readiness to present this evidence to the international experts.

“Only the F-16 can shoot down an attack aircraft flying at such altitudes at a distance of 60 kilometers. Its AMRAAM missiles can hit the target at a distance of 90-100 kilometers. As for the MiG-29 (which is in the Azerbaijani air force),” he said, “they are not able to. ”

Before that, the press secretary of the Armenian Ministry of Defense, Shushan Stepanyan, stated that a Turkish F-16 fighter had shot down an Armenian Su-25 bomber in the airspace of Armenia. But the Azerbaijani authorities denied this information.

Azerbaijan later claimed that the Armenian Su-25 jet crashed with another aircraft during its take off on Tuesday.

CSTO intervention is more and more likely to happen : I don’t think Putin will accept things “developing” like in Syria in any CSTO country, especially the smaller one : it would discredit both the alliance and Russia. It’s like when Erdog believes EU would let down Cyprus or Greece ‘coz Turkey generates more trade: things don’t work this way
