BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:20 P.M.)  – The Azerbaijani Ministry of Defense warned on Thursday, that its forces could carry out a precision strike on the Metzamur power station in western Armenia if Yerevan decided to hit Azerbaijani strategic installations.

In response to Armenian threats to hit the Mingchevir water tank in northern Azerbaijan, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry spokesman, Colonel Waqif Dargankhali, said:

“The Armenian side should not forget that the latest missile systems available to our army are capable of hitting the Metzamur Atomic Energy Station with high accuracy, which will turn into a great tragedy for Armenia.” .

These statements come against the backdrop of the military escalation in the border region between Armenia and Azerbaijan since last Sunday, which the two sides have accused each other of causing.

Moscow and Tehran have confirmed that they would do their utmost to reduce the tension between Baku and Yerevan, while Turkey aligned with Azerbaijan, has vowed to make Armenia “pay the price” for clashing with Azerbaijan.

Seems like the whole world is gearing up for war. I wonder what the match strike will be in which World War III begins. We all know its coming.

Armenia has Russian bases and is allied with Russia. They’d better think twice : Turkey won’t take the risk of direct clashes with Russia!

Such an attack would nonetheless be a war-crime but… nonetheless Azeris are likely to be victims of the fallouts too, then they won’t like at ALL UNSC reaction : even the Chinese won’t accept such thing!

Azeris will end at best with sanctions similar to what Iraq got 1991-2003 if UNSC doesn’t orders a NATO intervention and be sure Russia will team, maybe even the Chinese too. Dargankhali is insane.
