BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:25 P.M.) – Turkish attack drones were used against the Armenian military near the Azerbaijan border recently, the Russian online publication Avia.Pro reported, citing the Military Observer Telegram channel.

The Avia.Pro report said Turkish-made Bayraktar TB2 attack drone was used to launch airstrikes on Armenian territory, but the site was unable to provide an exact date and time.

“According to Russian sources, the Turkish Bayraktar TB2 attack unmanned aerial vehicles launched air strikes on the territory of Armenia. The exact date and time of the use of Turkish drones remains unknown; however, it is reported that the military command of Armenia paid great attention to this issue, especially against the background of Turkey’s threats to occupy the territory of Armenia.”

Quoting the Military Observer channel, Avia.Pro said: “Judging by the footage, one of the topics of the operational meeting at the Armenian Defense Ministry was the possible use of Turkish Bayraktar TB2 attack drones by the Azerbaijani Armed Forces.”

Since the information was limited, it is not known whether or not it was Turkey or Azerbaijan operating these drones against the Armenian military.

“It became known that Turkey had deployed at least six of its attack unmanned aerial vehicles, artillery, military, air defense systems, and even, according to some reports, militants from Syria, which may well indicate that the drones were used by the Turkish military, although at the moment there have been no statements in this regard either from Turkey or Azerbaijan,” Avia.Pro added.

Neither the Armenian, Turkish, nor Azerbaijani defense ministries have commented on these claims.

And what the h**l Russia did, is doing, or will it do about to protect and defend one of his allies like Armenia?
Taking Russia’s performance in Syria against Israel’s constant illegal attacks as an example, there is no doubt that Russia is the world’s worst ally, the cowardly and fearful ally on earth, but an expert on silly excuses to justify its cowardice.

The problem is that if one goes back to the original two articles, neither prove that these Turkish UAVs were even in the hands of Azerbaijan in mid-July. By the time what was only-suggested in the original two articles got to the writers of this article, the title changed to an affirmative “used”.

Yerevan, Armenia

Turkey is picking fight with all nations living in the vicinity.

Armenia is CSTO… Russia can’t afford to let a CSTO country down or will lose credibility…Actually, they can perfectly decide to simply invade Azerbaijan, and have their hands on Baku’s oil…

When Armenia became a CSTO member, it had to accept a provision that its membership only concerned its UN-recognized borders. During the conflict, most of the fighting was concentrated at the Line of Contact in Nagorno-Karabakh, and therefore outside the purview of the CSTO.

What Azeris can do with 12x MiG-29, 12x Su-25, 5x MiG-21, 17x Mi-35, 12x L-39. 2x S-300, 2x Buk, 2x Pechora. Well there are 1000 Igla, but how many launchers?
How long before air-superiority? 30 min?
There are 100x T-90; 470x T-72 and 95x T-55
Shouldn’t last long

Another point, especially w. Nakhchivan, there’d be 57km between Iraqi Kurdistan and lake Urmia then 90km between Nakhchivan and the same lake. If Kurds end controlling the area, it would cut the last hope for a Qatar-Iran =>Turkey=>EU gas pipeline… And Russia may even get US help for this, maybe even the EU. Ths may even reboot the Rojava thing. Any way, Baku oil fields alone worth the operation but if any pipeline plan is ruined, this is perfect for Russia
