BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:40 A.M.) – The Artsakh Defense Army (ADA) launched a counter-attack in southern Karabakh on Tuesday to retake the ground they lost to the Azerbaijani Armed Forces.

According to the Armenian Ministry of Defense, the Artsakh Defense Army attacked the Azerbaijani defenses along the southern front-lines, resulting in some advances after heavy clashes on Tuesday.

The Armenian Ministry of Defense did not specify where the advances were made, but video footage of the attack was released and shared on YouTube.

The footage shows the destruction of enemy forces in southern Karabakh, and also shows the fighters taking a position repulsed from the Azerbaijani troops.

Since the announcement about the counter-offensive, the Azerbaijani Ministry of Defense has denied any advances by the Armenian troops.

According to the Azerbaijani Ministry of Defense, their forces are in control of the situations at the northern and southern fronts, while also claiming new advances at Zenglan.

For their part, the Karabakh authorities did not confirm the withdrawal of their forces from Zenglan, but stated that fierce battles are taking place in the vicinity of the city, as well as the towns of Ishkhanadzor and Megnavan near the Armenian border.

Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev further said that the Azerbaijani forces destroyed four Armenian S-300 missile systems since the beginning of the recent escalation in Karabakh at the end of last month.

I do not see why Wilson’s 14 points, that are about the self determination of the nations, do not apply to the Armenians in the autonomous Nagorno-Karabakh Oblast that is the named Artsakh Republic since 2017. Autonomous regions (Russian Автономная область, Awtonomnaja oblast ‘, abbreviated AO) offered smaller peoples limited cultural autonomy within the Union Republics of the USSR. In theory, the autonomous regions were states. After the declaration of independence of the two Soviet republics of Armenia and Azerbaijan from the Soviet Union, the administration of the Autonomous Oblast also declared full independence as the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic on September 3,… Read more »

4) The West sees the Azeri autocrats as allies against Iran and Russia. The oil exports help to blind the eyes of such countries as Germany and Israel. And the Azeri have bribed all. The European Stability Initiative (ESI) reported in 2012 how, since Azerbaijan joined the Council of Europe, 30 to 40 MEPs have been invited to travel to Azerbaijan every year with gifts, including expensive caviar (price 1400 euros per kilo), valuable silk carpets, gold, silver and with large sums of money were heaped on. Numerous members of the German Bundestag also had luxury trips to Baku financed… Read more »
