Defence Redefined

Clashes between the Defence Army of the Republic of Artsakh and the Azeri Forces continue in the province of Nagorno-Karabakh with unprecedented fury.

The defence of the Armenian forces is a headache for the Azeris, as any progress leads to serious losses and damage to both manpower and military equipment.

So far, according to all reports, the Armenian defence in the north of Nagorno-Karabakh has been maintained successfully and quite easily, but things in the south have begun to change.

Some reports suggest that the Azeris may have been able to penetrate these defence forces to the south, which would explain why fighting is currently taking place around Jabrayil, which is behind the main Armenian lines of defence.

This explains why the two sides are rushing with additional troops to the line of contact: The Armenians will try to hold back and counterattack, while the Azeris will try to improve their position and gain more territory under their control.

The weather in the area is not suitable for air operations, which means that the men on the ground will not have air support.

Today, the Armenian Ministry of Defence announced that it had destroyed the fuel reserve of the Azerbaijani forces and in a video posted on social media, it claimed that a large number of Azerbaijani military units had withdrawn from the region.

According to the Ministry, after the destruction of the fuel reserve, opportunities were created for the redeployment of the defence forces and the repulse of the attackers. During the night, the Armenian Ministry of Defence claims that it repulsed a large-scale attack by Azerbaijani forces in the southeastern direction of the Nagorno-Karabakh province, causing heavy losses in manpower and military equipment. Nevertheless, the Ministry of Defence of Azerbaijan announces daily progress on the ground in Nagorno-Karabakh.



According to the Azeri ministry, their army continues to repel the artillery defence forces occupying outposts abandoned by Armenian soldiers.

In fact, as can be seen in a video published by the Ministry, the Azerbaijani forces seized 3 fully functional Russian T-72 tanks, which were abandoned by the Armenians.

Meanwhile, the two sides accuse each other of systematically bombing residential areas with cluster munitions and ballistic missiles. The capital of Artsakh, Stepanakert, has been under constant bombardment for several days, while Armenian President Nicole Pasinian called on the citizens of Azerbaijan to move away from military posts that are targets for Armenia.

This is the 11th day of the fighting and so far, the international community has expressed concern and called for a ceasefire on both sides. Turkey and Azerbaijan have made it clear that, in order to achieve this, the defence army must first lay down its arms and withdraw Armenian forces from Nagorno-Karabakh.

In any case, the two sides do not currently appear willing to sit down for talks to find a compromising solution.

Recall of Greek Ambassador to Athens.

The Greek Foreign Ministry delivered a strong protest to the Ambassador of Azerbaijan, while in Athens the Greek Ambassador N. Piperigos was recalled for consultations.

In a statement, the Foreign Ministry described the allegations of the Azerbaijani government about the alleged tolerance of the Greek State in preparing terrorist acts, efforts to recruit terrorist fighters and cyber attacks by the Greek government as completely non-existent and offensive.

In detail, the announcement of the Foreign Minister:

“Following the completely non-existent and offensive allegations of the Azerbaijani government about the alleged tolerance of the Greek State in preparation for terrorist acts, in attempts to recruit terrorist fighters and cyber-attacks from the Greek territory against Azerbaijan in Kazakhstan, in the context of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, a stern demarche was made to the Azeri Ambassador yesterday at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Following the speech, the Ambassador of Greece to Azerbaijan, Mr. N. Piperigos, was recalled to Athens for consultations, by decision of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nikos Dendias.”
