Hostilities between Armenia and Azerbaijan have reportedly flared up overnight, with reports of gun and mortar fire coming from the border.

Both Azeri and Armenian defense ministries accused each other of provoking the escalation. Azerbaijan said Armenian troops opened fire 127 times over 24 hours along the border. They are using mortars and heavy machine guns, the statement released on Saturday said.

Armenia said Azeri troops went on the offensive overnight and are using tanks, artillery and military aircraft.

I have just recently started looking into some of what is going on and am not really familiar but think I found some writers of that news worth looking at . Georgia Trafficks Weapons, and I Have the Documents, Claims Former Georgian Colonel
journal-neo.org... The next piece deals with Iran and them rebuilding as the sanctions are lifting . Yerevan and Tehran are preparing for a breakthrough
journal-neo.org...

And the last one is dealing with the conflict in OP . It would be interesting if members more familiar with that region to verify if these pieces are even close to the truth Karabakh Conflict: It’s All About One Man and Currency Values

He would not approval of Azerbaijan escalation nor the current attack that they caused with the dead Armenians troops.

Its quite clear Turkey is itching to start a conflict.

Putin has been pouring men and equipment into Armenia to encircle Turkey. He told the Az gov that this is not a move against them, seems Turkey got a little to nervous and set them off.

CSTO: Russia sells weapons to Armenia and Azerbaijan based on principle of parity

Russia has been arming both countries and now they are calling for peace ?! April fools jokes getting better and better.

If the Russians didn't sold them the weapons, someone else's would have.
The US sold weapons to both parties during the Malvinas war and the Iran/Iraq conflict ...

A least they both use the same 'tools'.

So that's what the Turkey-EU deal was for! Meanwhile media in Europe and the US is busy focusing on nonsensical panama leaks. At least, as a positive outcome, Italian minister Boschi was illuminated by the Illuminati regarding the "Powerful oil lobby"... WoW what a rush, Putin must be shaking on his kremlin chair!!!

Israeli Arms Exporter Demonstrated Drone to Azeri Buyers by Attacking Armenian Army Positions


Israeli drone manufacturer, Aeronautics, sought a contract to sell military drones to Azerbaijan. Though the Orbiter 1K drone the Azeris contemplated buying had been tested in battle, in order to seal the deal, they demanded to see the “suicide” drone attack an Armenian army position. The government even planned to broadcast video of the attack on national TV. But there was a wrinkle in the plan. The drone operators who were to orchestrate the flight and attack refused to carry it out.

Aeronautics executives, desperate to seal the lucrative deal, pressured the pilots, warning them they would torpedo an important commercial sale. But the drone operators remained firm in their refusal. The executives were forced to arm, fly and conduct the entire mission themselves. Though they attempted to attack the Armenians, the flight failed and no one was injured. Though not for lack of trying.

One of the two pilots who refused to carry out orders quit the company and the second is in the process of leaving.

Melman says that a complaint has been filed with the Israeli defense ministry (he doesn’t say by whom) because the export license granted to the company explicitly prohibits Israeli personnel taking part in any military action between hostile parties. In other words, Israel just sells them the weapons to kill each other. It doesn’t do the killing directly. This way it can keep accusations of military intervention at arm’s length. The ministry doesn’t permit either direct or indirect intervention of this kind. Though of course selling the parties these weapons is a form of intervention.

There was a video of this attack from that week. There was a thread on it, but the video there was removed. There is always another though
