Azerbaijani helicopter crashes in Iran after being shot down by Armenian forces: MoD

BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 A.M.) – The press service for the Ministry of Defense in the Republic of Karabakh reported on Thursday that an Azerbaijani helicopter was shot down by their forces in the Karabakh region.

According to the press secretary of the Armenian Ministry of Defense, Shushan Stepanyan, the Artsakh Defense Army (ADA) shot down an Azerbaijani helicopter, pointing out that it later crashed in Iranian territory.

“Today in the SE of the #Artsakh-Azerbaijani conflict zone (Lele Tepe), units of the #DefenseArmy shot down an enemy helicopter that crashed in the terr. of #Iran. Mod of the #Artsakh announces there is no element of intent. Ops take place close to Iran.

No footage or photos have been released as of yet to corroborate these claims.

Iran has not commented on the claim by the Armenian Ministry of Defense; however, the Islamic Republic has shot down at least two drones in the last 48 hours after they entered their territory.

Biden tweeted that the Trump administration “must also demand others — like Turkey — stay out of this conflict,” as we report here.

Metin Gurcan breaks down the military balance between Armenia and Azerbaijan, and the pivotal role that Russia could play with both parties.

"From a political standpoint," Gurcan writes, "it seems fair to assume that neither Armenia nor Azerbaijan can use air power and ballistic missiles without Russian consent. Apparently, Moscow has not given the nod — at least for now — to the deployment of warplanes and ballistic missiles, a step that marks the threshold of a conventional war."

Despite denials by Ankara and Baku, there are reports of Syrian jihadis joining the fray, sent there by Turkey. Such an intervention by Turkey risks escalation with Russia, writes Fehim Tastekin.

"Turkey’s involvement in the conflict could be considered an attempt to shore up domestic support,” Tastekin writes. "But if Moscow comes to believe that Ankara has ulterior motives such as expanding its Turko-Islamist influence to the south Caucasus as part of Erdogan’s neo-Ottoman ambitions, it won't stand idle."

Meanwhile, as Turkish-Israeli relations go from bad to worse, both Ankara and Jerusalem are backing Azerbaijan in the conflict. Armenia recalled its ambassador to Israel because of Israel’s selling arms to Azerbaijan, as we report here.

...what is a blast from the past; Turkey's policy toward this issue in 2009; amazingly Turkey had a Free(er) Press then.

...upclose and personal,



...does it matter which side this is; if it is for "Turkishness" these sides must pay?

...if you have the patience to watch the two Leaders speak, the body-language also says a lot.
