The presence of Turkish F-16s in Azerbaijan has been proven


The presence of two F-16 fighters and a military transport aircraft CASA CN-235 of the Turkish Air Force was recorded on the territory of the Ganja International Airport (Azerbaijan). The New York Times journalist Christian Tribert informed the public about this on his Twitter account.


It should be noted that official Baku categorically denied the presence of Turkish aircraft on its territory after the start of the counter-offensive operation in Nagorno-Karabakh. However, satellite images from Planet Labs, presented by the American journalist, tell a different story.

The journalist is sure that the presence of Turkish aircraft at the Azerbaijani airport testifies to Ankara's participation on the side of Baku in the conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh. In his opinion, the militants brought by Turkey are already fighting side by side with the Azerbaijani troops.




Pictures taken on October 3, 2020. If you don't look closely at them, we can assume that they depict not outdated F-16s, but modern Italian M-346 trainers, of which Azerbaijan has 10 units. The silhouettes of the F-16 and M-346 are similar with a fuzzy picture, and if the Turkish military transport CN-235 was not nearby, then the version with the Italian TCB would have a high degree of probability. The escort of a link (including incomplete) of fighters by a transport aircraft is practiced in almost all air forces of the countries of the world. In addition, the official Yerevan previously announced that the F-16 was in Azerbaijan.

Whether the fighters took part in any hostilities is difficult to say. But they could get to Ganja only through the airspace of "sovereign" Georgia, which is not the first time light up in complicity with Baku and Ankara.

    Can any of the site visitors reasonably explain why the participation of the Russian Aerospace Forces in the Syrian war on the side of Assad is good, and the participation of Turkish aviation in the war of Azerbaijan against the unrecognized NKR is bad?

                    And Putin has nowhere to rush. The more Azerbaijanis kill Armenians, the clearer and faster the Armenians realize that they should not have ridden on the Maidan, and the Azerbaijanis will suffer image losses.
                    International sympathies are not on the side of Azerbaijan. And there will be no objectivity of assessments. Don't you think that everyone in Russia loves Armenians and hates Azerbaijanis so much? Or vice versa? The majority of the population will be happy if they both withdraw and go to fight.
                    In minus:
                    - Armenians have an anti-Russian policy of recent years and Pashinyan's incompetence in general and especially in the development of the army.
                    - among the Azerbaijanis - the first to start was both an ally (and a provocateur) Turkey. The more they hammer on the peace, the worse the attitude will be. The first began to use cluster munitions.
                    But the saddest thing is Turkey as an ally. This is not even my position, but of all "civilized" humanity. Turkey has no allies even among Muslims. Well, Qatar, the same outcast, because he invested money in it.

                      Let me tell you a little secret, which is not even a secret: even if the most pro-Russian leadership were sitting in Yerevan today, the Russian Federation would still not fit in with the NKR. The reasons are obvious.

                      The first were started by the Bolsheviks, when they arbitrarily annexed the territories inhabited by Armenians by 90% to Azerbaijan. This is the typical stupidity of Soviet nationality policy, the fruits of which future generations will reap. There are a lot of examples of such "wisdom", the transfer of Crimea, populated mainly by immigrants from Russia after the deportation of the Tatars, etc. minorities, in 1954. Ukraine is also one of them. Azerbaijanis after the defeat in the war for Karabakh in the beginning. The 90s never concealed that their goal was to build a new army and win back what was captured by the Armenians. Apparently, they considered that the time had come, and the Turks were only a kindred people, supporting their blood brothers.

      Well, they would say: yes, our planes are there, we want to help the ally return NK. So why are they silent? And immediately there will be those who want to help Cyprus return Northern Cyprus to its "home harbor".
      Nobody will cling to the wording now, everything will be interpreted aside that Erdogan is bad and Turkey is wrong. Azerbaijan has already gone to Moscow to negotiate with Armenia. I realized that if he refused - the UN Security Council, a peacekeeping operation, then everything is bad.

    It is clear from the unanimous statements of certain commentators that Israel supports the Azerbaijani side in liberating its territories. The moral of all, it means that the Palestinians are right in their efforts to also liberate their territories, and only powerful sponsors with weapons and other volunteers are lacking to equalize opportunities ... Such "liberation" wars in the post-Soviet space, and not only, promise a lot of blood and trouble ...

      Israel in the Karabakh conflict observes neutrality, the sale of arms to Azerbaijan is a completely legitimate action. Let me remind you that the Russian Federation also sells its military-industrial complex products to Azerbaijan.

      The Palestinians have no "territories" of their own, just as there is no such people - "Palestinians", it was invented by the KGB.

        "The Palestinians have no" territories "of their own, just as there is no such people -" Palestinians ", it was invented by the KGB."
        In the XI - IX centuries. BC. in the Middle East there was a kingdom of Palistin. The Bible repeatedly mentions Philistia and the Philistines.
        In AD 135 Roman emperor Hadrian, after suppressing the Bar-Kokhba uprising, ordered to call the territory between modern Tel Aviv and the Jordan River Syria Palestinian.
        The Byzantine Empire included the provinces of Palestine Prima, Palestine Secunda, Palestine Tertsia.
        The Arabs called this country Falstyn.
        After WWI, Great Britain used the name Palestine to name its mandate territory.
        Well, the people living in Palestine are Palestinians.
        I'm proud of the KGB! It turns out that not only US presidents are elected, but the Bible was written and ruled by the Roman emperors.

            And you were kicked out of there more than two thousand years ago. Since then, there has been no trace of either Judea or Israel. Palestine and the people of Palestine, the Palestinians.

      I will surprise you! Jews settled on the western bank of the Jordan when not only there was no KGB, but even Kievan Rus! Worse, even the concept of an Arab did not yet exist.

      People with haplogroup R1a (Aryan, Slavic, Russian) have been living in the European part of Russia for at least 4 years (Fatyanovo culture).
      From there they spread south, west and east. In particular, about 60% of Levites have the R1a haplogroup. According to DNA analysis, the Levites left the Middle East 2 to 200 years ago, like the rest of the Jews.
      In addition to the Levites and the higher castes of India, the haplogroup R1a is in the ancient Arab clans. For example, the story is the same as with the Levites - the Quraish clan, where the Prophet Muhammad comes from, all the righteous caliphs, the Umayyad clan and the vast majority of key figures of early Islam.
      It is enough just to look closely at the photo of Bashar al-Assad. His eyes are blue and he does not look like a Semit at all. And his wife, in no way looks like a Semitic. Show her photo and say that this beautiful woman from Kursk or Voronezh, no one will doubt.
      So, do not try to measure antiquity.
      And about Kievan Rus, we can say that it was when Jews from the Middle East were kicked out for 1000 years.
