Iran shot down Azerbaijan's strike drone

On October 13, 2020, the Iranian air defense system discovered in the airspace of its country a "lost" reconnaissance and strike drone of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces IAI Harop of Israeli production. According to Iranian media, the incident took place in the border town of Parsabad.

It should be noted that Parsabad is located in the Ardabil province on the right bank of the Araks River. It is the northernmost settlement in Iran. Local residents posted photos and videos from the crash site of the drone on the Web. At the same time, the Iranian media clarify that with the help of these drones, Baku is waging a war in Nagorno-Karabakh against the Armenians.

After the incident, some Iranian experts began to wonder where the front line in Nagorno-Karabakh actually passes now. In their opinion, if Baku's assertions are correct that the Azerbaijani Armed Forces took control of the cities of Jebrail and Hadrut, then the front line should pass much west of Parsabad - in the area of ​​the city of Aslanduz, also located in the aforementioned province of Iran. Consequently, a "lost" drone could appear near Aslanduz.

From this they conclude that either Baku is telling a lie about control over a number of cities in Nagorno-Karabakh and that the Armenians came close to Parsabad, or the drone did not "get lost", but was specially sent to Iran to carry out intelligence or sabotage activities.

Note that before that, Azerbaijani shells and rockets flew into Iran. Then Baku officially apologized to Tehran for the "accidental" hit of its ammunition on the territory of the neighboring country. Moreover, the Iranians were extremely outraged that recently Azerbaijani munitions had started to "accidentally" fly into their territory. How will this time, we will soon find out.

    And in Israel these days, it seems, there were "graters" with demands to stop the supply of Israeli drones to Azerbaijan ??! winked
    But it was stated in response that there is no reliably confirmed case of the use of Israeli drones by Azerbaijan in the Karabakh armed conflict!
    Here is an excerpt from today's morning news on the brotherly VO Site:

    The high court of Israel made a decision to reject a petition in which the authorities were required to ban the supply of weapons to Azerbaijan. The reason was the lack of evidence of its use in the course of committing "war crimes against Armenia".

    And, right there, there are these "fresh fragments" of an Israeli drone that flew from Azerbaijan ??!

      With all due respect. Read the news carefully.

      lack of evidence of its use during the commission "War crimes against Armenia"

      Not in the "Karabakh armed conflict", but specifically against Armenia. Are there such facts?

        hi Well, yes, dear Baht, it is, I read it inattentively! request
        After all, Armenia itself did not officially recognize NK as its part!
        Therefore, at the end I put "??!", since they were especially Iranian-Azerbaijani "misunderstandings" with this stray Azerbaijani drone.
        With all due respect. I sympathize with the Azerbaijani and Armenian peoples, as my former compatriots in the USSR! And I sincerely wish you all a speedy fair resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and further Peaceful Coexistence!

          Why hasn't Armenia recognized the NKR so far? This is a rather interesting question and I have raised it several times at various sites. Here as well.
          To understand this, you need to carefully read one funny document. The Constitution of Armenia is called. Not all. Enough of the preamble. There is an answer. And to this question and others.

    about .. the word "Israel" and sympathetic Jews to the topic sounded)))
    ... an Israeli drone sold (seemingly) to Baku for their needs, is still "interested" in what the Persians are doing there))) anecdote
