Turks preferred to relocate their F-16s away from the Armenian border


After the President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev had to agree with obvious и recognize the presence on the territory of their country of the F-16 Turkish Air Force, the Turks preferred to relocate their fighters away from the border with Armenia. They moved the F-16 from Ganja International Airport to an airfield near the city of Gabala.


Ganja is located in the western part of the country, and quite close to Armenia and the front line in Nagorno-Karabakh. Periodically there arrive Armenian missiles. The Turks were afraid that sooner or later these fighters would be destroyed.

Gabala, on the other hand, is the north of Azerbaijan, which is far from the Armenian OTRKs, but rather close to the Russian border. There was once the capital of the ancient state of Caucasian Albania.


According to the information available on the Web, the Turks keep 6 F-16 units on the territory of Azerbaijan. They stayed there after large joint exercises held by the Turkish and Azerbaijani Armed Forces in late July - early August 2020.


We remind you that after the start of the counter-offensive operation of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces in Nagorno-Karabakh at the end of September, Baku categorically refused to recognize the presence of Turkish fighters on its soil. Now the Azerbaijani authorities say that these fighters are needed in case of foreign aggression against their country.

    Out of harm's way. A month ago, Azerbaijan lost the remnants of its independence. Now Turkey and Israel rule over there, under the watchful eye of London. They decide what, where to stand.

    There was once the capital of the ancient state of Caucasian Albania.

    There was a lot of things there, for example Persia, and more recently there was a radar station, then it was politely but persistently asked from there. 7 years ago they said something like this.



    I think that Albania was mentioned not by chance, with a hint that something like this may appear again, but not Christian, but Islamic. So, nothing will be there. There is no force capable of creating a separate strong and independent state on this territory and is not expected. The Sultan's guts are thin, except for ambition. At the moment, only Russia can maintain relative order in this territory. I suppose to this and we will come with time.

    Azerbaijan is slowly but surely turning into a colony of Turkey. Does Aliyev really not understand that Turkey does not have, did not have and will not have friends. For Turkey, a friend is Turkey itself and everything, there is truth, whose allies, after use, will wrap up, devour completely and still say that they should remained.

    Israel bluntly said that they do not care about everything that happens in NK, Israel only cares about Iran and everything. And England, yes, she settled in Turkey sooo long ago and continues to spoil Russia.
    But Turkey is a battering ram of England against Russia in the South Caucasus and not only, to summarize, we can say England with the hands of Turkey will stagger to try Russia around the entire perimeter!

      I agree,

      Turkey is a battering ram of England against Russia

      - but this is half the truth, and the other half is that Azerbazhan, in turn, is Turkey's ram in the South. Caucasus and Wed. Asia. And let's not forget who controls the oil in Baku. This is British BP.
