The Armenians finally launched two Iskander missiles at Azerbaijan

On November 9, 2020, footage of the launching of two Iskander-E missiles by the Armenians at the Azerbaijanis appeared on the Web. The recording was posted a few hours before signing by Armenia and Azerbaijan through the mediation of Russia agreement about bringing peacekeepers to Nagorno-Karabakh, the American online edition The Drive writes.

When this video was filmed is unknown. However, given the lack of information on launches earlier, the event definitely happened in recent days. The picture quality is poor, but the Iskander is quite distinguishable.

Prior to that, the Armenians have repeatedly carried out solitary и paired launches from OTRK 9K72 Elbrus and 9K79-1 Tochka-U. But the AOC has such in service. In turn, the Armed Forces of Azerbaijan used Israeli OTRK LORA.

This day was eventful. In the afternoon, it was reported from Baku that the Azerbaijani army took control of the strategically important city of Shushi, which is the ancient capital of the region, located on the "road of life" linking Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh. In the evening, Azerbaijanis accidentally shot down a Russian Mi-24 helicopter in the airspace of Armenia. This happened near the border with the Nakhichevan Autonomous Republic, located far from the combat zone. Baku already admitted his guilt, expressed condolences to the families of the dead Russians and promised to pay compensation.

As for the agreement signed by the parties, there are no obvious concessions from Azerbaijan. How long it will last is difficult to predict. One thing is clear - Baku has achieved significant military success and consolidated it diplomatically.

    To be honest, nothing is clear from the article. Some kind of mishmash: missiles, a helicopter, diplomats.
    The author, forgive me, but the title and the content ... Well, they don't go together. The lead is sustained in the stated direction, and then ... Goats, rams - what is jumping there? Cockroaches? People read you. Write clearly and clearly on the topic originally stated.
    If the beginning is about Armenians, then it is impossible to end with Azerbaijan.

      You have some kind of mess in your head. I reread your message three times, but I still don’t understand what doesn’t suit you.

      If the beginning is about Armenians, then it is impossible to end with Azerbaijan.

      Well, maybe you can't. But we can.

        It was possible to write this in a personal message. I don't want to teach you - be offended - but in the first year of journalism, no! even before writing a creative work when entering this faculty, they explain the structure of the text expected from the future journalist, the skeleton on which the article is put on. If you didn’t know, I’ll tell you a secret: in good journalism there are strict templates, the break of which is bad manners. And to declare that others are not allowed, "but we can" is the height of unprofessionalism. You should have heard everything that my wife, a lecturer at the Department of Journalism, says about your articles.

        - this is how illiterate schoolchildren write, but not editors. I left journalism 7 years ago. I'm not going to return.

    The rockets were indeed launched. But they were shot down. Explosions were heard over Baku that night. Debris fell near the capital. Lastly, they wanted to kill (as in Ganja) as many civilians as possible.
