Riot brewing in Azerbaijan over remaining Turkish militants


In the context of the military confrontation in Nagorno-Karabakh, experts do not stop asking questions about the fate of Syrian mercenaries fighting for the interests of Baku and Ankara after the end of the war. According to a number of sources, Azerbaijan may leave jihadist groups on its land, as well as in the territories reclaimed in Artsakh, which is facing extreme discontent among local residents.


According to the non-governmental organization "Syrian Observatory for Human Rights" (SOHR), bases for the presence of Syrian mercenaries began to be created in Karabakh. On this basis, a misunderstanding arises between Baku and Ankara - the latter insists that in the ranks of these fighters there are many people from the Caucasus. There are indeed Chechens and Dagestanis among them, but, according to SOHR, most of the mercenaries are Turkomans from the Islamist pro-Turkish military units.

According to the "Observatory", just over two and a half thousand such fighters are in the service of Azerbaijan, 342 of whom returned to Syria and almost three hundred died in the NKR.

Baku's discontent is caused by several factors. One of them is the nuances of the mercenary religion. Most of the Islamists are devout adherents of Sharia law, which is not to the liking of secular Azerbaijanis. If jihadists remain on Azerbaijani territory, conflicts between them and ordinary residents of the country are not excluded. "Guests" are already beginning to teach Azerbaijanis "correct Islam."

In addition, Ankara views armed outsiders on Azerbaijani lands as an instrument of pressure on Ilham Aliyev, since the Azerbaijani president did not take into account the interests of Turkey when signing an agreement on the end of hostilities in Karabakh. Jihadists can, if necessary, be used to organize provocations against the troops of Azerbaijan, Russia, and even Iran.

      The Moor has done his job, the Moor can leave.

      ... The contradictions of the post-Soviet, more secular Azerbaijan with its regional neighbors will certainly come to light ... But the problem lies elsewhere, the foreign policy of Russian officials is so clumsy and destructive that questions arise reasonably. Yes, because it is not formed by Russians - Jews, Armenians and others in the main positions, with their own interests. When Russia is represented by Russians, foreign policy failures will replace successes ... As for Azerbaijan and others, there will be no rallying around Russia because Russia itself is stagnant and is not an example for friendship and cooperation for the same reasons ...

        I am absolutely sure that Erdogan's plans were precisely that the jihadists - the PROXY-long arms of Erdogan personally - planned for them to stay in Nagorno-Karabakh, replacing the local population there. Their families and relatives will come to them. They will settle in the abandoned houses of the same Azerbaijanis. Try to evict them later!

        The question even involuntarily arose. Was it worth Aliyev to get involved with the Erdogans in order to destroy Artsakh? After all, as a result of such resettlement of jihadists, both Nagorno-Karabakh and Azerbaijan can eventually be lost?

        Erdogan will never withdraw his jihadists from Azerbaijan! And Aliev cannot do anything about it!

          The contingent of brought jihadists is too small to create demographic problems, so temporary problems for Azerbaijanis can be created by their pressure to introduce Sharia law in Azerbaijan, but these are solvable problems, - the assistants paid off and until we meet again ...

          You will decide - either Artsakh or Nagorno-Karabakh. Both of these names do not legally exist. The first is the drive, the second is the actual designation of the territory.

        I support from the first to the last word. Even a point set in time.

    This very "observatory" reported that Russian Aerospace Forces were bombing hospitals and schools in Syria, that Assad was using chemical weapons, that Boeing was shot down by Russia.

    Azerbaijan can leave jihadist groups in its own land, as well as in the territories reclaimed in Artsakh, ..

    Maybe it was a kind of "green card" for the guests, they came, so to speak, helped to release them and stayed there to live in payment. Without them, this operation would have taken a little longer. Yes, in general, you can consider the option that some who, without the support of Turkey, with the tacit consent of Moscow, would receive snot from the Karabakh people. So local residents need to respect the laws of their country and the veterans of the liberators, because they will certainly have a certain role in the future to integrate these regions into their native Azerbaijani borders.

    According to the non-governmental organization "Syrian Observatory for Human Rights" (SOHR), in Karabakh

    Found a "truthful" source of information. Only "white helmets" are even truer

    The Moor has done his work; the Moor must leave.
    Aliyev will drive out the militants as soon as possible and gradually squeeze out the Turks. He no longer needs them in a military sense, and Azerbaijan does not need the extra ones, the gnawing of limited resources. Will bow ritually to them, and adieu.
    And Russia will help him in this in various ways and to catch him in different ways to move in this right direction.
    Since these comrades are also of no use to us, besides, they are so close.
