The Armenian defense in the southern part of the Nagorno-Karabakh region seems to be collapsing as the advancing Azerbaijani forces are about to reach the strategic Lachin corridor.

On October 23, Azerbaijani troops were filmed near the village of Muradxanlı, which is located in about 15 km from this strategic area. Even if this Azerbaijani unit was just a field recognizance patrol and the main forces of the Turkish-Azerbaijani bloc still have to overcome Armenian resistance to reach the area, the fact of the Azerbaijani presence there marks the hard situation on the frontline for the Armenians.

The Lachin corridor is a mountain pass within the de jure borders of Azerbaijan, forming the shortest route between Armenia and the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (Republic of Artsakh). The cutting off of Lachin will destroy the remaining hopes of the Armenian side to achieve a military victory in the ongoing war. Meanwhile, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev announced that his forces took full control of the Azerbaijani-Iranian border after capturing the village of Aghband. The Azerbaijani leader also declared that the Armenians lost 21 more settlements in the districts of Zangilan, Fuzuli and Jabrayil.

The Armenian military denies the collapse of its defense lines in the south and claims that Azerbaijani units appearing on video are just sabotage parties. According to the Armenian side, various Azerbaijan troops tried to advance in the western, northern and northwestern directions, but all of these offensive attempts were repelled. The Azerbaijani military allegedly suffered heavy losses.

The Armenian side insists that the towns of Hadrut and Fuzuli are in fact not in the hands of Azerbaijan. It insists that various units of the Armed Forces of Azerbaijan penetrate into different settlements in the front-line zone trying to create panic and make selfies there. These groups, according to Armenian media, are very small and often run away from Armenian troops. The optimism of Armenian officials is at least surprising.

According to reports, Armenian troops left the town of Aghband with almost no resistance to the Azerbaijani Armed Forces supported by Turkish specialists and Syrian militants. This move was likely a result of the need to save personnel and keep at least some reserves needed on other parts of the frontline. The defending of the almost surrounded town makes no sense. Nonetheless, videos and photos appearing online indicate that Armenian sabotage groups are also active in the rear of the advancing Azerbaijani forces. In that area, if they have enough supplies and weapons, they would be able to deliver painful blows to the logistical convoys of the Turkish-Azerbaijani bloc. It is likely that his activity is a formal pretext behind the statements of the Armenian Ministry of Defense that Azerbaijan has not gained full control of the border with Iran.

Forces of Azerbaijan continue to take control of settlements and villages in the south of Karabakh. Most of them are empty as the locals (ethnic Armenians) know well what fate they could face. It seems that the south of Karabakh is already lost for Armenia.

The Azerbaijani advance along the border with Iran through the relatively flat ground (if one compares it with the rest of Karabakh) appears to be a success. Now the Azerbaijani military and its allies are working to fully secure the border with Iran and set conditions for an operation to capture the Lachin corridor. The ability or inability of Azerbaijan to capture Lachin could become another turning point in the war.

Under the current conditions, it seems that a relatively positive outcome of the conflict for Karabakh forces would be possible in the event of the involvement some third power that would provide them with direct military assistance. Nonetheless, this scenario remains unlikely as long as even Armenia, which for years has been using Karabakh as its own protectorate, is not hurrying up to do so. Some Armenian sources even claim that the Pashinyan government oriented towards the West and NATO has just opted to sell the contested region to Azerbaijan under some formal pretext to remove the unresolved territorial disputes factor and open a way towards the further ‘democratic’ transformation of Armenia that it desires so much.

Indeed, there is no doubt that the Azeris are waging this war wisely. Well, they had 30 years to prepare.

Death to Turks

Very wise to send your troops like cattle to be slaughtered just to take abandoned piles of rubbles and have Armenians make videos of your corpses and bomb your second largest city to pieces.

Free man

Apparently we observe different wars.
I have seen the Azeris conquer all of southern NK.
I hope the Armenians are not body lovers like you and they will finish the unnecessary killing soon.

Smedly

Not until the very last roach is exterminated. You started we will finish this!

Death to Turks

Yeah it’s a shame we have to waste the energy burying those animals.

John Brown

No need to slow down the advance for Lachin when you have 3 times the troops and equipment which are pooring in behind the advance. The additional troops, tanks etc. moving in can secure the area no problem.

BlueHeadLizard

I think is as you predicted weeks ago; first collapse of the Artzahk defence then rapid Azeri conquest.

Death to Turks

Armenians are great architects. Look at how beautifully they’ve redesigned ganja.comment image

Celebrating a war crime ?? Well what u can expect from an armenian.

Death to Turks

You can bomb our cities and execute civilians but we can’t haha hayvan

Khazarian II (merchant)

u started it with hodjali genocide also with hitting civilian buildings with ballistic missiles. u guys are like greeks when u start to loose the war, immediately start to hit civilian buildings. I guess fighting against soldiers is a very hard job so u guys killing civilians and celebrating that.

Death to Turks

You’re talking about thirty years ago when you little weak pigs got destroyed by us. Deal with it and stop crying. We will kill every Azeri and every turk we can.

Khazarian II (merchant)

Well I’m not cursing to u nor sending non sense videos which we have surrendering armenian soldiers crying for their life or tens of dead armenian soldiers. Because we are not uncivilised animals like u people.

Smedly

I thought you said we should surrender ( holding back laughter )

Now you are seeing the results of your filthy race. We are picking you off like flies on shit. You started this war and now you want to talk with manners? You uncivilized roaches are going to get your asses handed to you.

And last but not least Anana Sikim!

Khazarian II (merchant)

Pashinyan sends his soldiers like a sacrificial animals. They are about to encircled completly, therefore they will either surrender or hunt down by mop up operations. With that victory, Azerbaijan and Turkey will be neighbour so path of Turan will be open for Turkey. Which will undermine Russia’s influence on Turkic countries of Central Asia.

hththny

the “Turanian” project will sink faster than the Titanic lol.very soon.

Khazarian II (merchant)

People were saying similar things with N-K operation, we will see what will be happen.

hththny

it is not over yet. be patient

Khazarian II (merchant)

Even pro russian sources says its over. West cannot and will not come to help u, Mr. Putin not even opening the phones of pashinyan. Armenian soldiers will be canon fodder for the pashinyan’s orange revolution.

hththny

im not talking about N K, but If you don’t calm down.. you will be destroyed forever. not by “Mr Putin” , but the others, you naive tools.

Smedly

Roach motel called, they want to know our secret formula for killing roaches. It seems they have seen the performance of Armenian soldiers in exterminating roaches and thought we might be able to help.

Anana Sikim

Ahson

Don’t bullshit!…..What happened in Syria? Iran and Russia fucked you! You keep up this bullshit, Iran and Russia will fuck you again. Don’t try to get uppitty.

John Brown

Wrong. Russia gave the green light for Azer to attack because of the anti Russia coup Soros government in Armenia and the Azer shift to the Russian, Chinese, Iran block. See how Iran did not use the excuse of Azer stray fire hitting some Iranian villages to grab some territory. They are all in on it.

Turkey to be destroyed next as per the Yinon plan

Death to Turks

I will post more dead Azeri pictures for you animals to see your future

Slaughtering them after death would be pretty pointless.

Whacko

True, but they were slaughtered while still alive, imagine the last moments when they faced a horrible death.

May God the Father forgive their sins.

Jihadi Colin

You are a black propaganda Azeri troll. You are not Armenian, just pretending to be. Your purpose is to turn people against Armenia.

Death to Turks

That’s my purpose? My purpose is to show the azeri and turk and whoever else supports them trolls that they are not
some great victorious army marching on the Armenians who are “fleeing”

Armenians are fighting strong and hard against these animals who have committed atrocities against Armenians in the past from Sumgait and Baku and karabakh also. So by showing these images they can see and understand the toll they are facing. Their morale will weaken.

And if you think these pictures I have are gruesome or something you need to toughen up. I’m Armenian and support destruction of the turk invaders 100%.

Jihadi Colin

If you were Armenian you would have been the most incompetent propagandist ever. All you are doing is turning neutral people against your side by your racist ranting. You are exactly like the zionist Hasbarats that go on anti zionist fora and post anti Jewish racist rhetoric so as to turn people against the Palestinian cause. Since the zios are supporting Azerbaijan, you are probably trained by then as well.

Davki

Oh yes, and we’ve got a lot of those here!

Jens Holm

I hope its YOUR FAMILY

Death to Turks

No it’s you. Turk

Jens Holm

Maybee some should learn You what respect for the dead ones is and for the families which might recognize them.

Its probatly some kind of pornografy for You…

Death to Turks

I hope they do recognize it haha

Davki

Are you insane? You’re telling this person that you hope his family will be slaughtered?

cechas vodobenikov

it is bizarre that azeris justify the deaths of 7000 Azeri troops only to occupy villages inhabited by Armenians

Jihadi Colin

Are you seriously telling me that you believe the casualty claims of either side in this war?

Jens Holm

No its not. According to UN its a – autonome – of Azarbaidian. And those people has declared a state.

As usual You are wondering in Your own selfcreated dark. Its easy to find that information even for retards, because they made same kind of war not lang time ago …

Degrelle

What are you talking about? Its like you are using google translate and its failing horribly.

The Objective

Official Moscow stats says 2000 causalities on both sides. Considering the strategic gains of Azerbaijan, this war has been a disaster for Armenia.

John Brown

They are right about Pashinyan selling out NK and Armenia as he sends his soldiers to die like a sacrificial animals for Soros and Satan.

That third and fourth power even fifth would be Iran, Russia and China.

Nenad Vojinovic

It’s just as I thought. Armenia is heading to NATO and non of its members have disputed borders. That’s why Armenia sold Nagorno Karabakh to Azerbaijan. After Azeris capture Nagorno Karabakh I guess Armenia is about to put a blame on Russia for not providing military assistance. It makes sense.

Stev60

Some Armenian sources even claim that the Pashinyan government oriented towards the West and NATO has just opted to sell the contested region to Azerbaijan under some formal pretext to remove the unresolved territorial disputes factor and open a way towards the further ‘democratic’ transformation of Armenia that it desires so much.

Armenia is a non-entity territorially without Artsakh, which is the only piece of land that Armenia had any hope of getting back from the Turkics since the 1920’s. If it’s lost now then Armenia will be broken territorially and spiritually, and the Turks will have won, for ever. Shitting on the mass-graves and memories of the million-plus they murdered whilst still denying it – with Western, Russian, and Israeli collusion. Those latter 3 will be forever stained as Satanic scum who allowed it, making them co-conspirators in the Genocide of Armenia and Armenians by the Turks – not merely the denial – a truly accursed status, that will be punished by God and Fate with a vengeance.

BlueHeadLizard

Big win for the muslims coming as N-K flips from Christianism to Islam. Azeris and Turks have timed it well.
