Armenia to submit data on Azerbaijan Armed Forces drone invasions to CSTO

The Ministry of Defense of Armenia will submit to the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) all the necessary data on the penetration of four unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) on the territory of the republic the night before, October 1. The representative of the Defense Ministry Artsrun Hovhannisyan informed about it on Friday.

“We will consistently present all the necessary information, as the military says, in accordance with the established procedure,” the Armenian Defense Ministry said.
Speaking about the presence of Turkish military equipment on the Azerbaijani side, the representative of the Defense Ministry reminded that the Bayraktar drones and T-300 Kasirga multiple rocket launchers of the Turkish Armed Forces have already been mentioned. Hovhannisyan noted that there would be reports of other Turkish weapons used in combat operations both in the Karabakh conflict zone and against military targets and populated areas on Armenian territory.

As EADaily reported, the press service of the Armenian Defense Ministry earlier specified the information about UAVs of the Azerbaijani army shot down over the territory of the republic on October 1. “According to the geolocation data of Armenian air defense (AF), as of 00.15 (October 2) the Armenian army has shot down four UAVs: one in Kotayk region and three more in Gegharkunik region. All the drones shot down were reconnaissance drones. Thus, a total of 7 enemy drones have been shot down in Armenia’s airspace to date,” the military department said.

We would like to remind you that on September 27 Azerbaijan started intensive artillery fire at settlements in Nagorno-Karabakh, including Stepanakert, passing to the offensive along the whole line of contact in the Karabakh conflict zone. The operations, called “counteroffensive” in Baku, are conducted in the northern, eastern, and southeastern parts of the front. Martial law and general mobilization have been declared in Armenia. Azerbaijan has also announced martial law and partial mobilization on its territory.
