The Ministry of Defense of Armenia claimed on October 2 that its air-defense units had shot down more Azerbaijani warplanes over the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh.
According to the ministry, an Azerbaijani fighter jet and a drone were shot down over the northeastern part of Nagorno-Karabakh in the morning. During the noon, a second fighter jet was downed in the southeastern part of the region. Two drones were also shot down over the region’s northern part.
The Armenian MoD didn’t back its claims with any solid evidence. However, Shushan Stepanyan, Press Secretary of the ministry, shared a video allegedly showing the downing of an Azerbaijan helicopter a day earlier.
The Armenian MoD claims that its air-defense units have downed six fighter jets, ten helicopters and 110 drones over Nagorno-Karabakh, thus far.
Azerbaijan continues to deny losing any warplane over Nagorno-Karabakh. The country’s aerial assets, whether fighter jets or drones, are still highly-active over the region, despite the threat posed by Armenian air-defense units.
