Iran launched several retaliatory artillery strikes on Azerbaijan's positions after a kamikaze drone violated the country's border. As a result, Azerbaijan lost several positions in Nagorno-Karabakh.

Earlier, Iran warned that if the military equipment of Azerbaijan continues to violate the borders of the state, the country will return fire. The warning was triggered. Earlier, Iran thwarted Azerbaijan's offensive operation in Nagorno-Karabakh in response to the shelling of Iranian territory, the enemy was forced to retreat. Then Baku apologized for the fact that the shells accidentally hit the territory of Iran, and promised to adjust the angle of fire.

"The drone, which was shot down now, purposefully flew towards one of the large settlements on the border. Probably, Azerbaijan wanted to transfer responsibility for the attack to Armenia", - writes The publication suggested that the blow from Iran fell on two detachments of the Azerbaijani military, which are probably lost.

Iran has previously stated that it supports Armenia in this war. If the country asks for military assistance, Iran will be ready to provide it. For this, tanks and artillery installations were pulled to the border.

The war in Nagorno-Karabakh has been going on since the end of September. Azerbaijan is trying to reclaim the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, which it considers historically its own. At the end of the 80s, the republic announced that it was leaving the Azerbaijan SSR, since that time, for almost 30 years, the status of this territory has remained uncertain.
