Azerbaijan fired 150 missiles at Armenia in 5 minutes (VIDEO)
Azerbaijan has dealt the most powerful missile strike against Armenia since the beginning of the aggravation of the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh. In a few minutes, more than 150 missiles were fired towards the enemy. Azerbaijan published a video of the shelling.

The footage shows only a fragment of a massive attack on the territory of the Kubatly region of the unrecognized republic. “All in all, about 150 shells were fired, presumably from the Grad multiple launch rocket system (MLRS)”б - writes avia.pro.

Earlier, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev promised Armenia to avenge the missile strike on the Azerbaijani city of Ganja. As a result of this shelling a week ago, 13 people were killed and another 52 civilians were injured. About 20 houses in the central part of the city were either completely or partially destroyed.

The publication notes that despite the massive attack, the enemy managed to avoid serious losses, however, he had to leave his positions. The publication predicts that without the support of the Russian army, the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh will be completely occupied by the Azerbaijani armed forces in the next one or two weeks. Earlier, Russia connected its radars and radar stations to Armenia's air defense system, which made military equipment more accurate. Within a few hours after the connection, the Russian-made air defense systems in service with Armenia were able to identify and destroy five Turkish drones.

Let us recall that the conflict on the border of the two countries erupted with renewed vigor since the end of September. Azerbaijan considers this territory its own, illegally occupied by Armenia. Even before the collapse of the Soviet Union, Nagorno-Karabakh announced that it was leaving the Azerbaijan SSR. Since then, the status of the territory has remained unresolved. Recently Armenia announced that it will be ready to recognize the independence of this territory if it helps to smooth out the conflict.
