Has World War III started amidst the CoronaVirus pandemic? The fear is being raised after Armenia and Azerbaijan came face to face. India China border standoff has already kept the world on the edge. Tension has persisted in both countries for several months.
The question that, has World War III started is being asked across the globe. Amit the COVID-19 pandemic two of the biggest superpowers India and China are face-to-face amid LAC border tensions for several months.
Meanwhile, Armenia -Azerbaijan war has erupted more concern.
Experts believe there is a huge possibility of this war taking a bigger form in the coming days because Russia is going to take an entry in it.
Can give an attack order
Given the kind of atmosphere, Russian President Vladimir Putin may order an attack on Turkey. Because Russia is with Armenia while Turkey is advocating for the Muslim country Azerbaijan.
It is reported that Turkey and Pakistan are sending terrorists to fight on behalf of Azerbaijan. If Turkey orders an attack, a terrible war will begin between Russia and Turkey and the world will also be joined by other superpowers.
Scene of destruction
War has been going on for the last four days in Azerbaijan and Armenia, two small countries along the border of Iran-Turkey.
The pictures of the explosions and the devastation that came from the battlefield are very distressing. At the border of Azerbaijan and Armenia, these days, only the explosion sound is heard round the clock.
Azerbaijan is a Muslim-majority country while Christians live in large numbers in Armenia.
This is the root of the dispute
The major reason for the war between Armenia and Azerbaijan is the Nagorno-Karabakh region. Azerbaijan describes the mountainous region as its own, while Armenia has its occupation. The area has been under Armenia’s occupation since their fight ended in 1994.
In 2016 too, there was a bloody war between the two countries over this piece of land, in which 200 people were killed. Now once again both countries are face to face. Both countries were part of the USSR.
This is a matter of concern
Both sides have started gathering troops at the border. Armenia has claimed to have shot down four Azerbaijan helicopters. Because of the crisis, along with the imposition of martial law in some areas of Azerbaijan, curfew orders have also been given in major cities.
It is a matter of concern that Russia, Turkey, France, Iran, and Israel are also in danger of being involved in this battle of Armenia and Azerbaijan, and that is why the whole world is feared that is maybe starting of the World War Three.
Azerbaijan Claims Destruction Of Armenian S-300 System. Number Of Reported War Casualties Reaches Thousands
On September 30, the Azerbaijani-Armenian war entered its third day with another increase in casualties and victorious communiques from both sides.
In the morning, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry claimed that its forces had put out of service an Armenian S-300 long-range air defense system near the village of Shushakend in the Khojaly District of the Nagorno-Karabakh Region. How the long-range system might have appeared near the contact line in the contested region remains a mystery. Unfortunately, the Azerbaijani troops and media units at the site were not able to film a video to explain the situation. Apparently, their phones and cameras must have run out of power.
Meanwhile, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry announced that its forces had killed or injured up to 2,300 Armenian soldiers or officers, as well as eliminated up to 130 battle tanks and other equipment pieces, over 200 artillery guns and rocket launchers, 25 air defense systems, 6 HQs, 5 weapon depots, up to 50 anti-tank weapons and 55 vehicles.
The Azerbaijani side insists that its forces have victoriously repelled Armenian attacks in the Madagiza area. Clashes, artillery duels and drone strikes are being reported along the entire contact line in the contested region.
Earlier, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry reported that its artillery strikes pounded positions of the 1st battalion of Armenia’s 5th Motorized Rifle Regiment near Gasangaya in the Tartar area and the 1st battalion of the 6th Motorized Rifle Regiment in the Talysh area. Azerbaijan claims that the Armenian military suffered heavy losses and has been facing difficulties in finding equipment to organize the evacuation of the dead and wounded.
As of September 30, the rhetoric of the Azerbaijani side shifted from declaring regular gains in the battle against Armenian forces to claiming that Armenian attacks on positions captured in the first day of the war had been successfully repelled. This, as is typical of war-time propaganda, attempts to deflect from the lack of notable gains on the ground despite the successful and active use of artillery, Turkish Bayraktar TB combat drones and Israeli Harpy loitering munitions. The Azerbaijani media has also been actively preparing the nation for a prolonged war by releasing multiple reports and explanations that Azerbaijan should be interested in a war of attrition to exhaust Armenian forces and to teach the Armenians a ‘lesson’.
The Armenian Defense Ministry is not lagging behind its Azerbaijani counterparts. On the evening of September 29 , it claimed that since the morning of September 27, about 790 Azerbaijani servicemen had been killed and 1,900 people injured in the conflict, which had erupted in the Nagorno-Karabakh region. The Armenian military also claimed that its forces had destroyed 137 units of military equipment, including battle tanks, 72 drones, 7 helicopters and a military plane.
The Armenian side, including top officials of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic and Armenia itself, insist that Turkey has been directly supporting Azerbaijan in this war. This support allegedly includes not only diplomatic support, but also military planning, intelligence assistance, the deployment of military advisers and special forces, weapon supplies and even direct participation of various Turkish units in the clashes. On September 29, they even reported that a Turkish F-16 fighter jet deployed in Azerbaiijan shot down an Armenian Su-25 warplane in order to provide air cover to combat drones, which were striking targets inside Armenia. Both Turkey and Azerbaijan denied this. As of now, the mysterious F-16 looks every bit as perplexing as the ghost S-300 system somehow found by Azerbaijan near the contact line in Karabakh.
At the same time, neither side seems to be interested in a resumption of the ceasefire. Instead, both Armenia and Azerbaijan declare their goal to be delivering a military defeat to their opponent. Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said that there are no prospects for peace with Armenia as their position is unacceptable. “The Armenian Prime Minister publicly declares that Karabakh is Armenia, period. In this case, we cannot talk about any kind of negotiation process,” Aliyev said. Earlier he vowed to settle the Karabakh question by returning control over the contested region to Azerbaijan. In their own turn, the President of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, thus speaking for Armenia, declared that the Armenians are not interested in requesting a ceasefire. Instead, he said, they will force the enemy to ask for it.
