*Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said in an interview with RIA Novosti that Turkey uses similar methods of using militants under its control in Nagorno-Karabakh, as it does in Libya and the SAR.
According to the Syrian leader, it is Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan who is the main initiator of a new round of escalation of the conflict in the region.
Note that earlier in social media there was an opinion that Turkey can use militants on the principle of the Syrian Afrin, when the army, with the support of mercenaries, captures the region of interest, and militants are appointed as “governors”.
In this case, Karabakh was to become the new Afrin.

Azerbaijan’s State Security Service publishes a radio interception, as a result of which information was allegedly obtained about the participation of mercenaries from Syria and Iraq, including the forces of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, in the battles in Karabakh on the side of Armenia / NKR.
Earlier, similar statements were made in Yerevan in relation to Azerbaijan itself.
*Militants of one groups in the Syrian province of Idlib speak negatively about their comrades-in-arms, who left for “work” in Azerbaijan, citing a difficult financial situation.
*Both in Baku and in Yerevan, footage of the destruction of enemy military equipment is now being broadcast on street billboards.
*Iran, previously announced its readiness to give a tough response in the event of an “arrival” of shells on its territory, is pulling additional military units to the border with the belligerent region.
*On social media appeared footage, presumably, of the use of the Tochka-U OTRK of the Armenian Armed Forces on objects in the territory of Azerbaijan.
At the moment, both sides of the conflict have denied the use of operational-tactical missiles.
Baku declares at least 10 launches from the territory of Armenia, while Yerevan claims that the recent strike on the bridge across the Akari River was inflicted by a LORA missile.
Let’s sum up the traditional results of the day of hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh.
There was practically no news from the front line either, with the exception of Nikol Pashinyan’s visit to Nagorno-Karabakh, where he personally got acquainted with the situation.
After heavy fighting on Sunday and Monday, the sides took a break, put themselves in order, concentrated and delivered ammunition. The weather also influenced the decrease in activity, as today it was rainy and foggy in some places.
Nevertheless, both sides continued to fire at each other using long-range systems in the form of OTR and MLRS.
It seems that today’s pause is nothing more than a calm before the storm, and fighting on a large scale should resume in the coming days.
At the same time, international activity was growing as a result of yesterday’s statement by the participants in the Minsk agreements, as well as the visit of a Russian delegation to Yerevan. True, it was not possible to come to any specific steps on Tuesday.
