SOHR Reports at Least 107 Jihadist Mercenaries Killed in Nagorno-Karabakh Battles

SOHR Reports at Least 107 Jihadist Mercenaries Killed in Nagorno-Karabakh Battles

https://massispost.com/2020/10/sohr-...abakh-battles/

"Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reports that the death toll of the Turkish-backed Syrian Jihadist mercenaries fighting in Azerbaijan is rising, SOHR activists have documented the death of 26 Syrian fighters who were killed in the past 48 hours in raging battles in the Nagorno-Karabakh on the side of Azerbaijan against Armenia. Accordingly, the total number of fatalities among the Turkish-backed Syrian mercenaries since Turkey threw them into the conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia has reached 107....."

Worth noting these are Syrian Jihadists backed by Turkey.

Turkey, our NATO Ally, sure does like to keep stuff stirred up in the area.

Vladimir Putin and his Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov are unlikely to be happy at this. Must be one of those old-time Polaroid™ cease fires; coat it across the surface with the lacquer or else it fades.

Allegiances in the region are multi-layered with the arms for all parties coming from the Russians. The Christian versus Muslim alliances are aligned more traditionally along Ottoman - Russian lines.. History continues to rhyme.
