Hikmat Hajiyev, foreign policy advisor to Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, denied reports that Ankara was sending forces to support Baku.

Armenia ordered 4 Iskander complexes and at least 25 shells with a range of 280 km from Russia, becoming the first country outside of Russia to own this tactical ballistic missile model.

The armies of Armenia and Azerbaijan suddenly clashed violently on September 27, when the two sides accused each other of attacking targets in the Nagorno-Karabakh region first.

Azerbaijan’s Ministry of Defense announced that it had destroyed 550 soldiers, 22 armored vehicles, 15 9K33 Osa air defense complexes, 18 UAVs, 8 artillery positions and three ammunition depots of Armenia.

Experts say that the clash between Azerbaijan and Armenia last week was more fierce than in July because both countries sent many heavy weapons to the fighting area.

The clash caused Russian President Vladimir Putin to express `deep concern` yesterday, asking Armenia and Azerbaijan to `do everything possible to prevent the conflict from continuing to escalate and end hostility.`
