New press reports revealed on Monday, that more than 1000 militants were sent from Syria to the Nagorno Karabakh region during the past week.
sources said: “Last Friday, more than a thousand militants were sent to fight from Syria to the Nagorno Karabakh region to fight alongside the Azerbaijani army against Armenia”.
The source indicated that there are other batches of militants who are preparing to move to Nagorno Karabakh from Syria.
The American Wall Street Journal stated in its report that “hundreds of Syrian fighters linked to Turkey were deployed in the conflict zone in Karabakh,” explaining that “hundreds of members of the Syrian armed groups allied with Turkey participated in the battles, between Azerbaijan and Armenia”.
The newspaper pointed out, according to its sources, that “hundreds of others are preparing to travel there,” noting that “news began to spread among the ranks of the Syrian rebel groups since July, stating that Turkey is recruiting fighters to participate in hostilities”.
The Wall Street Journal explained that “the dispatch of militants from Syria to the conflict zone took place in mid-September, in groups of up to 100 people at one time”.
It is noteworthy that the military clashes between Armenia and Azerbaijan were renewed, on 27 September, in the most violent round of the conflict that has continued for nearly three decades, amid mutual accusations of starting the fighting and of polarizing militants.
