Nagorno-Karabakh battles | 72 Syrian mercenaries killed since Turkey threw them into raging conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia

Death toll of the Turkish-backed Syrian mercenaries IS rising, as they have been thrown into the raging battles in Nagorno-Karabakh, on the side of Azerbaijan against Armenia.


The number of the Turkish-backed mercenaries who were killed on the frontlines in Nagorno-Karabakh has risen to 72. On the other hand, the Turkish government is preparing a new batch of Syrian fighters to be sent to Azerbaijan in the next few days.


Yesterday, SOHR sources said that Turkish security companies and Turkish intelligence continues to transfer and train large numbers of fighters of Turkish-backed factions to join the fighting in Azerbaijan. It is worth noting that the number of fighters arrived in Azerbaijan rose to nearly 1,200, mostly of Turkmen descent.


Reliable sources informed SOHR that the Turkish government had thrown Syrian mercenaries into the ongoing battles in the contested Nagorno-Karabakh between Azerbaijan and Armenia, after informing the mercenaries that their task was confined to the “guarding of oil fields and borders” in Azerbaijan.
