False information disseminated by Armenia about its army during the second Karabakh war has been exposed once again, Azerbaijani military expert Colonel Shair Ramaldanov said on Saturday, according to Trend News Agency.
During a Youtube broadcast, Armenian military expert Van Hambardzumyan confirmed Yerevan’s use of the Iskander tactical ballistic missile launcher during the war and stated that the information regarding downed Azerbaijani drones is false.
“Armenia had indeed used the Iskander missile launcher during the war, although it has not yet admitted it officially. The Armenian side spread false information before, during, and after the war,” Ramaldanov stressed.
“We also have enough facts that the Armenian state had provided false information to its internal audience. The Armenian military-political leadership took these steps, first of all, for self-defense. After all, if the Armenian people knew the truth, the position of the military-political leadership would be deplorable,” the colonel said.
“As for the use of Iskander missile, we found pieces of these missiles in Shusha. There is also information that both Iskander and other missiles were launched at Baku. However, Azerbaijan's air defense units successfully prevented these attacks and defended our airspace,” the Azerbaijani military said.
“During the war, the Armenian army used all the weapons in its arsenal. But the biggest lie in Armenia is related to information about losses incurred. They later admitted that their losses were double than what they actually declared. The remains of the Armenian servicemen are still being found,” Ramaldanov said.
On Nov. 10, 2020, following a 44-day conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan in Upper Karabakh, also known as Nagorno-Karabakh, and surrounding regions, the two countries signed a Russia-brokered cease-fire to end the fighting and work toward a comprehensive resolution.
During the six weeks of fighting, Azerbaijan liberated several cities and some 300 settlements and villages after a nearly three-decade occupation.
