Turkish Troops to March in Azerbaijan’s Parade Celebrating Victory Over Armenia
If Turks did not fight in the war why are they marching?
Editor’s note: Turkey paid and transported ex-rebel Syrian mercenaries, stationed F-16 in Azerbaijan during the war as deterrence, very likely surveilled the air space over Armenia for Azerbaijan with its AWACS, and quite possibly operated the Bayraktar attack drones for Azerbaijan seeing they were only ordered in late June which would have left precious little time for the training of Azeri operators before the launch of the offensive in late September.
Turkish Soldiers will take part in the large-scale military parade celebrating Azerbaijan’s victory in the Nagorno-Karabakh war victory in the Azerbaijani capital Baku on Thursday.
According to a spokesman for the Azerbaijan Defense Ministry, at the invitation of President Heydar Aliyev, the Turkish Soldiers arrived in Baku to take part in a military parade to celebrate its victory in Nagorno-Karabakh.

Over 3,000 soldiers will participate in the parade in the capital Baku on Dec. 10, the ministry said in a statement.
“Up to 150 military vehicles, including new military equipment, missile and artillery pieces, air defense systems recently adopted into the armament, as well as military ships and boats will be demonstrated at the parade,” the ministry said.
Some war trophies seized from the Armenian army will also be displayed at the event, it added.
Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is also expected to attend the ceremony.
