The British newspaper “The Independent” reported that Turkey and Azerbaijan’s denial of the presence of Syrian mercenaries in the Karabakh battles contradicts the documents and confessions of the mercenaries, as it published testimonies and statements confirming Turkey’s sending of mercenaries.
And the newspaper said, that it had obtained certificates, documents and statements stating that Turkey sent Syrian mercenaries to the battlefront in the disputed Karabakh region between Armenia and Azerbaijan.
The report pointed out that “hundreds of Syrian mercenaries are participating alongside the Azeri forces in the raging fighting in Karabakh against the Armenian forces,” in exchange for money, “even if it was at the expense of their lives in a battle far from their homeland.”
The newspaper added that the mercenaries were recruited by a private Turkish security company, confirming that they had received voice messages through the “WhatsApp” application for Syrians in Azerbaijan visiting one of their comrades injured in the fighting, and had contacts with members of his family.
And the newspaper pointed out that the Turkish and Azerbaijani governments’ denial of the presence of Syrian mercenaries in the Karabakh battles contradicts the documents and confessions they obtained with audio and video.
