Azerbaijan’s defence ministry has said that at least 2,300 Armenian soldiers have been killed or wounded by Azerbaijani troops since the conflict between the two countries began on Sunday.
According to Anadulo news agency the ministry statement added that 130 tanks and armoured vehicles, more than 200 artillery and missile systems, approximately 25 air defence systems, six command and observation zones, five ammunition depots, 50 anti-tank guns and 55 cars were also destroyed.
Meanwhile, Turkey has said that it will “do what is necessary” if Azerbaijan requests support from Ankara, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Wednesday after being asked in an interview whether Turkey would provide military support.
Fighting between Azerbaijan and ethnic Armenian forces entered a fourth day on Wednesday in the biggest eruption of their decades-old conflict since a 1994 ceasefire. Cavusoglu was speaking in an interview with state-run Anadolu news agency.
