Armenian general suggests delivering a series of preventive surgical strikes at Azeri army's combat positions

The Armenian army can and should deliver a series of preventive surgical strikes at the Azeri army's positions, Major-General Arkady Ter- Tadevosyan (Kommandos), an Artsakh war hero, said at today's press conference in Yerevan.      

He said that over the past 20 years Azerbaijan has regularly threatened to unleash war, made sabotage attacks and kept Armenia blocked, but in fact, Azerbaijan has no combat effective army. "We should not sit on our hands and let the enemy get on our nerves all the time.  Unfortunately, today it is Azerbaijan that gives tone to the talks, blackmailing and threatening to launch military actions. Armenia should be the first to strike", he said. He added that after receiving the necessary effect of these strikes, Armenia may even break the blockade and get an access to Russia's borders at the expense of northern territories of Azerbaijan. 

In the meantime, Ter-Tadevosyan stressed the need to coordinate the issue of the strikes with the Armenian public. "Azerbaijan must see that Armenia and its citizens are ready to take extreme measures to ensure long-lasting security and stability of their border", he said. 

As regards the possible response of the international community, Ter-Tadevosyan thinks that the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs are also responsible for the current deadlock situation by shutting their eyes to Baku's permanent attempts to destabilize the situation. He is not afraid of large- scale military actions as a result of the strikes. "The western countries are afraid for their oil and gas pipes and will not allow Azerbaijan to unleash war", he said.
