BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 P.M.) – The Armenian Ministry of Defense reported on Friday that several Syrian mercenaries are still present in the Karabakh region, despite the November 9th Moscow agreement.

“Terrorist mercenaries from #Syria transferred to #Artsakh during the war still remain in the conflict zone as mentioned in the statement of the General Prosecutor’s Office of #Armenia,” the Spokeswoman for the Armenian Ministry of Defense, Shushan Stepanyan, tweeted on Friday.

Azerbaijan has yet to respond to the Armenian Ministry of Defense’s accusations.

Armenia has previously accused Turkey of transporting mercenaries from Syria and Libya to Karabakh in order to assist the Azerbaijani Armed Forces in the conflict zone of this disputed region.

Azerbaijan and Turkey have denied these claims and countered this claim by accusing Yerevan of using fighters from Lebanon and Syria.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
