Armenian forces captured terrorist from Syria fighting for Azerbaijan
The defense army of the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic captured a terrorist from the Syrian city of Hama fighting as a mercenary for Azerbaijan in Karabakh, Armenian Defense Ministry Press Secretary Shushan Stepanyan wrote on Facebook on Friday.
The Armenian Defense Ministry press secretary also uploaded a video of the captured mercenary’s interrogation.
“The defense army units have captured a terrorist and his first interrogation leaves no doubts that mercenary terrorists are present on the frontline of the Azerbaijani army. The captured Islamist’s name is Mehred Muhammad Alshkher. He comes from the Syrian city of Hama,” she said.
The captive admitted during interrogation he had come to the engagement line in Karabakh on October 19 together with 250 other terrorists who had been sent to the area by Turkey, Stepanyan said.
“They were promised $2,000 but were not paid. After he was wounded, his fellow fighters left him on the battlefield. He says they are the first to fight on the frontline while the Azerbaijani forces come in the second and third echelons,” the Armenian Defense Ministry spokeswoman said.
The captive said that “before going to the frontline, they were gathered in a camp where Turkish military instructors worked with them,” Stepanyan said.
