Preventive measures: Armenia responds to Azerbaijan=?UTF-8?B?4oCZ?=s military rhetoric by showing airstrike capability

October 22, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Last week Armenia marked the Day of Armenian Missile and Artillery Troops. But that wasn’t the main factor that generated interest in the missile forces. The main interest was fueled by the unprecedented statement made by Armenia’s deputy defense minister about Armenia’s being ready to carry out strike against the oil and gas infrastructure of the “conventional enemy” in the event of the latter’s aggression.

Major-General Artak Davtyan, commenting on the recent exercises of the armed forces of Armenia and Karabakh during which launches of missiles with a range of 300 km were simulated, stated that the missiles are aimed specifically to target [Azerbaijan’s] industrial infrastructure. He noted that the missile strikes would be of preventive nature and would be directed against specific sites: the oil, gas and energy infrastructure that supports the [Azerbaijani] economy.
