Armenia uses Tochka-U tactical missiles against Azerbaijan’s troops

A video that recently appeared on social media purportedly shows an Armenia has employed one of its Tochka-U tactical missile systems against Azerbaijan’s troops.

Videos and pictures on social media from the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh show an Armenia has employed Tochka-U missile systems against Azerbaijan.

In a statement presented by the Ministry Of Defence Of Azerbaijan, said that Armenia shells Azerbaijani settlements with Smerch multiple launch rocket systems and Tochka-U tactical missiles.


“Due to the unsuitability and poor quality of the enemy’s military equipment, three of the missiles fired did not explode,” said in a statement.

In turn, the Ministry of Defense of Armenia debunked the Azerbaijani statement claiming that Yerevan uses Tochka-U tactical missile to target Azerbaijan.

“The claims of Azerbaijani officials, alleging that Armenia fires Tochka-U systems at Azerbaijani territory, are lies and are false. Despite the fact that Azerbaijan has been attacking settlements near Vardenis with drones and artillery for several days already, not a single missile has been fired from Armenia at Azerbaijan yet,” the Armenian Ministry said.
