The person responsible for the terrorist activities of Armenia in Nagorno-Karabakh announced that Azerbaijan carried out an attack with KARGU loitering munition against the so-called Nagorno-Karabakh Defence Army troops. It was claimed that there were no casualties in the statement.
In the statement made by the Armenians, it was claimed that Azerbaijan attacked the Armenian locations. However, photos and information to come from the region show that this is not true. Although a ceasefire has been reached in the region, Armenia is carrying out numerous activities that would break the agreement. Armenians are trying to enter the territories belonging to Azerbaijan. For this reason, the possibility of KARGU loitering munitions being used against Armenian troops who violate the border or attempt to infiltrate is outweighed.
A Shared image by Armenians shows the KARGU kamikaze loitering munition produced by STM.

In this war, Azerbaijan used Bayraktar TB2 UCAVs, Israeli-made Heron and Hermes type UAVs and various Israeli-made KARGU loitering munitions. Concurrently an image of a large number of KARGU from Azerbaijan was shared as the battle continued.
