PKK terrorists are fighting side by side with the Armenian army to defend their illegal occupation of Upper Karabakh, also known as Nagorno-Karabakh, a captured Armenian soldier confessed on Friday, according to Azerbaijani security sources.
Albert Mikaelyan, captured by the Azerbaijani army during operations to liberate its occupied territories, said he is originally from northwestern Armenia’s Sirak province but was deployed to Upper Karabakh for his mandatory military service, according to the Azerbaijani sources, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.
While serving in an anti-tank team, Mikaelyan noticed the presence of Kurdish-speaking mercenaries in the barracks, up to 1500 of them.
"They get paid $600. They are divided into teams of 10-15. They have been learning local conditions and preparing for deployment to the battlefield," Mikaelyan noted.
On Wednesday, Hikmet Hajiyev, assistant to the Azerbaijani president, said Armenia is using PKK terrorists on the front lines in Upper Karabakh.
“We also have concerns about the PKK terrorist organization's involvement in the war,” said Hajiyev.
“They are also in the ranks of the Armenian armed forces. Essentially, they are deployed on the front line of the defense of the Armenian armed forces.”
In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US and the EU – has been responsible for the deaths of some 40,000 people, including women, children and infants.
