JNS.org – An alleged Israeli-made “suicide drone” was reportedly deployed to the renewed Azerbaijan-Armenia battleground in the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh area.

A YouTube video has surfaced showing the drone, which “based on its distinct wing shape and nose, looks like an Israeli Aerospace Industries Harop loitering munition,” the Washington Post reported.

Nagorno-Karabakh is an ethnic Armenian region located inside Azerbaijan. The two nations have been feuding over the area for several decades, with the most recent armed conflict erupting last weekend.

Various foreign media have reported in the past that the Harop system has been sold to nations such as India.

    Thanks Israel for a drone which targeted military bus by killing 6 soldiers/volunteers. Its not the question why Israel has sold this drone to Azerbaijan, the question is what the hell armenian troops are doing in Azerbaijan’s land? The more you stay – more dead armenian young soldiers will be killed, even your best friend Putin will not help this time.

    Yes, Israel has given Armenia the record for “Having Shot Down the most Israeli made or Licensed Drones” to date. So let me see, guns don’t kill people, only people do. Israeli Harop drones didn’t destroy a bus killing all passengers, only Azerbaijan did. Taking this to its limit, “Oh, I was just following orders”. Perhaps “Befehl ist Befehl” is more to the point.

    The mood in Armenia regarding Israeli-made arms killing Armenians in Nagorno-Karabakh is very dour. Ya, we are only what remains of a small country still recovering from genocide.

    Why would the Israelis waste a good drone in Nagorno-Karabakh when the two combatants are doing such a good job killing each other?

      Good question for the Israeli Foreign Ministry!
