Video from security cameras shows that Azerbaijan appears to use LORA ballistic missiles to destroy a bridge connecting Armenia with the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone.

This video has not been verified for authenticity, although military experts believe that the exploded shell may have been fired from the Long Range Artillery System (LORA) in the Azerbaijani army.

If this information is confirmed, this could be the LORA missile’s first combat engagement in the world, and is also an escalation of tension in the armed conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh when both sides began using missiles.

Each LORA shell has a maximum range of 400 km, equipped with an inertial navigation system, satellite positioning and optical probe, allowing it to hit the target with an error within a radius of 10 m.

Azerbaijan ordered and received delivery of at least 50 LORA shells in the period 2017-2018. They are placed in storage tanks and launchers, capable of changing combat status in a short time.

In addition to the ability to attack key targets such as bridges and roads, LORA also provides the ability to blockade the narrow transportation network in the Nagorno-Karabakh region, limiting Amernia’s ability to reinforce and ensure logistics.

`Deploying ballistic missiles will significantly escalate the conflict. Azerbaijan once accused Armenia of using Tochka-U, but Yerevan denied the accusations and warned Baku not to use ballistic missiles. The Armenian army may

Nagorno-Karabakh is a province of Azerbaijan, but the majority of the local population are Armenians, who are a minority and always seek to secede from Azerbaijan to merge with Armenia.

The dispute over control of the Nagorno-Karabakh region broke out into a six-year war between Azerbaijan and Armenia from February 1988 to May 1994.

Fighting between Armenian and Azerbaijani forces broke out in Nagorno-Karabakh on September 27.

The Armenian Foreign Ministry yesterday expressed its readiness to cooperate with the mediation team of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) to find a solution to end the conflict in the Nagorno-Karabakh region, but emphasized
