Syrian Observatory activists followed the arrival of the bodies of 25 Syrian mercenaries supported by Turkey, who died in fierce fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh, Syriahr reports.
Over the past few hours, activists from the Syrian Observatory have documented the deaths of 29 Syrian militants in the fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh, almost 15 of whom arrived in Syria. Accordingly, the total death toll among Turkish-backed groups since the Turkish government sent them to the front lines at the end of September has risen to at least 217, including 163 fighters whose bodies were brought to Syria and the rest remained in Azerbaijan.
SOHR sources reported this morning the arrival of 300 militants in Azerbaijan over the past few hours and days.
It is worth noting that some of the militants sent to Azerbaijan did not even know that the Azerbaijani forces belonged to the Shiite community, and returned to Syria immediately after they found out, not to mention the harsh conditions the militants were in.
When a new batch of fighters arrived in Azerbaijan, the total number of Syrian fighters involved in the fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh rose to at least 2,350, of which 320 fighters returned to Syria after surrendering and refusing to be paid.
