During the ongoing joint military exercises called “Mustafa Kemal Ataturk-2023,” Turkish and Azerbaijani forces engaged in the destruction of simulated adversary targets. These exercises commenced on Monday.
The second day of the three-day tactical drills, which is also marked as a “Distinguished Observer Day,” continued with the participation of Turkish and Azerbaijani commando units, as well as Turkish F-16s and Bayraktar TB2 drones, which conducted various maneuvers against imaginary enemies.
The Distinguished Observer Day of the military exercises was attended by Turkish Defense Minister Yasar Guler and his Azerbaijani counterpart Zakir Hasanov, as well as Tajik Defense Minister Sherali Mirzo.
The drills, with the participation of 3,000 military personnel from both countries, are being conducted in various parts of Azerbaijan, including the capital Baku, the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic, and in the territories liberated after a 44-day war with Armenia in the fall of 2020.
