Terror-Express: Are militants from Libya transferred to Azerbaijan to fight Armenians?
The Boeing 737, owned by Libya, made a flight from Mitiga airport near Tripoli to Baku, Azerbaijan, on the night of September 30 where it arrived at 01:17 local time. The flight was operated by Burag Air.

There is no permanent air connection between Baku and Tripoli. The flight information was published on Flightradar24 website. At the same time, Burag Air has previously been accused in the Libyan media of transporting Syrian fighters through Turkey to Libya, where they were to fight on the side of the government. Mitiga Airport also serves as a prison controlled by the Salafi group RADA.
It is likely that now, some of these fighters have been transferred to Azerbaijan on an emergency flight. Earlier in an interview with Al-Arabiya, Khaled Mahjoub from the opposing Libyan National Army (LNA) fighting the GNA, spoke out about the transfer of pro-Turkish mercenaries from Libya to Azerbaijan.
Another version might be the transfer of some Turkish military equipment from Libya to the war zone in South Caucasus.
On September 27, Azerbaijan and Armenia resumed fighting for the territories of Nagorno-Karabakh. Turkey has said it would support the Azerbaijani side. Armenian authorities accuse Ankara of supplying weapons and fighters from Syria to Azerbaijan. Also, according to the Armenian Defense Ministry, it was the Turkish Air Force that shot down an Armenian Su-25 plane in the conflict zone the day before. Turkey and Azerbaijan refuted these allegations.
Information about Syrian fighters’ transfer to Azerbaijan has been actively circulating in international media in recent days.
Two Islamists from Syria confirmed in an interview with Reuters that the militants had been sent to Azerbaijan. On September 27, the first confirmation of the presence of Syrian militants in Azerbaijan was noted. A video began to spread on Turkish and Azerbaijani social networks in which pickup trucks with Syrian mercenaries were driving along the streets of the city.
The analyst and former spokesman for the International Coalition for Operation Inherent Resolve, Mzahem Alsaloum, said that “about ten days ago, the first Syrian SNA fighters landed in Azerbaijan to take part in planned offensive operations”.
Syrian researcher Hussein Akoush also reported that his acquaintance, the militant Muhammad Shaalan was recently killed in Azerbaijan.
