Azerbaijan and Israel: side by side against Iran


19 September 2021, 12:17 - NovostiNK
At the geopolitical level, the most important factor uniting Azerbaijan with Israel is the fact that Azerbaijan has a common border with Iran.

Azerbaijan is a neighbor of Iran, but the relations between the two countries are not the most favorable. While Azerbaijan accuses Iran of persecuting the Azerbaijani population of Iran, whose number is about 20 million, Tehran accuses Baku of using this population to interfere in its internal politics. The relations between Israel and Iran since the Islamic Revolution of 1979 are not just dysfunctional, but openly hostile.

Based on the above, Azerbaijan and Israel are developing common strategies against the Islamic Republic of Iran. Taking into account the cooperation of the two states in the intelligence sphere, Israeli defense companies provide Azerbaijan with technical equipment for tracking Iran, and the received intelligence is being transmitted to Israel.

Azerbaijani “black gold” also plays an important role in Azerbaijan-Israel relations, which makes it possible to purchase military equipment in exchange for oil.

It is noteworthy that sometimes the purchased funds most resemble not army purchases, but purchases for terrorist activities. And then, everything moves according to the old plan. The purchased weapons on the planes of the Azerbaijani national airline Silk Way Airlines are delivered to terrorists on diplomatic flights in a variety of directions. Recall that Silk Way Airlines belongs to the Aliyev family.

Against the background of the current geopolitical developments and tensions in Iranian-Israeli relations (in fact, the ongoing war against Iran), Israel needs military bases in Azerbaijan and every possible binding of the Azerbaijani authorities to Israeli military plans.

Based on the fact, that Iran and Israel are at a distance of 2000 km from each other, and Israel has almost no refueling planes, in the event of a war, it will need a ˝place darme˝ to use the most powerful Israeli military component-strike aircraft. In this situation, the territory of Azerbaijan is an excellent solution, and Azerbaijan is very happy to provide it to Israel.

The joint anti-Iranian steps of Tel Aviv and Baku are not limited to the military sphere. Since September 12 of this year, Azerbaijani policemen have installed an illegal checkpoint on the Goris-Kapan road in the Syunik region of Armenia and are stopping Iranian trucks to check documents and cargo, extorting money for crossing. According to unofficial data, all this happened on the initiative of Israel and Turkey and is aimed to harm the Iranian economy. The Iranian Ambassador to Azerbaijan and the assistant to the President of Azerbaijan met on this issue on September 14 this year. Official Baku accuses Tehran of carrying out illegal transportation through the territory of Armenia to Nagorno-Karabakh.

It is important to note that the developing relations between Israel and Azerbaijan not only increase the tension between Tehran and Tel Aviv, but also increase the probability of a new war in the Caucasus.
