Iran Threatens Azerbaijan
The president of Azerbaijan, Ilham Aliyev, has called out Iran for it’s sudden and surprising military drills on their shared border. Although Iran claims it’s a matter of “sovereignty,” we all know Iran is a hostile regime that wants to destroy Israel and anyone who associates with Israel.
Israel and Azerbaijan have good relations. The two countries have had arms and oil deals. The question is why Iran is carrying out these drills now when Israel and Azerbaijan have had relations for years.
