ArmInfo.As a result of the 44-day war, it must be stated that Israel has become one of the interested centers of power in "inviting" Turkey to the South Caucasus, and more precisely to Azerbaijan. An independent analyst Saro Saroyan expressed this opinion to ArmInfo.
"The invitation was conditioned by Tel Aviv's desire to distract Turkey from the Eastern Mediterranean. It is no secret that Erdogan has been pursuing a very aggressive policy in this region recently. Meanwhile, Israel considers the Eastern Mediterranean to be a zone of its own strategic interests. And strives for monopoly influence in this zone. ", - he thinks.
That is why Israel, according to the analyst, has made considerable efforts to promote the Azerbaijani- Turkish victory in the war against Armenia. Moreover, by no means only the supply of arms to Azerbaijan. The intelligence and political assistance provided were essential. All of this was aimed at giving Turkey additional confidence in the process of countering Russian influence in the South Caucasus.
According to the analyst, in order for Turkey to appear in the zone of Russian influence, guarantees of certain military-political actors in their assistance to its daring initiatives were naturally necessary. From this point of view, Israel had an enormous contribution to the outbreak of the 44-day war. As a result, enormous efforts were required from the Kremlin to prevent direct involvement of Russia in hostilities, since there they realized the disastrous consequences of such a scenario, both for themselves and for Turkey. Thus, it seems that a major regional war was avoided. In reality, Erdogan managed to win this battle on the path of building a neo-Ottoman sultanate.
"And we should not expect that he will be satisfied with this. Especially considering that Israel's assistance in penetrating into the zone of Russian influence allows Ankara to consider its rear protected and initiate a breakthrough to new positions in the Black Sea region. The Kremlin has already demonstrated toothlessness, and Israel is interested Accordingly, the answer to the question of why Erdogan should stop in such a situation does not contain any reasons for a logically justified refutation, "the analyst concluded.
