    Mr. Haroian is correct! Eyes wide OPEN, don’t relax or rejoice for now as there will be more attacks coming. I guarantee that Turkish commandos will help the Azeris with another infiltration attempt. I am confident they are already covertly helping. Nobody will help Armenians except our own kind NEVER FORGET this. We must take care of our own, the USA, Russia and EU are only out for their own strategic benefit not ours.
