Turkish TV mentions "6,000 Azeri troops" killed in 2nd Karabakh war

The Turkish state-run TV channel TRT has reported that Turkey has sent presents to the children of the Azerbaijani soldiers who died in the Second Karabakh War in 2020. According to the reportage, "the families of 6,000 Azerbaijani servicemen who died in the 44-day war will receive gifts."

The Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan announced earlier, however, that 2900 servicemen died from the Azerbaijani side during the last war in Karabakh.

After a while the text attached to the video was edited and the phrase "as well as the children of the wounded" was added to it, although a screenshot of the original post exists too.
