I picked up reference to this on FoxNews this morning morning and was inspired to look further:
Israel Buys Air Field on Iranian Border
Foreign Policy magazine reported in an exclusive piece this week that Israel has purchased an Azeri airfield on Irans northern border, prompting the United States to watch very closely. Journalist Mark Perry wrote the Obama administration is monitoring Israels relations with Azerbaijan, particularly its military ties.
But Azerbaijan denies any possibility of potential air strikes from from its territory.
Baku: No Strike on Iran From Azeri Soil
Azeri president Ilham Aliyev dismissed speculation on Thursday that Israel would use four abandoned bases in his country to launch strikes on Iran’s nuclear program.
“Azerbaijan’s territory will never be used to launch an attack against its neighbor, Iran,” Aliyev’s office said in a statement.
