The main reason for the tension between Azerbaijan and Armenia is Nagorno-Karabakh… with the collapse of the Soviet Union, Karabakh became a region of tension between Armenia and Azerbaijan. Tensions have been escalating for more than 20 years, with the Armenians of Karabakh demanding that Karabakh be transferred from Soviet Azerbaijan to Soviet Armenia.
Despite the ceasefire between the sides, frequent clashes continue on the border between Azerbaijan and Armenia, which occupies the region. Tensions in the region are also being closely watched by the international public because of the gas and oil pipeline corridor in the region.
Khojaly Massacre was an incident of mass murder of Azerbaijani civilians by Armenian forces in Khojaly town in Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan on February 26, 1992 during the Karabakh War.
Armenian forces joined the 366th division in the region from 25 February to 26 February 1992. With the support of the input and output to close the first regiment the town of Khojaly in Azerbaijan according to official sources, 83 children, 106 women and more than 70 elderly people, including calm 613 killed, 487 persons were wounded. 1275 people were taken hostage and 150 people disappeared. Examination of the bodies showed that many of the bodies were burned, their eyes were gouged out, and their heads were cut off. Pregnant women and children have also been found to be exposed.
Armenia’s attack on civilians and the Khojaly massacre froze the blood of the international community.
The town of Khojaly, one of the most important hills of the Nagorno-Karabakh region, was an important military target for the Armenian forces. The town was located on the road connecting Khankendi and Aghdam and was the base for the region’s only airport. According to a report by Human Rights Watch, the town of Khojaly was being held by Armenian forces because it was used as a base by the Azerbaijani Armed Forces, who were holding Khankendi to artillery fire.
After the capture of the town of Kerkicahan, which settled around Khankendi and was inhabited by Azerbaijanis in December 1991, the town of Khojaly remained completely under the Armenian blockade. As of October 30, transport by road was closed and the helicopter remained the only means of transport.
After the shooting down of a Mi-8 helicopter by Armenian forces in the skies of Khojavend on 20 November 1991, and the resulting death of 20 people, including several Azerbaijani state officials, Russian and Kazakh observers, air transport was also cut off. Before the occupation, Khojaly was constantly bombed during the winter months of 1991-1992. Refugees from Khojaly told Human Rights Watch that in some cases the bombardments were clearly directed against civilian targets. Before the attack, the town had been without electricity and gas for several months.
