Syunik’s Shrinking Borders: Nerkin Khndzoresk

n Armenia’s southernmost Syunik Province, the residents of Nerkin Khndzoresk village have found themselves just a few kilometers away from Azerbaijani military positions. After the 44-day war, Armenia handed over multiple regions to Azerbaijan. Sections of communities in Syunik were also handed over. Now, those living in the bordering areas are under the constant gaze of the opponent’s military. 

But despite the loss of pastures and the security threats, the villagers tell CIVILNET that they are going to stay and they are not afraid. “It’s not like Azerbaijanis are not afraid. They are not the ones who defeated us. It’s Turkey that won the war,” they say.
