BAKU, Azerbaijan, March 30. Almost the entire territory of Azerbaijan’s Karabakh is covered with blood of both civilians and soldiers, Azerbaijani military expert Adalat Verdiyev told Trend.
According to Verdiyev, during engineering and construction work on the Azerbaijani lands liberated from Armenian occupation [in the 2020 second Karabakh war], human remains were found many times.
He said that along with Farrukh village, Khojaly district, a mass grave was also found in Khojavand district’s Edilli village.
"As the construction work in our liberated territories continues, such mass graves will be revealed. Despite the fact that 30 years have passed, thousands of our citizens will be able to learn about the fate of their relatives who went missing," Verdiyev said.
“The remains found in Farrukh village may belong to our citizens who died during the genocide committed by Armenian armed forces in Khojaly [city], or in the battles for the village. We’ll know about this for sure only after the DNA examination,” Verdiyev further said.
“One of the reasons why Armenians stubbornly refuse to leave the lands of Karabakh is the likelihood of finding the remains of most of the 4,000 Azerbaijanis who died during the first Karabakh war,” he added.
