The current conflict in Artsakh has affected civilian areas, rendering them uninhabitable, wreaking havoc on the region’s housing, infrastructure and agricultural lands. This has directly contributed to the displacement of over 100,000 Artsakh refugees, now living in temporary shelters in Armenia with limited access to basic essentials. With the November 10 ceasefire agreement resulting in further loss of territorial lands, it is expected that the number of refugees displaced from these areas will increase.
Civilians in Artsakh faced 44 days of indiscriminate missile and drone strikes by Azerbaijani forces, hitting hospitals, schools, homes and Churches and displacing tens of thousands of families. Some of these people have lost husbands, fathers, sons and other loved ones and now face the harsh reality of having to rebuild their lives.
