    Thanks BBC for unbiased news.
    It would be nice to hear something about more than 1 milion displaced Azerbaijanis People. Todays live there only 150000 Armenian, but 30 Years Ago there were more than 1 Milion Azerbaidjani People, but almost had no gun und no Army. Children killed by Armenia – Khojaly genocide. Since then, 1 million Azerbaidjani people have become refugees, more than 1 Milion displaced by Armenia. I hope this People will come back to their Homes.

    Karabakh – Azerbaijan🇦🇿❤

    Karabakh is one of the ancient historical regions of Azerbaijan. The name Karabakh is a combination of the words “gara” (black, big) and “bagh” (garden, land). The word “Karabakh” as a name given by Azerbaijani people to their land first appeared in primary sources of the 7th century. 
    In dealing with the subject of Karabakh, the first question to be answered is: where is this place and which areas of Azerbaijan does it cover?  The answer to this question is especially relevant today for any understanding of the “Nagorno-Karabakh problem” created by the Armenian separatists. To answer this question we will refer first to Mirza Jamal Javanshir Garabaghli, the vizier of the Azerbaijani Karabakh khanate, who wrote in his book The History of Karabakh (1847):
    "According to the ancient history books the borders of Karabakh region are as given below: the Araz River in the south, from Khudaferin Bridge to Sinig Bridge.
    The eastern border of Karabakh is marked by the River Kura that flows into the River Araz in the village of Javad and runs into the Caspian Sea. The northern border is the River Goran that stretches from Yelizavetpol (Ganja province is meant) to the Kura river which splits and reaches the Araz at different points. In the west it is bordered by the Kushbek, Salvarti and Erikli mountains – the high Karabakh mountain range.”
    A detailed description of Karabakh’s territories and borders during the first period of  Russian occupation and colonialism is drafted on the following basis:
    1. This information was written by an official directly involved in Russia’s governance of Karabakh, in other words, the information is based on official documents;
    2. Further, this is not only grounded in reality and experience, it is also backed up by primary sources. It was not by whim that Mirza Jamal referred to history books to substantiate his position. 
    It is clear that the name “Karabakh” has long applied not just to the political-geographical area “Nagorno-Karabakh” but to the whole territory of Karabakh — its mountains and its plains. In other words, the name "Nagorno-Karabakh” is not a historical toponym, but is a name given to a part of Karabakh in the cause of separatism. Logic supports this argument: if mountainous (Nagorno) Karabakh exists, then plain and lowland Karabakh also exist. This is the reality: there are today both mountainous Karabakh and lowland Karabakh in Azerbaijan. In addition, both lowland and mountainous (Nagorno) Karabakh have been Azerbaijani homelands in all historical periods, home to the people who have the words “gara” and “bagh” in their lexicon. Hundreds of ancient and rare examples of folklore and musical treasures first appeared in Karabakh and are closely associated with this place.
    Several generations of Azerbaijani archaeologists have studied and introduced to the world’s academics the Guruchay culture (Palaeolithic period), the Leylatepe culture (Eneolithic), the Kura – Araz culture (early Bronze Age), the Uzerliktepe culture (middle Bronze Age), the Khojaly-Gedebey culture (late Bronze and early Iron Ages), as well as hundreds of historical monuments of the ancient and medieval periods.  International archaeology has long accepted these monuments as belonging to the history of the Azerbaijani people and these monuments have nothing to do with Armenian history.
    Nagorno-Karabakh lies in the centre of the western regions of the Azerbaijan Republic, part of Karabakh as a whole.  The Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Region was established on the territory of the Azerbaijan Republic in July 1923, under Soviet rule. The region was 4,400 sq.km in area, or 5.1% of the total area of the Azerbaijan Republic. It included the districts of Shusha, Askeran, Hadrut, Mardakert and Martuni (the last three districts had not been so named until then) and the city of Stepanakert (which was called Khankendi until the early years of Soviet rule). Nagorno-Karabakh is an integral part of the present Azerbaijan Republic and is one of the territories to which Armenians were moved on a mass scale from 1820. Today the Autonomy and seven surrounding regions are under occupation by the Armenian Republic.
    The Nagorno-Karabakh problem is rooted in the 18th century, when Armenians were moved from the Iran Plateau and Anadolu and relocated to Karabakh, a determined policy of the Iranian political elite. The Armenians gradually increased in number and began making territorial claims on Azerbaijan. They continued their separatist activities during the Karabakh khanate and organized campaigns by external forces against it. After Russian occupation of the khanate in 1805, the relocation of Armenians there, as well as to Nakhchivan and Irevan, was intensified. In order to formalise this process some paragraphs were even appended to the Turkmenchay Treaty in 1828. The Armenians began making concrete territorial claims on Karabakh, Nakhchivan and Irevan from the beginning of the twentieth century with strong support from Iran and Russia. In pursuit of this goal, Armenians perpetrated genocide in 1918 throughout Azerbaijan. The main aim was to create a "Great Armenia, from sea to sea”. After the establishment of the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic in 1918 Irevan, the historically ancient territory of Azerbaijan was ceded to the Armenians and the issue seemed to be resolved. Further, during Soviet rule Zangazur and Goycha were given to Armenia. Thus, Russia and Iran realized their aims not only to separate Azerbaijan from Turkey, but also to split Nakhchivan from Azerbaijan geographically. However, their repeated attempts to annex Karabakh to Armenia in the Soviet era were in vain.
    Before the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Armenians in Karabakh had already armed and they began operations there in 1988. Large-scale military operations were halted with the signing of a cease-fire in 1994, and Nagorno-Karabakh together with another seven, adjacent, regions of Azerbaijan  – Lachin, Kalbajar, Aghdam, Fizuli, Jabrayil, Gubadli and Zangilan – were occupied by Armenia. The separatist regime in Nagorno-Karabakh declared its “independence” in 1991. This “independence”, which does not comply in any way with international law, rightly remains unrecognized by any country.

    THERE ARE 4 UN DECISIONS The Armenian army must withdraw from Karabakh, but they do not comply. Then they say that Azerbaijan is aggressive.Azerbaijan ends occupation of historical lands. Armenians recruit terrorists from Syria and have no power in Karabakh at the expense of othersIn 1989-1994, the Armenians drove us out of Karabakh, then our army was not strong. There are more than 1 million refugees in Azerbaijan.Let's look at a map in which country is Karabakh located? Azerbaijan. Then let us liberate our lands.That's human rights?NO NO NO  #justiceforkhojaly #justiceforkarabakh    Kim Kardashian's ass is bigger armenian history.

    ATTENTION ❗️❗️❗️

    🇺🇲To the attention of international organizations and the world community!
    Occupying Armenia is recruiting its civilians to fight in the occupied Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan and other surrounding areas. This is unacceptable. Because the Armenian character is known to the world. Tomorrow the whole world will hear that our civilian has died. But it is necessary to ask what the mercenaries brought by you, both civilians and military citizens, as well as from other countries, are doing in Azerbaijan to die. Azerbaijan continues its rightful work. Fighting will not stop until all occupied territories are liberated. If civilian and military citizens of Armenia do not want to die, let them leave their territories!

    🇷🇺Вниманию международных организаций и мирового сообщества!
    Оккупирующая Армения вербует своих мирных жителей для ведения боевых действий в оккупированном Нагорно-Карабахском регионе Азербайджана и других прилегающих районах. Это неприемлемо. Потому что армянский иероглиф известен миру. Завтра весь мир услышит, что наш мирный человек погиб. Но необходимо спросить, что делают в Азербайджане убийцы как мирных, так и военных, а также наемники, привезенные из других стран. Азербайджан продолжает свою законную работу. Бои не прекратятся, пока не будут освобождены все оккупированные территории. Если гражданские и военные граждане Армении не хотят умирать, пусть покинут свои территории!

    İşğalçı Ermənistan işğal etdiyi Azərbaycanın Dağlıq Qarabağ bölgəsində və digər ətraf ərazilərdə öz mülki vətəndaşlarını döyüşə cəlb edir. Bu isə yolverilməz haldır. Çünki erməni xisləti dünyaya bəllidir. Sabah bütün dünyaya car çəkəcəklər ki, mülki vətəndaşımız öldü. Amma soruşan lazımdır ki, sənin istər mülki, istərsə də hərbçi vətəndaşların, həmçinin başqa ölkələrdən gətirdiyin muzdlu qatillər Azərbaycan ərazisində nə gəzir ki, ölsün də.
    Azərbaycan öz haqq işini davam edir. İşğal altında saxlanılan bütün ərazilər azad olunmayana qədər döyüş əməliyyatları dayanmayacaq. Ermənistanın mülki və hərbi vətəndaşları əgər ölmək istəmirlərsə, əraziləri tərk etsinlər!

    The world is experiencing all the conditions and the many specific events and signs that were recorded in the Bible indicating the end of the age and Jesus’ promised second coming. Prophecy is about 1/4 of the Bible letting us know what will happen in the future. Jesus stated in John 14:29 “And now I have told you before it comes, that when it does come to pass, you may believe.” I have created two spaces that cover a good portion of them that have come to pass with other resources that are also trying to bring awareness, preparedness, and hope for what is very soon ahead. God bless.
