Emotional footage of liberated Kalbajar

‘Azerbaijan in Focus’ is pleased to show video footage of the Azerbaijani Kalbajar region, recently liberated from Armenian occupation after 27 years. Released by the Azerbaijani Defence Ministry and posted by Turan News, this shows the beauties of the region, including fertile nature and Caucasian Albanian churches and other structures, which bear testament to the historic Azerbaijani presence in the area. The footage also provides evidence of the deliberate destruction by fire of Azerbaijani houses by retreating Armenian occupiers as part of their systematic ‘scorched earth’ policy.
