NewsBlaze: Azerbaijan-Armenia: A Baseless, Senseless Conflict
Azerbaijan is a peace-loving country that accommodates many ethnic and religion groups.”
“As a Jewess who is constantly witnessing the toll of hate that Moslems show toward the Jewish state of Israel and general intolerance by Muslem societies, I am taken aback by such coexistence accomplished in a Moslem-ruled countries,” says Nurit Greenger in her article ‘Azerbaijan-Armenia: a baseless-senseless conflict‘ published on NewsBlaze.
“Several months ago, I had the honor to be invited to Azerbaijan to witness the ongoing development of a former USSR satellite, now working on its 25-year-old independence. I was impressed by what I saw but, in all fairness, knew that I did not complete my reportage,” she writes in her article.
She says that Azerbaijan is a peace-loving country that accommodates many ethnic and religion groups, while Armenia, on the contrary, is seeking to prolong the conflict and constantly agitates its neighbor in an attempt to escalate the fighting. “For instance, in 2016 a ‘standard’ skirmish, started by the Armenians, took two days to end. 21 Azerbaijani soldiers lost their lives but Azerbaijan managed to take back a strategic hill and secured the safe return of Internally Displaced People (IDP) to their destroyed village, Çocuq Mərcanlı,” Greenber says.
“Çocuq Mərcanlı is a village in the Jabrayil District of Azerbaijan. In 1993, in the course of the Nagorno-Karabakh War, the Armenian army pushed Azerbaijani forces out of the village after gaining control of the nearby hills. The village remained under Armenian control for four months, during which it was completely razed. Having failed to maintain control of the village, the Armenians retreated to the nearby hills.
