National Geographic shared Instagram post on destruction committed by Armenians in Azerbaijan’s Aghdam city

Baku, January 29, AZERTAC

National Geographic has posted photos on its Instagram page highlighting the destruction perpetrated by Armenians in the liberated from the occupation Aghdam city of Azerbaijan.

“Once populated by about 40,000, the recently recaptured Azerbaijani city of Aghdam stands in ruins after nearly three decades of occupation by Armenian forces. Only the main mosque was left intact; other buildings were demolished or stripped bare in the years since the city fell in 1993 during the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over Nagorno-Karabakh, which unravelled following the collapse of Soviet Union. The brutal and protracted war displaced more than a million people from both sides. The most recent flareup of hostilities, in September, lasted 44 days and came to an end with a peace deal brokered by Russia, which resulted in the deployment of Russian peacekeepers to the Nagorno-Karabakh region and Azerbaijan reclaiming most of its territories lost in the 1990s war,” the post said.
