Azerbaijan destroys 10,000 Armenian headstones in ancient cemetery in Nakhichevan

Azerbaijani military destroying 10,000 ancient headstones in an Armenian cemetary grounds, some of these headstones were 1,500 years old. Azerbaijan is doing this to erase any history of Armenians who have lived there for thousands of years, same as they have done in turkey and azerbaijan. Video evidence and photographs of military systematically destroying/removing all the headstones and dumping them into the Araxes river.

by 1998 there were only 2,000 "khatchkars" (headstones) at the cemetary, from the original 10,000. but the worst was yet to come, reports emerged that Azeri authorities were purposefully destroying the Armenian khatchkars (cross-stones)

the International Armenian community tried to raise the alarm, in 1998 thanks to their please, UNESCO ordered the destruction to stop, but the demolition began again in 2002, in december of 2005 eyewitnesses across the Araxes river s

  • I recommend you go to war over this. It's the only way to solve your problems. A war of genocide is the next logical step.

  • Armenia created too many problems for both Azerbaijan and Turkey. What Azerbaijan decides to do is none of Armenia's business. I'm sure if the Armenians wanted the headstones, Azerbaijan would have gladly shipped them over. If you're pissed, solve your own problems. You lobby the world to fix your problems like Israel. Azerbaijan are our Turkic brothers. Mess with them, we'll come after you.

      "None of Armenia's business"? do you realize how stupid you sound? You think you can just destroy our national treasures and landmarks and we wont care or notice? "im sure if Armenia wanted the headstones, Azerbaijan would have gladly shipped them over" evil son of a bitch...thats why they were secretly destroying them for years, then UNESCO ordered them to stop, they did, and then resumed destroying them once the worlds attention was off... Try as you will, you can More..

  • Two more things. Armenia didn't exist 12,000 years ago. We are restoring churches. We have been restoring a 1,700 year old church in Eastern Turkey. We also preserve Virgin Marry's last house in Kusadasi, Turkey. We have many Christian sites that are protected and being restored, St. John the Apostles tomb was recently found by Archaeologists in Eastern Turkey too. The fact that we didn't destroy countless Christian Churches speakers volumes of who we are. You are a blatant liar.
