Women in Karabakh protest as humanitarian crisis unfolds in the region

Women in Stepanakert held a protest on Thursday, in an attempt to bring global attention to Azerbaijan’s actions in Nagorno-Karabakh. The protest was instigated by Azerbaijan’s move to cut the region’s heating gas supply during freezing winter temperatures, causing a humanitarian crisis. A children’s hospital had to delay surgeries due to the lack of heating gas.

Azerbaijani authorities have cut the gas supply for a second time now this winter. The first time, residents remained without gas for 10 days whilst facing subzero temperatures at night. Three days after announcing that the gas supply was restored, Azerbaijan once again cut the supply of gas.
