“We waited to get out of the blockade, not from our homeland”

Tens of thousands of people fleeing Nagorno-Karabakh continue to arrive in Goris, Armenia after a treacherous journey through the Lachin Corridor. Following a nearly ten-month blockade that left the region in famine, those who made it to Armenia say they were waiting for the opening of the corridor, but now they have lost both home and homeland. Azerbaijan’s attack last week on the region was the final push that led the population to the brink of ethnic cleansing.
