A Piece of Hadrut Remains Armenian

Click CC for English. 

After the fall of Hadrut, Hayk Khanumyan relocated to the western part of the Hadrut region, gathered a detachment of troops, and began organizing the self-defense of the villages. Volunteer soldier Angel Galstyan and Armenian Defense Army soldier Gary Abrahamyan and his men joined Khanumyan’s detachment.

A group of about sixty has been defending the villages of Khtsaberd and Hin Tagher since mid-October. They carried out military missions and prevented enemy advancements towards Lisagor and Shushi. Today the villages of Khtsaberd and Hin Tagher, as well as Mount Dizapayt and Kataro Monastery are all under Armenian control.

The CivilNet team spent two days with the detachment to hear their stories of war and hopes for the future.
