Taghavard, Martuni: Half Armenian, Half Azerbaijani

Click CC for English. 

Some of the most intense battles of the Karabakh War took place in Martuni’s Taghavard village. After the fall of Hadrut, Azerbaijani forces moved towards Martuni’s border villages. They entered Taghavard village and attempted to advance their position.

The villagers were the first to defend their homes and were shortly joined by the defense army. Today, a section of the village called Kaller Taghavard remains Armenian, while the other half is under Azerbaijani control.

CIVILNET is in the Armenian-controlled Kaller Taghavard in Karabakh’s Martuni region.
