The Armenian-Yezidi Defense of Syunik

In Armenia’s southern Syunik Province, which now borders Azerbaijan, there are military positions that are protected by volunteer soldiers.

In the village of Agarak, there stands the military unit led by Volodya Avetisyan. CivilNet traveled to the military post where we met with Ozman Kaloyan, a Yezidi who came from his native village of Khoronk in the Armavir region to protect the border.
