Despite the exodus caused by the occupation of part of the village, children continue to be found here, houses are built for the displaced: Dutch journalist visits Goris

I visited the Armenian-Azerbaijani border this weekend at
the spot where the Lachin corridor is blocked. Dutch journalist Thomas van
Linge made an X (Twitter) post on this.

“At this checkpoint Azerbaijani forces block all traffic
between Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh, leaving 120K Armenians under siege in
Karabakh, for over 8 months. A couple dozen trucks, packed with food, have been
stuck on the border for over a month.

The general area around the town of Goris is the site of
sporadic attacks by Azerbaijani forces, including the heaviest round of
fighting in September of last year. Damaged vehicles from last year’s attack
could be found by the side of the road abandoned by the Armenian military

The village of Shurnukh further south is in a very difficult
position. Following the 2020 war part of the village was occupied by
Azerbaijan. This led to a huge exodus with only 30 or so people remaining. Yet
children continue to be found here, houses are built for the displaced,” the
journalist wrote.
