Azerbaijan is targeting and shelling civilian areas in Artsakh and Armenia. Clashes in the region have killed hundreds.

“This seems really, really far away and it seems like it’s not about us, but people in our community are affected personally and even if we’re not affected personally, this is a human rights issue,” said protester Hasmik Djoulakian.
