International Christian Concern visits Artsakh to assess humanitarian situation

ICC had the rare privilege of visiting Artsakh. Here is a report with our findings. Our conclusion was that the people there desperately need urgent help.

"Our field trip doubly confirmed our position that the situation in Artsakh is an urgent, ongoing case of Christian persecution. Every interview, including those with the most rural villagers, made it clear that locals had a strong understanding that the recent Artsakh war was a case of Christian genocide initiated and made possible by Turkey. They further underscored that Turkey initiated this latest genocide to successfully posture itself as an undisputed superpower in the Middle East. In other words, the mass persecution of Christians became politically and militarily legitimized as a state tool."
