As a result of a two-century genocide against Azerbaijanis, hundreds of settlements were destroyed and thousands of Azerbaijanis were brutally killed by a large-scale bloody action. As a result of consistent ethnic cleansing, genocide and aggression carried out by Armenians against Azerbaijanis over the years, thousands of people were forced to leave their villages. The policy of genocide against Azerbaijanis was not limited to the city of Baku. Armenian Dashnaks brutally killed Azerbaijanis in 53 villages of Shamakhi, Guba, Khachmaz, Lankaran, Hajigabul, Salyan and other regions.
