Azeri woman tries to cross Karabakh border

PanARMENIAN.Net - Azeri police detained an 76-year-old woman in an attempt to cross Karabakh border with a white flag in her hands, Azadlyq reported.

Zarifa Safaraliyeva, the mother of 8, took the step because of Azeri authorities’ unacceptable treatment of her 5 sons, who became disabled in Karabakh war.

The woman complained that her sons were beaten up and ridiculed over their disabilities, with local police taking no effort to protect them.

“I gave 5 of my sons to the war, only to have them back disabled. My sons also have large families; one of them has 15 kids. They were drafted into war, and I was promised compensation. Now, the authorities wouldn’t hear of it. That’s the reason I want to go over to Armenian side with my family,” the elderly resident of Guzanly village said.

The spokesmen of Armenian and Artsakh Defense Ministries, Artsrun Hovhannisyan and Senor Hasratyan haven’t yet commented on the information above.
