Meanwhile, some Armenian families came to mourn their loved ones buried in Yerablur on Saturday, Jan 30, 2021. Some others are attending a funeral. Yerablur is the Armenian military cemetery located on a hilltop in the outskirts of capital Yerevan, Armenia.
Since 1988, Yerablur has become the burial place of Armenian soldiers who lost their lives during the armed conflict in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh.
Many soldiers were killed in the Nagorno-Karabakh war of 2020 that ended with Armenia’s defeat against Azerbaijan. Armenians march with candles to the cemetery of Yerablur in Yerevan to honour the fallen soldiers in the war of Nagorno-Karabakh against Azerbaijan. (VX Photo/ Vudi Xhymshiti)
