Clashes have erupted again over Nagorno-Karabakh, where a recent flare-up of violence between Azerbaijani and Armenian forces has left dozens of people dead.
One Ezidi soldier fighting in the front line of the Nagorno-Karabakh army is among the casualties.On April 1 and 2, the Azerbaijani military started to launch attacks on Armenian and Nagorno-Karabakh positions, resulting in casualties on both sides. The 20-year-old Ezidi soldier named Karam Sloyan of the Nagorno-Karabakh army who was reported among the dead, was apparently beheaded. Pictures of Azerbaijani soldiers holding Sloyan´s decapitated head surfaced on VKontakte, a popular social network among Eastern Europeans.Soon after, an ISIS-style video emerged on the internet, showing Azerbaijanis holding the severed head of Sloyan like a trophy fish.Sloyan was from the town of Ashtarak in Aragatsotn Province where many of Armenia´s Ezidis live.
Similar clashes between Armenia and Azerbaijan erupted in December 2015, resulting in the death of Sidar Aloyan, another JEzidi who fought for Armenia.Turkey has in the meantime pledged its support to the Muslim-dominated Azerbaijan against Nagorno-Karabakh and Armenia.
