The commission indicated that 88,000 Armenians have entered Armenia from Nagorno-Karabakh so far, and the number may reach 120,000. More than half of the Armenians in Nagorno-Karabakh were displaced after Azerbaijan attacked its territory. Many people in a state of fear and exhaustion gathered at the registration stations, said Kabita Belani, the representative of the commission in Armenia.


"They have been under siege for months," her representative said. "When they come, they are in terror, they are worried, they are scared and they want answers," the UN official said, stating that 1/3 of the refugees are children, and many of them are separated from their parents. The Armenians decided to emigrate after the Armenian insurgents in the territory surrendered and agreed to disarm due to an attack by Azerbaijan. Following this, the Armenians who said that they do not want to be a part of Azerbaijan are migrating to their historic land.
