In the line of fire: Life in Armenian border village goes on despite Azeri shootings

The village of Nerkin Karmiraghbyur that has about 1,150 residents about 200 kilometers to the northeast of capital Yerevan is only about half a kilometer from the Armenian border with Azerbaijan.

Border shootings affecting life in this village are a usual occurrence despite the formal ceasefire with Azerbaijan signed about two decades ago.

Nerkin Karmiraghbyur residents say that they have gotten used to living literally under fire and that their life gets back to “normalcy” very quickly even after the fiercest of the attacks.

While housing and infrastructure in the village bear the traces of shootings, the local mayor fears most for people’s health, especially children’s psychological wellbeing.
