Azerbaijan became an object of Armenian terrorism already since the beginning of 20th century. The terror acts reached their strong swing during first Russian revolution in 1905-1907 and in 1918-1920. Armenian terrorists acted with special cruelty. They spared neither elderly nor women and children, leaving behind burned and destroyed villages. Since the end of the 1980s, Azerbaijan has again become the main target of the Armenian terrorism. As a result, many of Azerbaijani civilians were killed and wounded.
