Fizuli is a rayon of Azerbaijan. It was named after the Turkic poet Fuzûlî. Its capital is the town of Fizuli. The western half, including capital Fizuli, has been controlled by the breakway Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, as part of its Hadrut Province, since the Nagorno-Karabakh War. Due to Resolution 874 of the United Nations Security Council, these lands are considered occupied by local Armenian forces.[3]

IDP's from Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions were moved to Fuzuli rayon from tent settlements around the country. The IDPs live in new houses built by the government.[4]
