A prominent member of the U.K.'s House of Lords is warning that the ongoing blockage in Nagorno-Karabakh, a small, landlocked region between Armenia and Azerbaijan, is sparking rampant desperation and could "indeed be an impending genocide." The Baroness Caroline Cox, a longtime member of Parliament's House of Lords, sounded the alarm on the impending crisis during an interview with CBN's Faithwire Thursday, explaining the dire impact the blockage of the Lachin Corridor is having on the mostly Armenian residents of Nagorno-Karabakh. "It's a continuity of aggression by Azerbaijan against Armenia," Cox said, accusing the former of long "trying to carry out ethnic cleansing of the Armenians." Cox, 85, has been no stranger to such international conflicts, traveling globally and often risking her life and safety to bring food, resources, and hope to people in need. She knows Nagorno-Karabakh intimately well, having been to the region around 90 times. "They do need prayers, because they're in a terrible situation," Cox said of those living in Nagorno-Karabakh (an area also known as Artsakh).

The most recent chaos in the region began Dec. 12, when individuals identifying as Azerbaijani protestors reportedly blocked the Lachin corridor, preventing food, medicine, and essential transport in or out of the Nagorno-Karabakh region. Many believe these protestors are actually supported by the Azerbaijan government. "[It's the] only road connecting Armenia with the [area]," Cox said, citing a resulting lack of medicine, food, and fuel. "The situation is now very, very serious. It may indeed be an impending genocide." Cox warned that, with the cold, people could also end up dying from hypothermia, among other horrors. Another issue tied to the dispute is Nagorno-Karabakh's Christian history, with Cox explaining how "some of the most holy Christian places in the world" are inside the region. The Baroness said at least one church has already been destroyed. "The Armenians were the first nation in the world to become Christian," she said. "Some of the oldest churches in the world [are] in that little land of Karabakh." Cox added, "The annihilation of Christians is very much part of the agenda." Watch her explain the terrifying ordeal.
