Between March 30 and April 3, 1918, Baku Soviet and Dashnak Armenian armed groups fought against Azerbaijanis in Baku and various regions of Baku governorate, as well as in Shamakhi, Guba, Khachmaz, Lankaran, Hajigabul, Salyan, Zangezur, Karabakh, Nakhchivan and other areas, they committed genocide. According to official sources, about 12,000 Azerbaijanis were killed and tens of thousands people became lost as a result of the genocide. During the March massacres, Armenians destroyed many ancient buildings, historical monuments, including sanctuaries, the Ismailiyya building, which is considered one of the pearls of world architecture, by firing cannons. The minarets of the Juma and Tzapir mosques were severely damaged as a result of the firing by the military fleet stationed in the Caspian Sea. The armed gangs burned the corpses of the people they brutally killed in the caravanserai. Due to its cruelty and scale, the March 1918 genocides are one of the bloodiest tragedies not only in the history of Azerbaijan, but also in the history of humanity.
