Fuzuli or Fizuli is a rayon of Azerbaijan. It was named after the Turkic poet Fuzûlî. Its capital is the town of Füzuli. The western half, including the capital, 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] Horadiz is temporarily center of Fuzuli Rayon due to Fuzuli's occupation by Armenians since 23 August 1993.
