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. Horadiz is temporarily center of Fuzuli Rayon due to Fuzuli's occupation by Armenians since 23 August 1993.


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.[5]
