Zangilan (Armenian: Կովսական / Kovsakan) is a town which is de jure located in the Zangilan Rayon of Azerbaijan. Since the Nagorno-Karabakh War it has been administered as part of Kashatagh Region by the de facto independent Republic of Nagorno-Karabakh.

Since the outbreak of the Syrian Civil War, a growing number of Armenian refugees from Syria have chosen to settle in this town, many of them farmers.[2][3][4]
