After Azerbaijan declared its independence on May 28, 1918, Baku Council of the People’s Commissars seized the government in the capital. Bolshevik-dashnak armed units committed genocide against the civilians. In June Bolsheviks began large-scale operations to occupy western regions of Azerbaijan. Bolshevik-dashnak units plundered Azerbaijani villages, killed civilians on the way to Shamakhy. Caucasus Islam Army led by Nuri Pasha was sent to help Azerbaijan People’s Republic. Caucasus Islam Army and newly-organized national army units of Azerbaijan defeated bolshevik-dashnak units near Goychay and moved towards Baku. The army units liberated Shamakhy, Kurdamir. On September 15, Caucasus Islam Army liberated Baku and the official parade of Caucasus Islam Army and Azerbaijani troops was held the next day.
