Nor Aznaberd (Armenian: Նոր Ազնաբերդ; Azerbaijani: İtqıran, anglicized: Itgyran) is a village in the Zaritap Municipality of the Vayots Dzor Province in Armenia. The village was populated by Azerbaijanis before the exodus of Azerbaijanis from Armenia after the outbreak of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.[2] The Armenian population of Nor Aznaberd migrated from the village of Aznaberd in Nakhchivan. The village was renamed Nor Aznaberd (meaning "New Aznaberd" in Armenian) referring to their origin. To the south of Nor Aznaberd are the ruins of a fortress.
