Finally, he enlists in the army in 1992 and joins the same battalion as his father. From the very first days, he showed our enemy what he was capable of and he was fighting valiantly in all the battles taking place in Qarabagh and also took active part in liberation of several villages as well. In 1993, February 9th, Armenian armed forces started attacking with heavy artillery our forces that were taking position in Khojavend region to protect the area.
