He was deeply loved by his colleagues. In February 1991 Yusif Aliyev’s first combat test began in Goranboy region. Armed armenian militants often attacked the villages such as; Buzlug, Maneshid, Erkej and cut the roads to the villages. They repeatedly ambushed our armed forces in those areas. On the 24thof February in the morning the village of Maneshid was attacked by approximately 500 armenian bandits. The forces were unequal. The Police squad was trying to maintain its position against the enemy and created a plan to target them from different directions. At first all went as planned but due to the considerable loss, lack of ammunition the enemy was difficult to be defeated. So when Aliyev realized that, he created a group of 14 people and jumped into a melee. Armenians could not react and were scattered from surprise attack.
On the 14th of September 1991 the enemy had attacked the village of Buzlug this time. The group went into a fierce fight that exhausted the ammunition of the soldiers. Yusif was able to bring ammunitions to Buzlug under the shower of bullets at the cost of his life.
