A rare case in the practice of awarding servicemen: Azerbaijani soldier Mamedov Jalil Gahraman oglu, who died on November 8 during the storming of Shushi in Nagorno-Karabakh, received four medals at once.

These are: "For the Motherland", "For the liberation of Fizuli", "For the liberation of Khojavend" and "For the liberation Shusha".

According to the regional correspondent AZERTAC, Jalil Mammadov was born in 1999. He successfully graduated from high school and Guba State Socio-Economic College. Upon his return from the army, he dreamed of getting a higher education.

The martyr's father, Gahraman Mammadov, said that in the Patriotic War (as the Azerbaijani media call the conflict in Karabakh - noted by the ed.), The son was in the assault detachments that crushed the enemy's positions.

“My son's comrades-in-arms said that he died several hours before the liberation of Shushi. Not far from the location of their assault detachment, a shell exploded, the commander and his charges were seriously wounded. Jalil was pulling the wounded commander from the battlefield when another shell exploded near him. My son died heroically saving a friend. Soon Shusha was released. My son's soul rejoices in heaven. May the Almighty rest the souls of all our martyrs, ”Gahraman Mammadov said.

Jalil was the eldest of the three brothers. He is buried in his native village.

In addition, according to the law of Azerbaijan, the families of the dead servicemen receive a one-time allowance in the amount of 11 thousand manats (this is about 480 thousand rubles at the exchange rate as of January 1, 2020) and monthly payments of 300 manats (about 13 thousand rubles).

In total, from September 27 to November 9, according to the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan, 2,783 servicemen were killed , and more than 100 people were missing.
