I, Ibrahimli Shahriyar Murad oglu, was born on February 27, 2000, in the city of Baku, graduated from secondary school No. 300 in the village of Balajari, after which on April 14, 2018, I was sent to military service.
I served in military unit N of the Nakhchivan region, was demobilized from the army on September 30, 2019. Then I started working in different places.

Before the war, I worked as a security guard. On September 21, 2020, I was recruited for military training. On September 27, the Patriotic War began, and in this war, I began to fight for the freedom of our lands.

As it is known, our lands had been occupied by the Armenian invaders for almost 30 years. We all united into a fist and carried out the orders of our commanders. Fierce fighting broke out along the entire border. We attacked in the direction of Fizuli. Then there were fierce battles for Horadiz and the Burulgan gorge. We witnessed the atrocities and vandalism of Armenians everywhere, they destroyed the cities, villages, and settlements that they left. We also suffered losses during the war. Our army has demonstrated great heroism and bravery.

During our attack in the direction of the Burulgan gorge, 6 people were killed and 11 were wounded as a result of mortar shelling of the enemy. The Armenian invaders everywhere demonstrated cruelty and did not allow the evacuation of our wounded soldiers from the battlefield, even fired at ambulances. On October 14, I received 7 bullet wounds when the enemy attacked in the direction of the bloody valley; the first bullet hit my left arm-2nd bullet hit my right thigh-3rd bullet hit my right toe-4th bullet hit my right ankle-5th bullet hit my left thigh-6th bullet hit in the thigh and broke my leg. The 7th bullet hit me in the shoulder while trying to jump into the trench. The Armenians wanted to kill me with pain.

In that battle, other soldiers were also wounded, unfortunately, we also had fallen heroes, and then our comrades came to our aid. After 5 hours, I was taken as a wounded to a hospital 11 km away in the arms of my fellow soldiers. I received first aid at the Fizuli Central Hospital. From here I was taken to the Agjabadi hospital. On October 15, they operated on my leg and put the ILIZAROV device on. Later I was hospitalized in several hospitals. Thanks to our doctors and nurses, I am slowly recovering.

I was treated in hospitals for about 70 days. On December 17, I was discharged from the military hospital for outpatient treatment, now I am lying at home, I go to the hospital once a week for an examination by a doctor. Although I was wounded in battle, I will go to the defense of my homeland, if need and if the Supreme Commander-in-Chief gives an order
