“Mother, I cannot be a son for you, I am the son of the Motherland.” That is what Aykhan told his mother on March 8. These were the proudest and at the same time, heartbreaking words a mother could hear from her son. A few months later, Aykhan literally became the son of the Motherland…
Aykhan, who left his home and loved ones for the last time on February 23, 2020, went to war without hugging them whom he missed for 9 months. Everyone missed him. However, there was one person who felt the pain of every moment of him. That was Sevda, who was wearing Aykhan's engagement ring on her finger...
On October 18, Aykhan called his family. He talked to everyone. Just 3 days later - on October 21, he was martyred during the fighting in the directions of Fuzuli and Jabrayil.
...On October 24, a plane was seen in the sky of Nakhchivan, which was carrying the bodies of 12 heroes. Each was an example of pride.
On the same day, Aykhan was laid to rest in the cemetery of Khanliglar village, where he was born and grew up.
