On December 28, 2014, by the order of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, he was appointed Commander of Unit, the most dangerous, strategic post of the Armed Forces. During his command, in 2015-2017, Armenian armed forces suffered heavy losses in the direction of Agdam-Terter-Goranboy.

During April battles, he led the fighting on Agdam-Tartar-Goranboy directions on the frontline. During the battle, he and the soldiers destroyed Armenians’ 24-year-old "Ohanyan defence line" for 2 hours and climbed the Talish heights, destroyed 21 Armenian posts, and eliminated 7 strategic heights from the occupiers.
