MOSCOW, April 3 (Itar-Tass) —— Three more militants from the gang of a Turkish mercenary were killed in Dagestan, the National Counter Terrorism Committee told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
“The group of armed militants was traced by the republican operative staff and the Russian Interior Forces servicemen in the Sergokali district of Dagestan,” the Committee said.
A forest on the outskirts of the Kadirkent village was blocked in the counter terrorism operation and three militants were killed in a clash. “One serviceman of the Russian Interior Ministry Forces died,” the Committee said.
The dead militants were members of the so-called Sergokali gang led by Turkish mercenary Muhanned aka Sheikh Abdusalim. “The gang was involved in a number of terror attacks, attempts upon the life and killings of civilians and policemen. The counter terrorism operation area is cordoned and the search for militants continues,” the Committee said.
Three militants were killed in the same area earlier. All of them were identified. One dead militant, Gusen Magomedov, was wanted federally for murders, assaults and illegal weapons. Another militant was identified as Rashid Gazaliyev aka Muaz, born in the Kazakh town of Atyrau in 1970, an active member of the gang since 2009. The National Counter Terrorism Committee said he was close to the gang leader. Gazaliyev took part in the blasting of a TV and cell phone tower in the Sergokali district and the shooting at repairmen on May 13, 2010. The gang killed eight people and injured four in that attack.
