GROZNY, April 24 (Itar-Tass) —— Thirteen militants were killed and 21 were detained in Chechnya within three months, Chechen Interior Ministry Staff Chief Mokhmad-Emin Dzhamaliyev said on Tuesday.
“Thirteen militants were killed resisting the arrest, among them militant leader Magarbi Timiraliyev who had been operating in the Nozhai-Yurt district,” he said.
The police found two dugouts and 13 arms caches of militants and seized more than 5,000 munitions and over three kilograms of explosives, he said.
“Twenty-one militants were detained in police operations and three militants volunteered to surrender,” he said.
“The remaining militants attempted to destabilize the Northern Caucasus,” Dzhamaliyev said. “Yet thanks to the efficient operations of law enforces Chechnya remained one of the safest constituents of the North Caucasian Federal District.”
“The suppression of terrorism and extremism will remain a priority of the Chechen Interior Ministry until the full liquidation of illegal armed groups and terrorist units in the North Caucasian region of Russia,” speakers at the Tuesday law enforcement meeting said.
