TBILISI, August 29 (Itar-Tass) —— A member of the group of saboteurs was destroyed in a special operation, which the Georgian Interior Ministry is carrying out to release the hostages they took, spokesperson for the Georgian Interior Ministry Salome Makharadze told reporters on Wednesday.
“The Interior Ministry is carrying out an operation to release several groups of hostages,” he said. “A member of the group of saboteurs was destroyed” in a special operation to release the last group of hostages in the shootout, she added.
Several injured people were taken to several hospitals in the Telavi district in Georgia as a result of the special operation. They were not identified yet.
The special operation is underway in Georgia near the Dagestani section of the Georgian-Russian border in the forest in the Lopota gorge. “The group of saboteurs, which Georgian policemen are chasing down, presumably entered Georgia from Dagestan,” Georgian television companies reported.
