MOSCOW, November 22. /TASS/. A militant group incorporated into the Islamic State, a terrorist organization outlawed in Russia, has been neutralized in Nalchik and a workshop for the production of home-made explosive devices has been rendered harmless, a spokesman for the National Anti-terrorist Committee told TASS on Sunday.
"In a counter terrorist operation conducted in (Russia’s North Caucasian) Republic of Kabardino-Balkaria, officers of the Russian Federal Security Service and Interior Ministry neutralized a militant group incorporated into the international terrorist organization Islamic State. Eleven bandits were spotted at a fortified base located in a mountain forest. They were killed when they tried to break away from the blocked area," the spokesman said.
According to the National Anti-terrorist Committee, this group recruited fighters for terrorist groups and sent them to Syria.
"Apart from that, the group was plotting a series of high-profile crimes in North Caucasus, including with the use of home-made explosive devices in crowded places," the spokesman said.
Law enforcers found a dugout workshop for the manufacture of explosive devices where they seized two ready-made devices. "Approaches to the base were mined, the dugout was masked and equipped for a long-term stay," the spokesman said.
Apart from that, law enforcers seized a large number of firearms and munitions.
No casualties were reported from among civilians and law enforcers.
