MOSCOW, April 15. /ITAR-TASS/. Four suspected militants have apparently been killed during a special operation in Makhachkala, the capital of the Russian North Caucasus republic of Dagestan, a spokesman for Russia’s National Antiterrorism Committee said Tuesday.
“The active phase of the special operation is over. Armed resistance on the part of bandits has been suppressed. Operational and investigative activities will be continued in daylight,” the committee said. Three law enforcers were injured in the operation. The National Antiterrorism Committee said the suspects were blocked in a house in Makhachkala after operational reports were received.
After two children and a woman were evacuated from the house, “the bandits opened fire from automatic weapons on law enforcement officers”, the committee said. After the residents of nearby houses were evacuated, the active phase of the counterterrorism operation started.
Russia’s law enforcement agencies continue fighting militants in Dagestan over 13 years since the battle phase of the second war against Islamist separatists in the neighboring Chechnya came to an end in 2000. Attacks on security officials and civilians occur from time to time in Dagestan, Ingushetia and Kabardino-Balkaria.
