MOSCOW, October 2. /TASS/. Three militants, including an organizer of murders of policemen and civilians, have been liquidated in Russia’s North Caucasian republic of Dagestan, a spokesman for the National Anti-terrorist Committee (NAC) told TASS on Sunday.
"Three militants were neutralized by officers of the Russian Federal Security Service. They have been preliminarily identified. Among them is the leader of the Tabasaransky illegal armed group, Magomednabi Orudzhev, who, according to the National Anti-terrorist Committee’s data, was the organizer of the attack on the Dzhemikenstky traffic police station in February and the murder of two police officers in March, 2016," the spokesman said, adding that the man was behind the murder of hunters who had accidentally run into a militants’ camp.
According to the National Anti-terrorist Committee, a counter-terrorist operation regime was imposed in Dagestan’s Tabasaransky districts from 04:30 a.m. Moscow time.
"Local residents reported that a group of persons involved in terrorist activities was seen near the settlements of Uluz, Urzig and Akka. A group of armed people was spotted in a mountainous forest near the village of Akka. When asked to surrender, the men opened gunfire," the spokesman said, adding that the armed men were liquidated by return fire.
Weapons and munitions were seized at the clash site. Neither civilians nor law enforcers were hurt.
