BISHKEK, July 17. /TASS/. The militants, who were killed and detained during a special mission in Kyrgyzstan on Thursday, were members of the Islamic State, the national security committee reported on Friday.
"On July 16, 2015, in Bishkek, the national security committee had a special anti-terror mission against militants of the Islamic State international terrorist organization," the security committee’s press service said. "This underground group was preparing for terror acts on July 17 during the celebration of Eid al-Fitr and an attack on the aviation base in the city of Kant in northern Kyrgyzstan, where the militants planned to seize weapons."
The security forces killed six militants: four during a special mission in Bishkek and two in the village called Lebedinovka.
"Another seven people are detained," the security committee said.
The report reads the militants were led by a Kazakh national Zhanbolat Amirov, who earlier was sentenced in Kyrgyzstan, but escaped the prison.
"Investigation is underway, and we continue searching for other active members of the organization and their allies," the security committee said adding four law enforcers had been injured in the special mission.
