ROSTOV-ON-DON, November 2 /TASS/. The North Caucasus District Military Court on Monday sentenced an Islamic State (a terrorist organization, which is banned in Russia) to 17 years in jail for taking part in mass riots in Dagestan and teaching terrorism, a court source told TASS.
"Magomedov was found guilty of committing grave crimes linked to mass riots, teaching terrorist skills; membership of an illegal armed unit in Syria as well as illegal trafficking in fire arms and ammunition. The court sentenced him to 17 years in a top security prison on multiple counts," the source said.
During pleadings, the prosecutor demanded 25 years in prison for Magomedov.
In November 2012, Gadzhi Magomedov took part in mass riots in one of the regions in the Republic of Dagestan and put up resistance to police. The protesters demanded that police release 3 people detained at Makhachkala airport who were suspected of illegal trade in arms and ammunition. After that, Magomedov left for Syria to learn terrorist methods and skills. By the end of his training, he decided to take part in battles against Syria’s government troops on the side of IS.
In October 2014, Magomedov was detained in Egypt, which deported him to Russia.
