MAKHACHKALA, April 13. /TASS/. The regime of a counterterrorism operation has been introduced in the village of Leninkent in a suburb of the capital of Dagestan, Makhachkala, a spokesman for the Russian National Antiterrorism Committee (NAC) Operational Headquarters in the North Caucasus republic told TASS.
"The regime of a counterterrorism operation was introduced at 16:00 in the village of Leninkent of the Kirovsky District of Makhachkala. Events to search for militants and their accomplices are underway," the spokesman said.
Earlier it was reported that law enforcers blocked a number of streets in Leninkent in the morning. "Operative information on location of gang members and their accomplices is being worked out, targeted checks are underway," a source in law enforcement structures of the North Caucasus Federal District said.
Russia’s law enforcement agencies continue fighting militants in the North Caucasus over 15 years since the battle phase of the second war against Islamist separatists in Chechnya came to an end in 2000. Attacks on security officials and civilians occur from time to time in Dagestan, Ingushetia and Kabardino-Balkaria.
