An armed militant killed in Dagestan

In Dagestan, in the course of a counterterrorist operation (CTO) in the Botlikh District, law enforcers killed a militant from the terrorist organization "Islamic State" (IS) banned in Russia.

Today, the CTO legal regime has been introduced in the village of Andi, reported the headquarters of the National Antiterrorist Committee (NAC).

Law enforcers cordoned off a house, in which the militant was hiding. The man was killed after he had refused to lay down his arms.

"According to the operative information, he was identified as Yunus Khabibov, a wanted suspect, who swore allegiance to the IS and who carried out its tasks as the leader of a militants grouping, which was active in the mountainous woodland," reported a source from the NAC as quoted by the RIA "Novosti".

No civilians or law enforcers were injured.
