The counterterrorist operation (CTO), conducted in Makhachkala, during which law enforcers killed two militants, was the first in Dagestan in the last eight months. The previous CTO was carried out on September 10, 2021, in the Buynaksk District.

The previous CTO was undertaken by law enforcers on September 10, 2021 in the Buynaksk District near the village of Talgi. According to sources, the casualties were later identified as Urudj Ramazanov and Eiruz Abdulaev.

Then, law enforcers posted a video from the CTO venue. Social network users noted that some belongings owned, according to law enforcers, by assassinated militants, were unlikely of being kept and used in the forest.
