In Quarter 4 of 2023, in armed conflict in Northern Caucasus one person was killed and three were wounded

At least four people suffered during the armed conflict in Northern Caucasus in the period from October 1 to December 31, 2023; one person was killed, and four others were wounded. These are the results of the calculations run by the "Caucasian Knot" based on its own materials and information from open sources.

The presented statistics cannot accurately reflect the precise number of victims. Not all data is included in the news bulletins. It is not always possible to check how true the statements of law enforcement bodies are; and new data on the events of the reporting period become known sometimes after the publication of statistics by the "Caucasian Knot".

On November 22, 2023, as part of a counterterrorist operation (CTO) conducted in Sunzha, law enforcers, killed a man who had opened fire on them. The casualty was suspected of aiding Amirkhan Gurazhev and Adam Ozdoev, who had been announced wanted after committing an attack on the road-and-patrol (DPS) post located on the Ingush-North-Ossetian border, a law enforcement source has informed, adding that a SOBR (Special Rapid Response Unit) fighter was wounded in the shootout.

On December 25, 2023, in the Sunzha District of Ingushetia, policemen detained two people after a shootout. The police received a report that in Karabulak, a Lada Granta car was shelled from a Mercedes-Benz car; the driver of the former one was wounded. A policeman tried to stop the Mercedes, but the driver continued moving. Policemen fired several shots at the car, which soon collided with another car and came to a stop.

"The driver and the wounded passenger tried to escape, but were detained. A man who was walking near the post at the time of the incident was also wounded in his leg," the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) reported. A traumatic pistol converted into a combat one, two knives and ammunition were found in the Mercedes.

Earlier, in Quarter 3 of 2023, there were no reports of any victims. A year ago, in Quarter 4 of 2022, four people perished.
