At least 21 people suffered in the course of the armed conflict in Northern Caucasus in July 2016, of whom 17 persons were 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.

All the July victims were registered in Dagestan. During armed clashes and special operations, 13 alleged members of the armed underground were killed, as well as two law enforcers (four others were wounded). Two civilians also perished in the attacks.

In other regions of the North-Caucasian Federal District (NCFD), namely, in Kabardino-Balkaria, Karachay-Cherkessia, Ingushetia, North Ossetia-Alania, Stavropol Territory and Chechnya, in July 2016 no victims of the armed conflict were recorded.
