As a result of a joint operation, the FSB and the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) have neutralized an inactive unit affiliated with the terrorist organization "Islamic State" (IS) banned in Russia. The inactive unit involved four people, one of whom was killed in Derbent and three others were detained. This was reported by the National Antiterrorist Committee (NAC).

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on March 5, law enforcers cordoned off several houses in the area of the Buynaksk Street in Derbent. A local resident was killed in a shootout.
