A man killed in Ingushetia identified as a suspect involved in IS

One of two persons killed during a counterterrorist operation (CTO) carried out in the Nazran District was wanted in the case of involvement in combat actions in Syria.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that today, two suspected militants have been killed in Ingushetia.

Both men were armed. Law enforcers cordoned them off in the forest near the village of Ali-Yurt. When offered to surrender, the suspects opened fire from submachine guns, the National Antiterrorism Committee (NAC) reports.

According to the NAC, near the deceased suspects, the law enforcers found two "suicide bombers' belts," ammunition and grenades. No law enforcers were injured.

"One of them was on the federal wanted list for his involvement in combat actions on the side of the terrorist organization "Islamic State" (IS, earlier ISIL), banned in Russia," reports the NAC's website.
