Attacks on civilians
On December 31, in Nazran (Ingushetia), unidentified persons, who moved in a car, shelled another car driven by Abo Aushev, a 28-year-old resident of the village of Surkhakhi. As a result, Ibragim Belkharoev, a 46-year-old great-grandson of Sheikh Batal-Haji Belkhoroev, who was a passenger of the second car, was killed. The driver Aushev was hospitalized with serious wounds. Ibragim Belkharoev is a descendant of Sheikh Batal-Haji Belkhoroev, who headed one of the trends of Islam in Ingushetia in the 19th-early 20th centuries. However, the descendant received no religious education and was not a sheikh. He had close ties with the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov.
