In Quarter 3 of 2016, 56 people fell victims to armed conflict in Dagestan

In July-September of 2016, at least 56 people fell victims to the armed conflict in  Dagestan; among them 45 were killed and 11 wounded. These are the findings of the "Caucasian Knot" based on its own materials and information from other open sources.

Among those perished there were 4 civilians, 5 law enforcers and 36 persons allegedly involved in the activities of illegal armed formations (IAFs). One civilian and 10 law enforcers were wounded.

The above statistics cannot reflect with absolute accuracy the real number of victims. Not all the data gets into news reports. It is not always possible to verify the truthfulness of law enforcers' statements; and sometimes new data about the events of the reporting period become known after the publication of statistics by the "Caucasian Knot".

In Quarter 1 of 2016, at least 39 persons fell victims to the armed conflict in Dagestan; 16 of them were killed and 23 - wounded.

In Quarter 2, at least 62 persons fell victims; 37 of them were killed and 25 - wounded.
