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.

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