Three North-Ossetian women suspected of links with militants

Kubaev sisters and Absalamova, residents of the Mozdok District, have been put on the international wanted list for their participation in terrorist organizations, including in Syria, the Russia's FSB (Federal Security Bureau) has reported.

"According to available data, the Kubaev sisters, 23 and 26 years old, and A. Absalamova, 27, had voluntarily joined illegal armed formations (IAFs)," the FSB has announced.

The FSB asserts that the North-Ossetian women "are actively participating in combat actions, including in Syria," the "Interfax" writes.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that in November 2018, two women-residents of North Ossetia, G. Marzoeva, 33, and O. Bichenova, 28, were suspected of links with Syrian militants. They are also on the wanted list.
