Law enforcers' special operation is this year's second in Sunzha District

The operative-search operations in the Sunzha District of Ingushetia were preceded by a special operation conducted in March, during which an alleged militant was killed.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on May 13, operative-search actions were launched over the Assa River in the Sunzha District. Local villagers were warned not to visit the area in question, a source from the district administration has informed.

The special operation, launched on May 13, became the second in the Sunzha District since March 4. On that day, during a special operation in the village of Alkun, a man was killed – supposedly, a visitor from Dagestan. According to law enforcers, he had weapons, foodstuffs and a sleeping bag on him. No one else suffered during that special operation.

In 2019, the republic saw four armed incidents; the last one was on December 31, when, at the attack on a traffic police post in Magas, two people were killed – a law enforcer and an alleged militant. Four others were wounded: three law enforcers and one alleged militant.

The "Caucasian Knot" is publishing materials with monthly, quarterly and annual figures of the victims of armed conflicts in Northern Caucasus in the section "North Caucasus – Statistics of Victims". Annual statistics is also presented there in the form of infographics.
