Vadim Druzhinin, representative of the Informational Centre of the National Anti-Terrorist Committee (NAC), outlined the outcome of a recent anti-terror operation carried out in Dagestan’s Gimry, from Moscow on Saturday.

Druzhinin confirmed that a “militant” identified as Abdul Nustafaev, who was on the federal wanted list and an active member of Magomed Suleymanov’s “Gimry bandit group” was killed during the NAC’s sting operation.

Nustafaev was the organiser of “the undermining of one of the centers of Irganay hydroelectric power plant in September 2010, as well as numerous attacks on the lives of law enforcement officers and civilians,” according to the NAC representative. He was citing the discovery of an improvised explosive device during an inspection at the time at the Irganay hydroelectric power plant after a fire broke out.

Druzhinin also said that in 2015, Nustafaev “joined ISIS” and that it was well established that he was “the leader of the so-called ‘mining sector’ of militants.”

As a result the NAC have launched a series of counter-terrorist operation in the village of Gimry.
