Russia: Security operation kills two after firefight in Ingushetia *GRAPHIC*

Russian Federation, Ali-Yurt, Ingushetia
February 10, 2018 at 15:38 GMT -00:00 · Published

Two individuals, one of whom was thought to have belonged to Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIL/ISIS), were killed during a security operation in woodland near Nazran, Ingushetia on Saturday, according to the National Anti-Terrorism Committee (NAC).

Footage, which appears to have been taken directly from the scene, shows Russian security forces engaged in a firefight with the suspects.

Once the fighting had subdued, Federal Security Service (FSB) specialists entered a supposed hideout where they reportedly found two automatic weapons, two primed improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in the form of a suicide belt, components for manufacturing IEDs, ammunition, grenades and special equipment. These items were destroyed by security personnel at the scene.

In an interview a spokesperson for the NAC, Alexander Polyakov, gave his summary of the operation.

"Two bandits suspected in terrorist activities were blocked in a section of a mountainous woodland south-east part of the village of Ali-Yurt," said Polyakov.

The NAC spokesperson also told reporters that one the militants had been affiliated with Islamic State.

According to available information, one of them was on the federal wanted list "in connection with participation in hostilities on the side of IS."
