Terrorist rocket attack disrupts Christian ceremony in Syria’s Mahardah
“Rustan Magomedovich Aselderov (Abu Muhammad), born in 1981, the leader of the Vilayat Kavkaz section of the Islamic State international terrorist group, was among the militants eliminated alongside four of his close associates,” the FSB said in a statement.
The group were neutralized near Makhachkala, the capital of the Republic of Dagestan, in Russia’s Caucasus region.
Aselderov and four other militants were found hiding out in a house in the village. After the hideout was surrounded, the police started negotiations and asked the militants to surrender. In response, the terrorists fired automatic weapons and were killed by return fire. None of the officers taking part in the operation were injured, RT reported.
