At 6:30 a.m. Moscow time of November 24, in Ingushetia, the counterterrorist operation (CTO) legal regime was introduced in the city of Nazran. Law enforcers cordoned off a private house in Abadiev Street. The armed men who were inside the house refused to surrender. They let out a woman who stayed with them in the cordoned-off house, while they themselves opened fire and killed two fighters of special forces. As a result of the armed clash, two suspected militants were killed. No civilians suffered, since residents of the houses located next to the place of the special operation were evacuated. According to a source from the law enforcement bodies, the killed suspects were identified as Iliev father and son. When clearing the ruins at the place of the special operation, FSB agents discovered a hiding with a large number of weapons and ammunition. The CTO legal regime was lifted at 3:00 p.m.
On November 26, the CTO legal regime was introduced within the territories of the Kazbek, Kizilyurt, and Khasavyurt Districts of Dagestan. According to an official from the operational headquarters, in the special operation zone, law enforcers are engaged in search for members of illegal armed formations (IAFs) and their possible accomplices.
