Russian Special Forces (Spetsnaz) neutralized Shakhban Gasanov and a group of militants in Khasavyurt on Tuesday. Gasanov, purportedly a professed adherent of the Islamic State and the alleged leader of 'Kizlyar Group,' was preparing for terrorist activities in the North Caucasus, according to the Russian National Anti-terror Committee (NAK). Spetsnaz militants stormed the building, where the group was barricading up with weapons and other military equipment. No injuries have been reported.
