Terror Continues in North Caucasus
According to local sources, four residents from Chechnya, Ingushetia and Karachay-Cherkessia were kidnapped and another four residents of Ingushetia were killed.
On December 6th, a group of Kadyrovites and FSB agents organized a joint punishment operation in Karachay-Cherkessia and kidnapped two residents of the republic. The joint punishment operation was carried out in the village of Erkin-Shakhar in the republic’s Adyge-Khablskogo region. Two residents of the village were abducted. Later, the occupation media claimed that both of their hostages fought under the command of famous Chechen field commander Shamil Basayev in 2000. The fates and whereabouts of the hostages are unknown.
On the same day, a resident of Chechnya’s mountainous Nozhai-Yurt area was also kidnapped by a group of Kadyrovites. The victim was a 49-year old farmer from the village of Gansol-Chu, which is in Nozhai-Yurt district. He was charged with providing food to the Chechen mujahedeen. During his interrogation, he was tortured and then released when his relatives paid a bribe in exchange for his life. The puppet sources claimed that their investigation will continue, but they released the man because he confessed to the crime.
Mousa Torshkayev, a resident of Ingushetia, appealed to Ingush human rights organization “MASHR” about the kidnapping of his brother, Israel Torshkayev, who was born in 1974. According to his statement, on November 18th, at around 10:00pm, an attack was witnessed very close to their residence in Nazran. After a half an hour, Israel went out to look at what happened. When he came back home, around 50 armed and camouflaged FSB agents arrived in cars and trucks. They demanded the documents for his brother’s car, VAZ-21099 without any explanation. During this time they also carried out an illegal search of the house. They could not find anything but they said they must investigate the issue and put his brother in an armored Gazelle, which had no plate and drove to an unknown destination. Since then they have not heard anything about Israel Torshkayev.
On December 7th, FSB agents and Russian Federation Interior Troops organized an ambush in Arshty, which is in Ingushetia’s Sunzha region. The occupant media sources claim that four “suspected” militants were killed. However, a local resident said that all of the victims were ordinary civilians. On the other hand, Russian invaders organized another operation in the village of Galashki in the Sunzha region. There is no clear news from the village yet.
