The so-called commander of the Dagestan front Rappani Khalilov has been killed in a special operation on the outskirts of Kizilyurt, the press service of the Dagestani Interior Ministry told Itar-Tass on Tuesday. Khalilov comes from Buinaksk. The special operation to neutralise and destroy members of illegal armed groups in the Novy Sulak settlement was conducted on Monday morning jointly with officers of the Federal Security Service (FSB). Two gunmen were blocked in a private house. Special task force fighters and police officers were dispatched to the settlement. Then armoured vehicles of the Russian Defence Ministry units stationed in the territory of Dagestan joined the operation. When offered to surrender the militants opened fire. It was found out later that the gunmen managed to escape to a neighbouring building. They were liquidated during an operation that took several hours. According to the republic’s Interior Ministry, during the debris clearing operation on Tuesday morning the bodies of the two bandits were found. One of them is the so-called commander of the Dagestan front Rappani Khalilov and another, according to police, was his deputy - Nabi Nabiyev, born in 1975 in Azerbaijan (Sakalaty). Operatives also found under the debris four Kalashnikov submachine guns, a Stechkin pistol, grenades and a large amount of cartridges. They also found a video camera, laptop and other things. One officer of the FSB department for Dagestan was lightly wounded in the fighting. The Prosecutor’s Office of Kizilyurt opened a criminal case under two articles of the Russian Criminal Code “attempt on the life of law enforcement officers” and “illegal turnover of weapons and ammunition.” Rappani Khalilov was on the federal wanted list for the organisation and staging of a number of high-profile terrorist acts, including the Kaspiisk terrorist attack that was committed on his instruction on May 9 during a festive procession.
