Special and counterterrorist operations
At 6:00 a.m. Moscow time of May 7, in the southern part of the Soviet District of Makhachkala, a legal regime of counterterrorist operation (CTO) was introduced in the territory bounded by Gamidov, Timiryazev and Sulak Streets and the October Revolution Channel. During the special operation, power agents blocked a multi-storey residential building in Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya Street, where members of armed underground were hiding in one of the apartments. Residents were evacuated. The power agents started negotiations with the blocked members of the armed underground and offered them to lay down their arms. As a result of the negotiations, Patimat Begova, a wife of one of the men hiding in the apartment, left the building. The further negotiations did not succeed, and the men, who remained in the house, opened fire. In the course of the subsequent assault of the building, three suspected members of the armed underground were killed. At 11:00 p.m. Moscow time of the same day, the CTO regime was cancelled. The men killed in the special operation have been preliminary identified as Zaur Begov, Abumuslim Gasanov, and Mirzabek Idrisov.
On May 8, after the Friday prayer, 10-15 mosque-goers of the mosque located on the Makhachkala highway in the city of Buynaksk were brought to the GOVD (City Interior Division). All the detainees were brought to the GOVD, where they were fingerprinted and photographed for registration, and their IDs were checked. By the evening, all the detainees were released.
