Geidar Djemal: Magomed Suleimanov is new leader of "Imarat Kavkaz"
Magomed Suleimanov (Abu Usman of Gimry), a Sharia militants' judge and the leader of the armed underground in Dagestan, has been appointed the new leader of the "Imarat Kavkaz" recognized in Russia as a terrorist organization. This was reported by Geidar Djemal, the Chairman of the Islamic Committee of Russia. The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on April 19-20, five persons were killed during the special operation carried out on the outskirts of the Dagestani city of Buynaksk. According to the National Antiterrorist Committee (NAC), the number of the killed militants included Aliaskhab Kebekov, the leader of organization "Imarat Kavkaz" recognized in Russia as terrorist. The militants from Dagestan confirmed the information on their websites. Geidar Djemal, the Chairman of the Islamic Committee of Russia, has called the appointment of Magomed Suleimanov the leader of the "Imarat Kavkaz" an "acute step". "As far as I know, Magomed Suleimanov (Abu Usman of Gimry) has become the new leader of the 'Imarat Kavkaz'. I believe the prospects of the 'Imarat Kavkaz' as an independent organization are still not bright, since the influence of the 'Islamic State' (also recognized a terrorist organization) is growing. They will merge," Geidar Djemal said in his interview to the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent.
