Russian security forces surrounded a house in the highly Islamic North Caucasus province of Ingushetia in which Muslim jihadists were hiding, and when the Muslims opened fire, the Russians fired back and managed to kill off seven jihadists, including a leading terrorist leader who was accused of murdering “a regional security chief last year and the deaths of several other Russian security and police officers.”
Russia has been battling insurgents for years in the North Caucasus area which is riddled with jihadists who want to make the region into an Islamic state.
Here is a video of Russian soldiers fighting Chechens in 1996:
Russia’s Anti-Terrorism Committee said that Artur Gatagadzhev, one of the jihadists killed, was responsible for the attack.
After the battle, the jihadists’ hideout home was consumed by fire, and the Russians say that this was possibly the result of an explosion.
On Friday, Russian forces also managed to kill four other jihadists in a shootout in Karbadino-Balkaria, also in the North Caucasus.
God bless Russia for fighting Islam for so many centuries. Russia is a Christian country, and it will soon take down the crescent idols of Islam.
