– CAUCASIAN MILITANT ALIASKHAB KEBEKOV KILLED
Russian authorities and militant websites said, on 04/20/2015, , the leader of the Caucasus Emirate insurgent group, has been killed in Dagestan.
The Russian National Antiterrorism Committee (NAK) said that Aliaskhab Kebekov was one of three militants found dead after an armed confrontation between security forces and gunmen on the outskirts of Buinaksk, a city southwest of Dagestan’s capital, Makhachkala.
Two websites associated with Islamic militants in Russia’s North Caucasus — kavkazcenter.com and jamaatshariat.com — confirmed that Aliaskhab Kebekov and two other men “became martyrs” in the town of Gerei-Avlak.
Aliaskhab Kebekov, 43, also known as Amir (Commander) Ali Abu-Muhammad, was a Dagestani theologian who was chosen last year to succeed Doku Umarov as leader of the Caucasus Emirate, the main insurgent group in Russia’s mostly Muslim North Caucasus.
The USA State Department designated Aliaskhab Kebekov as a terrorist just recently, in March 2015, subjecting him to sanctions.
Canada, Russia, the United Kingdom, the United Nations, the United States, and the United Arab Emirates have designated the Caucasus Emirate as a terrorist organization.
