Russia: In Dagestan Military Killed Civilians by “Mistake”

Posted by Info on 11/07/2011

In Kizlyar District of Dagestan the military shelled the vehicles of local residents, since they considered them militants. The shelling was caused by the military’s fear of the possible attack of the militants. “They were afraid that the vehicles contained militants and defended themselves as they could.”

According to the journalist Gadjimurad Kamalov, the temporary military encampment, and not the motor convoy, was indeed shelled from the forest direction at about 9:13 p.m.
“In about 23 minutes the military opened fire on bypassing cars – the “Gazel” and the “VAZ-2199”. In another 20 minutes they shelled one more “Gazel”.”.

“One of the victims was Abdulnasyr Pakhrutdinovich Abdullaev, born in 1966, a melon field keeper. His two nephews were together with him in the car. Both boys were wounded.”
