In the Russian occupied Oil & Gas rich lands of Dagestan, Jihad has returned to the restive district of Botlikh. This, comes shortly after 1 of the biggest DDOS attacks in history of the Internet from Russia against an anti-occupation News Agency which largely went unreported in the mainstream media.

At least five puppet policemen have been killed by the Mujahideen of the Caucasus Emirate in an ambush in Dagestan on Thursday, and another one of them has been wounded, Russian media report.
The Mujahideen attacked the enemy police patrol from ambush in the Botlikhsky district, near the village of Chanko. The Mujahideen opened fire from a forest at a police car as the police thugs inside checked information about Mujahideen near the village.
According to local witnesses, the frightened policemen opened random fire at civilians and probably killed or wounded some of them.
After the ambush, the Mujahideen returned to their base without losses.We would like to mention in conclusion that for the first time since 1999 there was such a major military clash in the Botlikh district.
On the contrary, Russian media report (see Interfax), that they also killed 2 militants. The Mujahideen of the caucasus publish their alleged victories and loses in a monthly rotation which often shows disappointing casualty figures for both the Mujahideen and the Russians and their occupiers.
Seemingly there are 3 possibilities:
1. The Mujahideen lied about casualties, despite often being grimly forth-coming about their casualties.
2. The Russian's felt the need to lie to make the ambush seem not successful.
or, 3. The scared policemen did open fire at civillians in retaliation as a collective punishment and the deceased have been conveniently identified as militants (Russian occupiers often kill civillians and the abducted, plant weapons on their corpses and claim they they were militants.
People believe they do this to keep the population scared, earn promotion opportunities, loot corpses and cars and keep themselves safe by discouraging support and participation of the insurgency.
Russia has a shameful record of human rights abuses, especially in the occupied oil & gas rich lands of the caucasus.
To quote Human Rights Watch,
Human rights defenders are vulnerable to harassment and violent attack, and those working in the North Caucasus are especially at risk.
In Chechnya the 2009 murders of three activists—Natalya Estemirova, Zarema Saidulaeva, and Alik Dzhabrailov—remain unpunished. Impunity for these murders has had a chilling effect on Chechen activists. In at least two cases in 2011, activists were subjected to severe harassment by officials, but made no official complaints for fear of retribution."
