This is the moment Russian anti-terror troops storm the house of a suspected IS terrorist – blowing the door off with explosives before firing bullets inside.
The incident after the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation (FSB) received information that the Islamic State (IS) terrorist was living in the village of Voznesenskoye in the Republic of Ingushetia in the North Caucasus region of Russia and was planning to carry out an attack.
The FSB wrote in a statement: “At night during the operational-search measures in the Republic of Ingushetia, the FSB of Russia received information about the presence of an armed bandit planning to carry out a terrorist attack in a private house located in Voznesenskoye.”

In the video, FSB officers can be seen blowing the door off the rural house and they can then be heard firing bullets inside.
Local media report FSB officers offered the 38-year-old suspect, who has not been named, to surrender but he refused so a shootout ensued.
The suspect was killed in the operation and reports state he was found with a machine gun, a pair of grenades and a homemade bomb with a capacity of the equivalent of five kilogrammes of TNT.
According to the National Anti-Terrorism Committee, the killed man recruited residents in Ingushetia to create a terrorist cell.
