      Chechen command confirms death of Amir Abuzar

      In a short telephone interview with the "Kavkaz-Center" agency, a
      spokesman of the staff of the Argun sector of the ChRI Armed Forces
      confirmed the report about the death of the commander of the sector,
      Amir Abuzar (call name "Herat"). Amir Abuzar (26 years), a native of
      Argun, was martyred on 29 July in combat with the Russian occupiers in
      the town of Argun. Another mujahed died together with him. Furthermore,
      at least one other Chechen soldier fell into captivity of the Russian
      occupiers. The total losses of the Chechen subdivisions were two killed,
      one captive and several wounded soldiers.

      The spokesman of the staff of the Argun sector also confirmed that it
      was actually the Chechen subdivisions under the command of Amir Herat
      and Amir Hamas which entered the city in order to carry out a planned
      military operation against the local collaborators and the occupying
      formation. As a result of 48 hours of fighting, the Chechen mujahedeen
      killed at least 15 occupiers and wounded about 20 enemy soldiers,
      according to verified informations. Furthermore, eight collaborators
      were killed, among them two commanders of the puppet formations. Two
      APCs and two "Zhiguli 99-1" cars were burned. According to some reports,
      the chief of the local puppet police, Shamil Magomadov, was killed.
      According to other reports, he is in hospital in a fatal condition.

      The source also reported that the town of Argun continues to be blocked
      by the Russian occupation forces. People aren't allowed to leave and
      nobody is allowed into the town. Argun is subjected to a total punitive
      "cleansing", despite the fact that the occupation command is
      well-informed that the Chechen mujahedeen have left the town after the
      fulfillment of the assigned combat mission.
