A devastating wave of terror has struck Russia’s Dagestan region, leaving a trail of death and destruction in its wake.

On June 24, 2024, unknown attackers launched a series of coordinated assaults on a synagogue, two orthodox churches, and a traffic police station, resulting in the loss of multiple lives and injuries to many others.

The attacks began with a raid on the traffic police station in the regional capital, Makhachkala, where at least seven police officers were killed and six others injured.

The assailants then targeted an Orthodox church in Derbent, brutally killing the local priest and leaving a scene of devastation.

In a chilling incident, the attackers also set fire to the synagogue in Derbent, using firebombs to inflict significant damage on the building.

Fortunately, a police unit and private security guards courageously fought off the attackers, giving their lives to shield the Jewish community.

The Russian Jewish Congress has condemned the attack, extending condolences to all those affected by the tragedy.

The same perpetrators are alleged to have targeted another synagogue in Makhachkala, although details of the attack remain scarce.

The Orthodox church in Makhachkala was also attacked, resulting in the tragic killing of its priest.

Patriarch Kirill of the Russian Orthodox Church has strongly condemned the violence, warning that the perpetrators’ intent is to spark sectarian hatred.

He emphasized the need for unity and peace, urging efforts to prevent the “diabolical” goal of the attackers from being achieved.

The attacks have sparked widespread alarm and concern, prompting authorities to race against time to apprehend the culprits and restore order in the region.

The motivations behind the attacks are still unknown, but they have stoked fears of escalating religious tensions and extremism in the region.

Dagestani law enforcement has reported that 16 individuals, including 13 police officers, were rushed to the primary regional hospital in Makhachkala, highlighting the grave nature and severity of the attacks.

As the investigation into the attacks continues, authorities are working to restore peace and stability in the region.
