Georgian police killed Akhmed Chatayev, Chechen leader of a Daesh terrorist cell in Istanbul, which carried out a triple suicide bombing in Istanbul's Atatürk Airport in 2016. This was reported by Daily Sabah agency.

Georgian police carried out a 17-hour long counterterror operation targeting Daesh in Tblisi late Wednesday, killing three terrorists of Chechen origin.

Clashes took place between the police and terrorists after police surrounded the apartment they were living in. Chatayev is thought to be one of the suspects linked to the deadly bombing, which killed 45 people last year. He reportedly found accommodation for the bombers.

The terrorist allegedly illegally crossed the border to Georgia and had been living in a flat registered under another Chechen national named Aslanpek Jebrailov.

Turkey has been targeted by a wave of deadly Daesh attacks since 2015 and more than 5,000 Daesh suspects have been deported in recent years, along with 3,290 foreign terrorists from 95 countries, amid Turkish attempts to dismantle terrorist cells and safe houses providing logistical assistance to the terrorist group in Syria and Iraq and to thwart attacks being plotted inside the country.
