"Movement in the city is safe" - Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili
Movement is unrestricted throughout the city, and there are no grounds for security concerns at all, - Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili said when he visited the wounded members of the special operations squad at the Referral Hospital.

Giorgi Kvirikashvili, together with Interior Minister Giorgi Gakharia and Head of State Security Service Vakhtang Gomelauri visited the Referral Hospital to get information about the condition of the members of the special operations squad wounded during yesterday's special operation.

Deputy Health Minister
Zaza Sopromadze updated the Prime Minister of the conditions of the wounded. Giorgi Kvirikashvili thanked the special operations members for their courage.

As a reminder, 4 law enforcers were wounded and 1 was killed in yesterday’s special operation. As reported, the three suspects of Chechen origin, hiding in the apartment, were ISIS fighters.

“As you know, the special operation is completed. Unfortunately, we have one casualty-a special operations member has been killed. I avail myself of this opportunity to offer my sincere sympathies to the family of this serviceman, a true hero. Some are in treatment; as you know, three have been wounded, and I would like to wish them a speedy recovery.

I would like to thank everyone, the staff of the State Security Service and the Interior Ministry's Special Task Force, for their heroism in neutralizing the threat. In addition, certain politicians and experts have expressed different views unjustifiable under the circumstances.

I would like to urge everyone to abstain from such speculations. There must be a time when we all stand together, and I certainly hope that they will make a note.

Questions can be raised, of course, and there are institutional formats to answer such questions, but one cannot publicly discuss the details of an operation of this type. In addition, movement is unrestricted throughout the city, and there are no grounds for security concerns at all”, said the PM.
