The Aktobe attackers received instructions from Syria, according to the ongoing investigation.

ASTANA (Sputnik) — Preliminary data shows that the perpetrators behind the recent attack in the Kazakh city of Aktobe received instructions from Syria, Kazakhstan's Minister of Internal Affairs Kalmukhanbet Kassymov said Tuesday.

"Seemingly from Syria, I think the investigation will give decisive proof," Kassymov told reporters.

On June 5, unidentified armed assailants attacked two gun shops and a military unit in Aktobe. As a result of the attack, at least seven people were killed, including three servicemen, and 38 injured. In response, the country's authorities announced an anti-terrorist operation.
