In the latest edition of its magazine Dabiq, ISIS claimed that they were able to down a Russian passenger plane with an improvised explosive device disguised as a can of soda.
The claim came as part of an information release billed as an “exclusive” in the terrorist magazine. A photo shows a can of Gold Schweppes Pineapple drink, wires and something that looks like a detonator.
“It was a rash decision of arrogance from Russia,” the article that went along with the photo release says according to the New York Times. “And so after having discovered a way to compromise the security at the Sharm el Sheikh International Airport and resolving to bring down a plane belonging to a nation in the American-led Western coalition against the Islamic State, the target was changed to a Russian plane. A bomb was smuggled onto the airplane, leading to the deaths of 219 Russians and 5 other crusaders only a month after Russia’s thoughtless decision.”
A French journalist Tweeted out a copy of the cover of the magazine that shows emergency responders in Paris and the words, “Just Terror” splashed across the front.
