In a new publication of its propaganda paper “Dabqi”, ISIS (or Daesh) has published a picture of the bomb that exploded in a Russian plane over Sinai on the 31st of October. All 224 passengers died in the crash.
ISIS claims that it had long figured out how to overcome security measures at Sharm el-Sheikh airport but only recently decided to actually carry out its plan to attack a passenger plane after Russia started its air campaign against the group.
The attack on the Russian pane follows a model that has been used by terrorists before. In 2006 British police arrested 24 suspects and charged them with plotting to blow up 10 airplanes on trans-Atlantic flights.
The 2006 plot led to the tight restrictions on liquids and creams in place today at airports around the world.
