The Daily Mail reported:
ISIS has claimed responsibility for destroying a Russian passenger jet in response to Vladimir Putin’s decision to bomb Jihadi targets in Syria.
The aircraft, which had 200 adult passengers, 17 children and seven crew crashed less than 25 minutes after it took off from the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh.
The Irish-owned aircraft was leased by a Russian airline. It crashed in the Hassana area, south of Arish. Security forces discovered the crash wreckage in a remote mountainous area in a region containing many ISIS-affiliated terrorists.
Egyptian sources are claiming that wreckage has been spread over a three-mile area while an ISIS-affiliate has tried to claim responsibility for the disaster.
According to the statement: ‘The soldiers of the caliphate succeeded in bringing down a Russian plane in Sinai.’ However, Russian transport ministry sources dismissed the claim suggesting ‘they cannot be accurate’.
