ISIS Claims it Hid Russia Plane Crash Bomb in a Schweppes Can

ISIS has claimed it hid the bomb which allegedly caused the Russian airplane to crash in Egypt’s Sinai in a soft drink can.

In a photograph published in ISIS’ Dabiq magazine, a Schweppes pineapple flavored soft drink can and what appears to be a detonator and a switch are shown.

Dabiq also published photographs it claims belonged to some of the 224 Russian passengers killed in the airplane crash. However, it remains unclear how such passports were obtained given the military had control of the crash site. Egyptian Streets could not verify the authenticity of the photographs.

In the magazine article, ISIS said that the Russian plane was not its first choice.

“After having discovered a way to compromise 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,” said the magazine, stating that the target was changed after Russia commenced airstrikes against ISIS.

The magazine article also praised the Paris attacks, which left 129 people dead. Dabiq also revealed that ISIS has executed two men, one Chinese and one Norwegian.

ISIS’ claim that it brought down the Russian passenger plane with a bomb comes after Russian officials said traces of foreign explosives were found in the wreckage. Egypt, meanwhile, says its investigations are not complete.
