The Sinai branch post an audio message on terror-related social media accounts insisting ISIS brought down the Russian plane in Egypt. The message is believed to carry the voice of Wilayat Sinai’s Abu Osama al-Masri, who has made recordings for the group in the past. In it, Masri claims the group will reveal ‘soon’ how they downed the plane, and points out the fact the crash occurred a year after the group first pledged its allegiance to Isis leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Find your black boxes and analyze them, give us the results of your investigation and the depth of your expertise and prove we didn’t do it or how it was downed… Die with your rage. We are the ones with God’s blessing who brought it down. And God willing, one day we will reveal how, at the time we desire.
