ISIS terrorists planned to commit a bomb attack in Russia. Russian Special Forces located the bomb in time and damages and possible human victims were prevented.
The bomb was hidden in the village of Kantyshevo. According to reports, the terrorists responsible for planting this 3.5-tonne bomb were killed. They were identified as Aslan Byutukaev and Beslan Mahauri.
Both terrorists became members of ISIS in summer 2015. Their movement had been monitored ever since. Location of one of the terrorists was revealed by one of his wives. The wife was jealous of her husband’s relationship with another woman. She was unaware that she was being followed. She wanted to confront her husband over the issue and actually led the Russian Special Forces to discover the bomb.
The bombs were put in plastic casks and buried along the road. The Russian special services eliminated the threat by detonating the bombs in a controlled manner.
