Islamic State’s Caucasus ‘province’ claims first official attack on Russian forces

“The Islamic State’s so-called ‘province’ in the Caucasus region has claimed responsibility for its first official attack since its was established earlier this year.

In a statement released online (seen above), and translated by the SITE Intelligence Group, the group says ‘the soldiers of the Caliphate were able to mount an attack on barracks of the Russian army in southern Dagestan, in Magharamakint village.’ The raid allegedly ‘led to the killing and wounding of a number of them.’ Afterwards, ‘the soldiers of the Caliphate returned to their positions safely and with spoils, and unto Allah is all praise and gratitude,’ SITE’s translation reads.”
