- If ISIS is behind this, they certainly have not planed too well for the consequences. This is a national trauma for Russia. They are going to respond in a brutal way, says terror expert Magnus Ranstorp, adding:
- IS has awakened the Russian bear.
US intelligence informed Wednesday that a bomb on board was probably the cause of the Russian passenger plane crashing in the Sinai Peninsula, and it is likely that the Islamic state (IS) was behind it.
All the 224 people on board, most of them Russian tourists, were killed when the plane from the Russian company Metrojet crashed in the Sinai Peninsula last Saturday. The plane was on its way from Sharm el-Sheik to St. Petersburg.
- The plane could not just break up into pieces in the air, said a source in the Russian aviation agency.
Data from the black boxes on board the plane that crashed in the Sinai Peninsula, suggesting that it was subjected to an attack, says a "sources close to the investigation" to AFP, today.
The source in Paris informs AFP that one of the two black boxes shows that "everything was normal during the flight, absolutely normal, and then suddenly there was nothing there."
This shows that the aircraft was subjected to a "violent and sudden" incident, the source said.
Russian experts are working together with Egyptian experts to analyze the two black boxes, which is the term often applied to those actually orange boxes containing tachograph and cockpit voice.
ISIS has already claimed responsibility for the attack, and if Russia concludes that it is so, the Russian bear will attack with full force, supported by every Russian.
