Islamic State called on its group members to carry out jihad in Russia in a nine-minute YouTube video on Sunday, according to Reuters.
"Listen Putin, we will come to Russia and will kill you at your homes ... Oh Brothers, carry out jihad and kill and fight them," a masked man driving a car in the desert yelled while wagging his finger in the last couple of minutes of the video.
The video with subtitles showed footage of armed men attacking armored vehicles and tents and collecting arms in the desert. "Breaking into a barrack of the Rejectionist military on the international road south Akashat," read one subtitle.
It was not immediately possible to independently verify the video but the link to the footage was published on a Telegram messaging account used by the militant group.
Muslim minorities make up approximately 14% of Russia's population, and Russia has experienced Islamic terrorism several times before, like for example the Beslan school siege and the Moscow theater hostage crisis.
