ISIS Celebrates After 9 KILLED in Russia Attack

This is a developing story and Russian President Vladimir Putin is in the city where the blasts have occurred. He has stated that authorities are looking into all possible motivations, including terrorism.

Meanwhile ISIS supporters are already celebrating the two explosions that happened on St. Petersburg subways. 10 have been killed, though there are mixed reports on the exact number, and 20 people have been reported injured, according to Russian media reports.

We ask Allah to bless the operation by the lions of the Caliphate, we ask Allah to kill the Crusaders,” said an ISIS supporter from the terror group’s al-Minbar online forum. Others celebrated by saying that the Monday bombs made for “a metro to hell for the worshipers of the Cross” and claimed that the attacks — which are still under investigation by Russian authorities — were revenge for Russia’s backing of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who is fighting against ISIS and other rebel groups in a six-year-long civil war. Russian airstrikes and shelling in Syria have killed hundreds of people and reduced entire areas to rubble.

The attacks occurred in the center of Russia’s second largest city at the Sennaya Ploshchad and Technology Institute stations. It is reported one of the targeted areas involved a device filled with shrapnel. As of now, all metro stations in the city have been locked down following the blast.
