(IraqiNews.com) The video which follows this article was published on social media by members of the terrorist organization, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, includes threats to attack Russian President Vladimir Putin and liberate Chechnya and the Caucus Region with Russian fighter jets and missiles ISIS had seized from Tabaqa Airport in Raqqa, Syria as reported by IraqiNews.com on 27 August.
Vladimir Putin, an ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, is a principal supplier of weapons and equipment for Syrian government forces.
A member of ISIS directs his words to Putin, “these Russian planes which you had sent to Bashar, God willing, will be sent back to your own country; we will liberate Chechnya, and the Caucasus, God willing,” adding that “your throne is threatened by us.”
The ISIS video also threatened to use air strikes to destroy the home of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. An ISIS narrator says to Assad that “you will not enjoy sleeping.”
It is known that Putin dealt harshly with the Muslims of Chechnya who aspired to gain full independence from Russia during the Russian-Chechen wars of 1994 and 1999.
