The raid allegedly "led to the killing and wounding of a number of them." Afterward, "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.The Islamic State announced its Caucasus branch in June, but the jihadists had not claimed responsibility for any attacks since then.More details at Business Insider.Stay tuned because Russian President Vladimir Putin is sure to have an interesting response.[mwi-cat-listing cat="94" ppp="4" cols="4" desc="false" type="view" btn_color="black" ]
