ISIS Says New Photo Is IED

The Islamic State published a new edition of its propaganda magazine Wednesday, calling last week's attacks in Paris and the bombing of a Russian passenger jet earlier this month "revenge" for French and Russian military actions in Iraq and Syria.

The Paris attacks — in which several gunmen and suicide bombers killed more than 120 people Friday — were supposedly carried out in response to French airstrikes in Iraq that began in September 2014. Those air strikes, USA Today reported at the time, were among the first confirmed instances of military support by a foreign country to the United States' efforts against ISIS.

Warning that "the nightmare in France has only begun," the magazine goes onto call French President Hollande a "coward."

It also claims responsibility for the bombing of Metrojet Flight 9268, a Russian passenger flight, on Oct. 31.

That attack, the magazine says, was retaliation for Russia's airstrikes in Syria this September, which targeted "eight ISIS positions, including arms, transportation, communications and control positions," CNN reported at the time.

"It was a rash decision of arrogance from Russia," said the forward in Dabiq, the ISIS magazine.

A pair of photos from an ISIS propaganda magazine show the bomb, right, used to bring down a Russian passenger jet on Oct. 31, 2015.

The goes onto describe how ISIS fighters "discovered a way to compromise the security" at Egypt's Sharm el-Sheikh International Airport in order to smuggle a bomb onto Metrojet Flight 9268 that later killed 219 Russians, four Ukrainians and one Belarusian, mostly tourists.

"This was to show the Russians and whoever allies with them that they will have no safety in the lands and airspace of the Muslims," the magazine said.
