WATCH: ISIS Claims Video Shows Them Shooting Down Russian Plane Flight 9268

The Islamic State is claiming a video and photos that have gone viral on Twitter shows them shooting down Metrojet Flight 7K9268 over Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula. You can watch that video above and see the photos below. The media people at ISIS have also began to churn out such propaganda like this:

isis, isil, is, islamic state, daesh, syria, iraq, terrorism

However, others are quick to refute that claim because the video is not clear and the photos show the wrong plane.

Originally it was reported that the plane experienced technical issues which may have contributed to the crash. The Independent reported:

Security sources have said that there was no indication of an attack and technical issues, which were reported by the pilot, were responsible for the accident.

However, new information released November 2 seems to suggest an exterior cause of the plane crash. However, this does not necessarily mean a missile launch as ISIS has claimed but could also mean a bomb was snuck onto the plane. The Telegraph reports:

While experts believe it was flying too high to be hit by an Isil missile, an Egyptian official in the civil aviation ministry told The Telegraph it was possible the plane was brought down by an explosive planted onboard.

There were 224 guests on the Metrojet Flight 7K9268 from Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, to St. Petersburg, Russia, including 17 children. The plane was split in two. The Egyptian civil aviation ministry said the plane was at an altitude of 31,000 feet when it disappeared off the radar right after it reportedly began descending at a rate of 6,000 feet per minute, according to the New York Times.
