Hizb ut-Tahrir has been "Neutralized" and Blamed for the two recent Bombing Attacks on Russian Military Bases
Russia claims it has neutralized two Islamic cells that were responsible for attacks on Russian military bases...
Sergei Aksyonov, the top official in Crimea, said that the FSB security service had broken down a “six-person terrorist cell of a banned Islamist group” a day after explosions hit a military base and a week after an airfield was attacked as well.
"All of them are detained. The activities of the terrorists were coordinated, as one would expect, from the territory of the terrorist state of Ukraine.”
Sergei Aksyonov said.
Hizb ut-Tahrir is the group Sergei Aksyonov named as the suspected attackers. The group has been banned in Russia for some time now, however, there has been no confirmation that the detained individuals were linked with the explosions from yesterday or the one last week which destroyed nearly eight military planes and other pieces of Russian equipment. According to Sergei Aksyonov, Dzhankoi and the city of Yalta were the two areas in which the Islamic cells has been “neutralized.”
The FSB reported that the Islamic cell has been recruiting local Muslims and accused the group of carrying out terrorist activities. Ukraine has yet to claim responsibility for the bombing attacks but military analysts have pointed to the possibility of Ukrainian involvement using special forces that are operating behind the Russian enemy lines.
