Terrorist attack in Surgut: ISIS published video message of supposed terrorist
In the video, a man named Masaud al-Surguti swears allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi on the background of the Islamic State's symbols.
The information agency Furat Media, controlled by the Islamic state (banned in Russia), published a posthumous video with the criminal, who staged the massacre in Surgut. The video shows a man named Masaud Al-Surguti in a balaclava against the background of the symbols of the ISIS and the ax. He swears loyalty to head of the ISIS Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and calls his 'brothers' to further crimes against the civilian population. This is reported by the SITE Intellgence Group, which monitors the activities of terrorists.
On the morning of August 19, a man in a balaclava and with the shahid belt attacked the inhabitants of Surgut, attacking them with knives and an ax. As a result of his actions, seven people were injured, four of whom are now in serious condition. The criminal himself was wounded by a policeman, and then died of blood loss. Arriving bomb technicians said that the shahid belt was fake.
As it turned out later, the attacker was 19-year-old Artur Hajiev, who worked as a security guard at the Perekrestok store. His colleagues spoke well of him, noting at the same time the extreme piety of Hajiev - several times a day he went to the office to perform prayer.
According to the portal Mash, Artur's father - Lametulah Hajiev - is serving a sentence in one of the colony of Adygea for killing his acquaintance Yuri with a knife.
