NEW YORK DAILY NEWS – The Isis militant group has released the new edition of its propaganda magazine, in which it claims to reveal how it brought down the Russian jet over Sinai.

The edition of the “Dabiq” magazine, published in English by an Isis media arm, claims the plane was bombed using an improvised explosive device hidden inside a can of Schweppes Gold pineapple juice.

Entitled “Just Terror”, the cover displayed an image of one of the victims of the Paris attacks being treated by the emergency services.

And in its forward, it claimed to reveal how militants “discovered a way to compromise the security at Sharkm el-Sheikh airport” to bring down the Metrojet airliner on 31 October.

In the magazine, whose claims cannot be independently verified, the militant group published an image tagged “Exclusive” apparently showing an IED and the can it was hidden in prior to the bombing.
