Russian riot police storm jail and kill six ‘ISIS terrorists’ who took two prison officers hostage then demanded guns and a getaway car

  • Six suspected ISIS terrorists took two prison guards hostage
  • They were held in a prison in Rostov-on-Don
  • Police said they were ‘liquidating’ ISIS members

Russian authorities said today they have ended a siege started by suspected ISIS members in a prison.

Six ISIS prisoners escaped today from a cell in Detention Center 1 in Rostov-on-Don and kidnapped two prison guards and took them hostage at knifepoint in the city, which is close to the border with occupied Ukraine.

The six prisoners – said to be accused of terrorism or already convicted – demanded a getaway car and also tried to gain access to the prison’s weapons store.

But police said they had managed to “liquidate” the terrorists, saying in a statement: “During a special operation… the criminals were liquidated and the hostage employees were released and were not injured.”

A police source told state news agency TASS that IS members facing court on terrorism charges were among the hostage takers.

They are said to have barricaded themselves in the prison courtyard, armed with a pocket knife, a baton and an axe, the source said.

‘Islamic State’s mujahideen have taken over the Central [detention jail]captured the infidels.’

A Russian lieutenant colonel named Alexander B was seen handcuffed with an injured arm.

He is scolded: ‘Alexander, do you have something to say? Say a few words. Your emotions, your feelings… People are serious, hear them.’

A younger inmate is also seen with a knife-wielding ‘terrorist’.

In another message, the kidnappers say: “By the grace of Allah, we have set conditions for them to give us a car.

‘We ask Allah that we will not be captured alive by them.’

In another video, the ISIS captors said: ‘This group was prepared by Allah Almighty Himself through His signs.

‘It didn’t all happen spontaneously. It wasn’t all done in vain. We have given these infidels the condition that they give us a car and we leave.

‘We’ll see what happens next. We ask Allah that we may not be captured alive by them, so that Allah may accept us.’

Five of the six ISIS groups were named MS Saipudinov, AM Tsichev, DV Kamneev, TM Gireev and SA Akiev.

Gireev, Chichev and Akiev were reportedly convicted in December 2023 for participating in a planned ISIS attack on the Supreme Court in the Karachay-Cherkessia region of southern Russia.

They were sentenced to 18 years in prison.

The identity of the sixth intruder has not yet been determined. The other three were in custody on terrorism charges, it is understood.

Early this morning, Gireev, Akiev and Tsichev smashed the bars of their cells in the pre-trial detention center and entered the prison guard post.

It is Vladimir Putin’s second ISIS nightmare in three months.

On March 22, a terrorist attack was carried out by the Islamic State – Khorasan Province on the Crocus City Hall music venue in Krasnogorsk, Moscow region.

A total of 145 people were killed in a firefight.
