ISIS claims female Russian spy infiltrated terror network
An article titled “Elvira Karaeva — Agent of the Russian Special Services” in Istok, the Islamic State’s Russian- language online magazine, focuses on the woman whom ISIS in the Caucasus accused of being an agent of the Russian intelligence services.
Karaeva worked as a spy for four years, during which she secretly passed along information on the jihadi groups in the Caucasus, including locations of ISIS fighters, Fox News reported.
The article notes that although Karaeva was questioned by ISIS’ “investigative authorities,” she was able to convince them of her innocence. But when the terror network used a “cunning investigative maneuver,” the woman confessed and was later executed by an ISIS member.
“Elvira the apostate gave information to the Russian special services about our brothers and sisters waging jihad...in the Caucasus Province,” the article was quoted as saying.
