Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) has exposed a cell of the Islamic State terror group (outlawed in Russia), whose members were planning to carry out terrorist attacks in the Rostov region upon orders from Syrian emissaries.

Axar.az reports citing the FSB press service.

According to the FSB, the operation to detain the cell’s members also involved police officers. Firearms, a homemade explosive device and munitions were seized from the three detained members of the IS cell, as well as means of communication and electronic data storage devices containing terrorist propaganda materials. "During the operation, the cell’s leader put up armed resistance, detonated an identified improvised explosive device and suffered fatal wounds," the FSB added.

An Ak-74 rifle, hand grenades and instructions for making explosive devices were also found.
