The information about the IS* involvement in the above attack appeared in the new issue of the weekly newspaper "Naba", the "Directorate 4" Telegram channel, which is tracing militants' activities, reported on February 1.

The weekly treats the dead resident of Ingushetia as an IS* militant, and the area, where the attack took place, – as "the Stavropol Territory, a part of Chechnya," the above Telegram channel reports, posting a screenshot of the paper article in the Arabic language. The article, according to the screenshot, is illustrated with a photo of Mansur Beltoev.

"Apart from geographical errors, the authors of the article added colours to the attack itself – according to their version, the post was shelled from a machine gun, equipment was burned down, and several law enforcers were killed," the report said.
