Islamic group Djund Al-Khalifat (Soldiers of Khalifat) claimed responsibility for explosions in Atyrau on October 31, Kazakhstan Today reports citing Long War Journal.
Islamists placed a message claiming responsibility for the terrorist attack on jihadist forums. According to representatives of the group, the explosion was intentionally made by a suicide bomber and the terrorist attack “was just a warning for the government”.
“We deny that the last attack was made by a suicide bomber. It looks like the bomb exploded accidentally causing martyr death of the carrier. We ask Allah to accept him as a martyr. Both of these blasts were just warnings for the government and we intentionally did not aim for deaths and injuries, as we don't want to harm a lot of people. However, if we do not see that our demands are heard, we swear by Allah, who set the heavens without columns, that the next attacks will cause rivers of blood,” the message of Soldiers of Khalifat states.
Earlier Tengrinews.kz English reported that two explosions happened in Atyrau in the morning of October 31. The first blast was in the garbage can at Kulmanov street. Later an unknown man blew himself up in Saryarka region. The terrorists apprehension operation was held in Atyrau at night of November 1. The details of the operations are unknown yet.
October 26 Djund Al-Khalifat (Soldiers of Khalifat) threatened Kazakhstan with violence in case the authorities do not cancel the Law on Religion.
The message where islamists claim responsibility for the blasts was placed at the website of SITE Intelligence Group that was the first to publish the threats of the Soldiers of Khalifat.
