Seven ISIS members have been detained in Ekaterinburg, a city in the Urals Region. The Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) allege that they were preparing to conduct terrorist attacks in Moscow and St. Petersburg. It has been revealed that the head of the cell arrived in Russia from Turkey.
The gunmen were planning to carry out “high-profile terrorist attacks using self-made explosive devices,” the FSB said, as reported by Russian media.
It is then claimed that after conducting the attacks they were going to escape to ISIS occupied areas of Syria.

The authorities also found IED components, electric detonators, hand grenades, handguns and extremist reading matter.

The extremists in the terror cell are citizens of Russia and some Central Asian countries.
