Official magazine of DAESH terrorist group published on Wednesday a propaganda image of a bomb which allegedly was used to bring down the Russian airplane in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula last month, leaving all 224 passengers dead.
The group’s online propaganda magazine Dabiq revealed the photo which shows a can of Schweppes Gold soft drink and what appeared to be a detonator and switch on a blue background.
"The divided Crusaders of the East and West thought themselves safe in their jets as they cowardly bombarded the Muslims of the Caliphate," said Dabiq magazine, adding that "And so revenge was exacted upon those who felt safe in the cockpits."
According to the magazine, the group decided to down the plane following Russia’s “thoughtless decision", referring to the Russian air strikes which were carried out on Sept. 30 against DAESH positions in Syria.
The passenger jet brought down on October 31, killing the 224 people on board, shortly after it took off from the Egyptian Red Sea resort city of Sharm el-Sheikh.
Following the incident, the DAESH-linked group in the Sinai Peninsula claimed responsibility for the attack without providing any evidence.
Besides the bomb’s photo, the group also revealed a picture of passports which reportedly belonged to the Russians who were killed. However the pictures have not been verified yet by the Russian authorities.
On Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin offered a $50 million reward for information leading to finding those who were responsible for bringing down the plane.
"We will find them anywhere on the planet and punish them," Putin said at a somber Kremlin meeting.
