Daesh’s attack in Moscow exposes a Callous trend of Proxy war: Putin Vows to retaliate

Daesh gunmen killed at least 143 Russians in an attack on a concert mall in Moscow and injured dozens of others. The callous attack exposed a new and horrible trend in Proxy war that targeted the civilians blood-shed. Everyone in the world knows that Daesh militants are illegitimate mercenaries pursuing the interests of the United States and Israel. They have never targeted Americans or Israelis, upholding the popular proverb “Dog never bites on his tail”.

Hence, Daesh’s brutal killings of civilian Russians will influence Russia and its allies, including Iran, to reciprocate the attack in a bid to settle the score. And soon we will hear about the backlash of the attack either in the United States or Israel undoubtedly through the Proxies of Russia and its allies.

The terrorist attack by Daesh will give a justification to Russian President Vladimir Putin to use secret military tactics most probably through their mercenaries to revenge the brutal killings of Russians, perhaps in a more callous way.

Russia is neither Iran nor Afghanistan nor Pakistan that are not in a position to give befitting response to the founders and financiers of Daesh. These three bordering countries are grappling with multiple problems with terrorism on top of the list.

Nonetheless, Putin knows the art and manners to penalize the foes of Russia, and being a senior analyst with over three decades exposure of observing wars and conflicts, Proxy wars, and conflicts, I believe that Putin will not spare the perpetrators of Moscow concert killers (Daesh militants) and their founding-fathers.

Entry of Daesh into Russia-Ukraine is set to open a new wave of more horrible bloodshed through Proxies among the key stakeholders of two ongoing wars _ the Russia-Ukraine war and the Hamas-Israel war in the Gaza Strip.

Importantly, In a tragic incident, gunmen opened fire at concertgoers at Crocus City Hall on the outskirts of Moscow, Russia, resulting in more than 140 fatalities and over 145 injuries. The attack occurred just before the Soviet-era rock group “Picnic” was scheduled to perform to a full house at the 6,200-seat venue. Reports indicate that at least 60 of the injured individuals are in critical condition.

The terrorist attack, claimed by the militant group Daesh, marks the deadliest act of terror in Russia since the 2004 Beslan school siege, where militants had held over 1,000 people hostage.

Putin vows to retaliate

Russian President Vladimir Putin responded vehemently to the heinous attack on a concert hall in Moscow, which resulted in the loss of over 100 innocent lives.

In a televised address, Putin condemned the act as a “barbaric terrorist act” and vowed severe repercussions for all involved.

Expressing his outrage, Putin assured the nation that all four perpetrators responsible for the attack had been apprehended before they could escape across the border into Ukraine.

He emphasized the gravity of the situation, highlighting the tragic loss of innocent lives and the brutality of the assailants.

Putin’s address marked his first public remarks since the attack, underscoring the severity of the situation. He reiterated that the detained individuals were en route to Ukraine and warned of the consequences they would face for their heinous actions.

Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) disclosed that the attackers had been in communication with individuals in Ukraine as they attempted to flee the country, shedding light on the complexity of the situation and potential links to external actors.

The attack, which claimed the lives of at least 115 individuals at the Crocus City Hall in the outskirts of Moscow, was characterized by armed gunmen and subsequent arson. 

Witnesses described chaotic scenes of gunfire and stampedes as panic ensued among the concert attendees. Russian President Vladimir Putin has been briefed on the situation by security officials, including Alexander Bortnikov, the head of the Federal Security Service (FSB).

Russia attack: More than 60 dead after Daesh gunmen storm Moscow concert

Russian investigators have released images of weapons and ammunition found at the scene, including a Kalashnikov automatic weapon and vests with spare magazines.

In a statement, Daesh claimed responsibility for the attack, stating that their fighters targeted the outskirts of Moscow, causing casualties before retreating safely to their bases. However, Moscow has not yet officially attributed responsibility for the incident.

The United States has confirmed Daesh’s claim of responsibility for the shooting, indicating that they had previously warned Russia of the possibility of such an attack. The assault occurred despite recent warnings from the US embassy in Russia about potential extremist threats in Moscow.

The attack on Crocus City Hall has elicited shock and condolences from the international community, including the United Nations Security Council, which condemned the act as a “heinous and cowardly terrorist attack.”
