Russian Apartment Bombings of 99′

Russian Apartment Bombings of 99′

  • For the mastermind Al-Khattab, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin had a special KGB trick up his sleeve…

A series of terrorist attacks that blew up four apartment blocks in four Russian cities in September 1999, killing 293 and injuring more than 1000 people and spreading a wave of fear across the country.

The investigation concluded that all the bombings were ordered by Islamist warlords Ibn Al-Khattab and Abu Omar al-Saif. Both men were Saudis, fighting in Chechnya against Russia, allegedly with close ties to al-Qaeda.

Imagine waking up to a terror like this. The apartment building on the picture is from Moscow. Russian President at the time, Boris Yeltsin, ordered the search of astonishing 30,000 residential buildings in Moscow for explosives.

For Al-Khattab (on the picture below), Putin had a special KGB trick up his sleeve.

Islamic terrorist Ibn Al-Khattab
Islamic terrorist Ibn Al-Khattab. Terror acts like the Russian Apartment Bombing have been the catalyst to many Russian skinheads such as Tesak that Bizarrepedia has covered before.

Namely, FSB (KGB’s successor) knew that Al-Khattab received letters from his mother in Saudi Arabia and devised a plan using the information to kill the warlord. They recruited and turned his courier to work for them so he would deliver a poisoned letter “from the mother”(!) to their target.

The poison of choice was a fast-acting nerve agent, possibly sarin or a derivative.

Al-Khattab died. And rightly so.
