Russia’s domestic security apparatus reportedly thwarts two plots hatched by the Daesh Takfiri terror group to attack targets in Moscow.

The plots foiled by Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) would see the group’s terrorists attack military intelligence officers and railway passengers in the capital, Russian news agency ITAR-TASS reported on Tuesday, citing Kommersant daily.

The paper said a Daesh leader, which it named as Todzhiddin Nazarov, “who had engineered terrorist attacks in Sweden and Tajikistan and personally oversaw them,” had planned the attacks.

“Nazarov ordered his accomplices to blow up military servicemen deployed to the GRU (the foreign military agency of the Russian Armed Forces’ General Staff)’s headquarters on Khoroshevskoye Highway and attack railway passengers,” it wrote.

“However, FSB officers managed to zero in on and detain the soon-to-be attackers," the daily added.

Russia began bombing targets belonging to Daesh and other terrorist groups in Syria at Damascus’ request in September 2015, a year after the outfit began its campaign of bloodshed and destruction in the Arab country and neighboring Iraq.

Damascus, backed by Russia and Iran, has managed to liberate almost all areas of the country from Daesh.
