WATCH: ISIS claims this footage shows them shooting down Russian plane over Sinai

The video is still unverified, but the Islamic State terror group has been promising a grand response to being targeted by Russia in Syria.

The following video was released by ISIS in the Sinai peninsula. It purports to show Russian flight A321 being shot down by terrorists over Sinai Saturday morning.

Both Russia and Egypt have issued denials that the plane was shot down, but the Islamic State has been promising vengeance for Russian airstrikes against the group in Syria.

Security analysts say that if the plane was indeed shot down by ISIS, there will be a spike in pressure on airlines to equip their planes with the Israeli counter-missile system currently installed on ELAL flights.
