A message was sent to a Telegram channel, allegedly linked to the attack. Reports indicated the perpetrator supported ISIS.

Later reports claimed that ISIS had taken responsibility at night.

The bulletin claims the 23-year-old local indentified as the assailant went by the kunya of Abdullah ash-Shishani.”

ISIS attempted an attack in August 2018 and 2016. Also Chechnya took back the children of ISIS members who were found in Syria. Some women were “welcomed” back. See February 2019 article.
