The cause of the recent crash of EgyptAir Flight 804 is unknown, but has widely been speculated to be the result of terrorism. While jihadist groups usually claim credit for atrocities within hours of their occurrence, they’ve been suspiciously silent on this.
So does that mean terror wasn’t the cause? We may soon find out. ISIS media al-Furqan is preparing to release a “major” statement and audio release, which is leading many to think they may officially take credit for Flight 804’s crash.
