Washington received information about the militants from Israeli spy in the ranks of ISIS*, said the sources. He told the American side that the terrorists want to make a blast on the flight, which goes to the United States, carrying the bomb on Board the plane in the notebook. In the US, the information is considered trustworthy, in connection with what authorities are talking about banning on carrying laptops on flights from Europe.

The article quoted the former head of the National counterterrorism center USA Matt Olsen, who said that now under attack was not only a spy who provided vital information, but also the possibility to recruit new agents in the ranks of ISIS*. He reminded that Russia is not part of the international coalition to combat ISIS* and is not a partner of the United States, making it clear that trump was not supposed to share information about the plans of the rebels with Lavrov.
According to TV channel, assistant to trump national security Herbert McMaster considered acceptable to provide this information, in particular due to the fact that in October 2015 the attack of the Russian aircraft A321 “Kogalymavia” flying from the Egyptian resort of Sharm El-Sheikh to St. Petersburg, crashed in the Sinai Peninsula. Then killed all on Board 217 passengers and seven crew members. According to TASS, McMaster officially confirmed that trump divulged confidential information.

A similar rule the US has already introduced at the end of March in respect of flights from 10 major international airports, located in Jordan, Egypt, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. As reported, Washington fears that passengers from these countries can carry on Board explosive devices under the guise of computers. In this regard, in salon it is possible to take only a mobile phone.
