Anonymous has vowed fresh attacks against social media accounts affiliated with Isis, warning its supporters: “We will hunt you down and expose you.”
The hacking collective’s latest post comes after it “declared war” on jihadist websites and social networks in response to the Charlie Hebdo shooting massacre in January.
The group claimed it has disabled some Twitter and Facebook accounts used by Isis supporters.
Isis has continuously used social media and the internet as a channel for disseminating propaganda, circulating brutal videos of hostages being killed and as a tool for radicalising and recruiting new members.
The video explains that ‘Operation Isis’ is continuing and begins with the message that members of Anonymous are from all races, ethnicities, economic backgrounds and sexualities.
“We are Muslims, Christians, Jews. We are hackers, crackers, Hacktivist, phishers, agents, spies, or just the guy from next door,” it says.
“We are young and old, gay or straight […] we come from all races, countries, religions and ethnicities – united as one, divided by zero. We are Anonymous.”
