Hacker group Anonymous has announced war against ISIS following the terror attacks in Paris on 13th of November Friday night.
In a video posted on YouTube, the group claimed it would use its expertise to “unite humanity” and will hunt the terror group down. “You should know that we will find you and we will not let you go. We will launch the biggest operation ever against you” said a person donning the iconic Anonymous mask.
“Expect massive cyber attacks. War is declared. Get prepared. The French people are stronger than you and will come out of this atrocity even stronger.”
The hacker group expressed the same via its Twitter account:
Make no mistake: #Anonymous is at war with #Daesh. We won’t stop opposing #IslamicState. We’re also better hackers. #OpISIS

It isn’t the first time Anonymous has issued such stern warning against the terror group. Earlier this year, the hacker group claimed in a tweet it had succeeded in taking down ansar-alhaqq.net, an alleged terror-mongering site.
Over the past few months ISIS has extensively used modern communication tools, particularly social media, to spread its ideology. The group released several videos that included beheading and other violent content. Extremist groups across the world are now using social media and others to target youth which is highly active on these platforms.
Following the Paris attack, ISIS had released yet another message that warned the countries taking part in Syria airstrikes.
