After the Paris Attack last week that left 129 people dead with more than 350 injured, the Hacktivist group called “Anonymous” has declared war against the Islamic State, also known as ISIS. They warned the terrorist group in a video released saying “We have launched the biggest operation ever. We will hunt you down.” The original video was in french posted above. In fact their Cyber War is already on and on Twitter they reported that already 5500 ISIS Twitter accounts have been taken down.

Until Monday, over 900 ISIS twitter accounts were taken down since Anonymous posted a list of them online. Although this is not the first time, Hacktivist group seems to be very aggressive this against ISIS and so does their statements. Here is what they said in the video:
“They picked a fight with Anonymous when they attacked Paris, and now they should Expect us. will not sit by and watch these terror attacks unfold around the world.
Anonymous from all over the world will hunt you down. You should know that we will find you and we will not let you go. The French people are strong than you and will come out of this atrocity even stronger.”
Since the Militants group have Hackers of their own too, Anonymous spokesperson seems confident while saying:
“Does not have hackers like we have hackers. We have Tools might be better than any world government’s tools to combat ISIS online.”
“We will launch the Biggest operation ever against you. Expect massive Cyber attacks. War is declared. Get Prepared.”
While the Anonymous is on Cyber attack (#OpParis #OpISIS #ExpectUs), meanwhile the French government too has launched full scale operations against ISIS via air strikes that includes 10 fighter jets dropped a total of 20 bombs in Syria at the militant groups’ de-facto capital. They succeeded in destroying the training camp Raqqa city where the attacks on Paris were planned.
