Anonymous declares ‘cyber war’ against Islamist militants
In revenge for the killings of Charlie Hebdo journalists, Anonymous vowed to attack websites belonging to radical Islamists
The Belgian offshoot of Hacktivist group Anonymous vowed to attack websites belonging to radical Islamists in revenge for the Paris killings of Charlie Hebdo cartoonists and journalists.
In a YouTube video, the group posted a message in French stating it had “declared war” against terrorist groups.
Directing its message to “al-Qaeda, Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and other terrorists,” Anonymous said it would take down the websites and social media accounts of these militant groups.
Anonymous posted a message on Pastebin, a popular website for storing and sharing text, also in French, which was addressed to the “enemies of the freedom of expression.”
It dubbed its operation as #OpCharlieHebdo.
