EU, US police cripple ISIS media mouthpieces

Published: Updated:

EU and US police forces have crippled the main mouthpieces of the ISIS militant group in a coordinated take-down operation across several countries, the European police agency said Friday.

“With this ground-breaking operation we have punched a big hole in the capability of ISIS to spread propaganda online and radicalize young people in Europe,” the head of Europol Rob Wainwright said.

The operation particularly targeted the Amaq news agency used by ISIS to broadcast claims of attacks and spread its message of jihad.
