After the Islamic State (ISIS) claimed responsibility for Friday’s series of attacks that killed 129 people in Paris, the hactivist group called Anonymous declared war on the terrorist faction and its supporters. The hacker group wrote on Twitter over the weekend, using an alternative name for ISIS “Make no mistake: Anonymous is at war with Daesh.”
The group uploaded videos in multiple languages, including English and Italian, in which it vowed to “neutralize” those behind Friday’s attacks. A person wearing a Guy Fawkes mask said “We will not give up, we do not forgive. Expect us.”
On Sunday Anonymous said that over 2,000 ISIS-related Twitter accounts had been taken down in Operation Paris (#OpParis). Given the amorphous and secretive nature of Anonymous, the group’s activities can be hard to verify and track. In the past the hacker collective has threatened to combat ISIS. For instance, last August the group declared “full-scale cyber war” against the Islamic State, saying it would combat the terrorist network’s influence on social media.
Since then, Anonymous has reportedly identified and taken down tens of thousands of pro-ISIS Twitter accounts. An Anonymous member told The Atlantic earlier this year some donation pages for the terror group, listed on the dark web, have also been shuttered by the collective.
