The Anonymous hacker group has taken to YouTube to launch an online attack on ISIS and its supporters.
In the wake of Friday night’s attacks in Paris, in which at least 129 people died and more than 400 were injured, the collective says on various Twitter accounts and elsewhere that it’s stepping up its efforts against Islamic extremism.
Under the banner OpParis, the group’s released a video on YouTube in which it threatens to hack into ISIS websites to steal and leak information about supporters’ plans.
“To defend our values and our freedom, we’re tracking down members of the terrorist group responsible these attacks. We will not give up, we will not forgive, and we’ll do all that is necessary to end their actions,” a spokesman in the familiar Guy Fawkes mask explains in the video.
“During the attacks of Charlie Hebdo, we had already expressed our determination to neutralize anyone who would attack our freedom. We’ll be doing the same now, because of the recent attacks. We therefore ask you to gather and to defend these ideals. Expect a total mobilization on our part.”
