Following Tuesday’s deadly terror attacks on Belgium, Hacktivists Anonymous group have once again threatened the Islamic State (ISIS) with cyber warfare.
The hacking group on Wednesday, released a new video vowing to continue ‘hacking their websites, shutting down their Twitter accounts and stealing their Bitcoins’.
The ISIS attack on Belgium killed at least 34 people and injured over 230 in suicide bombings at Zaventem airport and the Maelbeek metro stop. Two of the brothers responsible for the attack were killed, while one remains on the run.
Appearing in the video was one masked man who spoke with a computerised voice using the hashtag #OpBrussels to promote the actions and encourage others to join in. The speaker said: “Our freedom is once again under attack. This cannot continue.
“Following the attacks in Paris last November, we have fought daily against terrorism and we have silenced thousands of Twitter accounts directly linked to ISIS. We severely punish Daesh on the dark net, hacked their electronic portfolio and stolen money from the terrorists.
“We have laid siege to your propaganda websites, tested them with our cyber-attacks, however we will not rest as long as terrorists continue their actions around the world.
“We will strike back against them. We will keep hacking their websites, shutting down their Twitter accounts and stealing their Bitcoins. We defend the rights of freedom and tolerance.
“To the supporters of Daesh, we will track you down, we will find you, we are everywhere and we are more than you can imagine. Be afraid. When they killed innocent civilians in Belgium, they hit everybody in Europe. We have to fight back.
“Everyone can contribute to our efforts and we invite you to fight with us. You will find the link with this video, which will indicate how.
“But you don’t have to hack them, if you stand up against discrimination in your country, you will harm them much more than by hacking their websites.
“The Islamic State cannot recruit Muslims in Europe if they are accepted and included in the society. So we want all of you to stand together against discrimination.
“We are Anonymous, we are legion, we do not forgive, we do not forget, we are free. Respect us.”
Anonymous released a similar video days after the ISIS-perpetrated Paris attacks, in which 130 people were killed and hundreds more wounded.
