The war on ISIS has begun, with Anonymous claiming to have taken down 5,500 Twitter accounts associated with the terror group.
“We report that more than 5500 Twitter account of ISIS are now down! An account associated with Anonymous’s new front tweeted early Tuesday morning.
According to the Mirror U.K., Anonymous has also collected the names, addresses and phone numbers of several other ISIS suspects living in countries including Afghanistan, Tunisia and Somalia, but has yet to release them.
In a video released Monday, a man wearing a Guy Fawkes mask said the Islamic State militants who claimed responsibility for the Paris attacks were “vermin” and Anonymous would hunt them down.
“These attacks cannot remain unpunished,” the man said in French.
“We are going to launch the biggest operation ever against you. Expect many cyberattacks. War has been declared. Get ready.”
