Members of the online collective have posted a video . It continues the group’s work against Isis, which began strongly following the Charlie Hebdo attacks in January.
In a video posted soon after the attacks, a person claiming to represent the group warns members of Islamic State that it intends to hunt them down. It said that it would “unite humanity” in the operation, which it claimed would use hacking to weaken the group.
“Anonymous from all over the world will hunt you down,” said the voice in the video, which included footage of the group’s famous Guy Fawkes mask and was in French. “You should know that we will find you and we will not let you go.
“We will launch the biggest operation ever against you.
“Expect massive cyber attacks. War is declared. Get prepared.
“The French people are stronger than you and will come out of this atrocity even stronger.”
Anonymous has made repeated calls to action against Isis since the Charlie Hebdo attacks in January. Very shortly after the attacks, it started taking down extremist websites and has been running campaigns on social media ever since.
