Hacktivist group, Anonymous has declared war on ISIS following a series of attacks led by the religious extremist group on Paris, France over the weekend which tragically left many people dead or seriously injured.

In the video the group promises to “hunt down” those responsible for the attacks and expose them online. The original video was posted in French and has since been removed, but the group has posted another version in English:
Operation Paris, or OpParis, is focussed on hacking ISIS members and exposing them online, with the group claiming that it has removed over 2000 ISIS supports’ Twitter accounts.

The group also plans to steal other valuable personal information from pro-ISIS people online, as stated in the video. The group promises that it will defend its values and its 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.
Expect a total mobilization on our part.
This violence should not weaken us. It has to give us the strength to come together and fight tirrany and obscurantism together.
The group launched a similar attack earlier this year called Operation ISIS, or OpISIS, in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris and was able to shut down an extremist website, the group saying:
During the attacks of Charlie Hebdo, we had already expressed our determination to neutralise anyone who would attack our freedom.
We’ll be doing the same now, because of the recents attacks.
