“Our capability to take down ISIS is a direct result of our collective’s sophisticated hackers, data miners, and spies that we have all around the world. We have people very, very close to ISIS on the ground, which makes gathering intel about ISIS and related activities very easy for us,” said Alex Poucher, a spokesman for Anonymous.
He also added that they have built tools that “might be better than any world government’s tools to combat ISIS online.”
“They picked a fight with Anonymous when they attacked Paris, and now they should expect us,” he said, adding that the collective “will not sit by and watch these terror attacks unfold around the world.”
However, as of Monday, 900 ISIS-related Twitter accounts had already been suspended after Anonymous posted a list of them online.
Anonymous released a video on Monday stating that the collective would “launch the biggest operation ever” against Islamic State (formerly ISIS/ISIL), following the Friday attacks in Paris that left 129 people dead and 352 injured.
