Anonymous target Daesh

On November 15th representatives of hacktivist group Anonymous declared ‘war’ on Daesh in response to the terror attacks in Paris on November 13th.

Prior to the Paris attacks the Syrian-base terror organisation had been commonly referred to as ISIS but in recent days world leaders and media outlets have begun referring to the group as Daseh, an acronym for al-Dawla al-Islamiya fi al-Iraq wa al-Sham. The organisation had previously used this name but its use is now banned by the organisation’s leadership. World leaders have begun using this name instead of ISIS because the terror organisation is nether a state nor does it represent Islam.

During the first 24 hours Anonymous claimed responsibility for the closure of over 5,000 Twitter accounts linked to the Syrian based terror organisation.
