“We Will Hunt You Down” – a strong message released by one of Anonymous members to the Islamic State (ISIS) who claimed responsibility on the attack through a video message posted on YouTube as the beginning of #OpParis – a campaign to hunt down ISIS’ social media accounts and each and every single supporter of the jihadist group online.

The campaign was announced on several social platforms like Twitter where several members of the said hacktivists posted series of Tweets to warn ISIS that they will use their vast knowledge to “unite humanity” in a fight against the menace of Islamist extremists.
Anonymous from all over the world will hunt you down. You should know that we will find you and we will not let you go. We will launch the biggest operation ever against you. – The group’s spokesperson behind a signature Guy Fawkes Mask.
The campaign was no new as Anonymous since started to defend French’s cyber-borders following the Charlie Hebdo massacre and killed 18 journalists, innocent bystanders and police officers in January.The campaign was called #OpISIS where the group hacked, defaced unmasked and leaked thousands of ISIS Twitter accounts.

This time, expect the same thing to happen again. In a separate tweet, the group posted a message saying:
We are upping our game, you will now be hit by major cyber-attacks, I will be speaking to all the most prominent #OpIceISIS teams and supporters such as @TheBinarySec, @CtrlSec, @OpIceISIS and we will work together to take down all ISIS cyber communications and your accounts, haha good luck with keeping them.
