NEW DELHI: As the US led coalition continues a major offensive against Daesh, also known as the Islamic State, in Iraq and Syria, the controversial hacker group Anonymous has revealed their plan to fight the group. The hacktivists, who choose to use technology to wage their wars in the form of website hacks, revealed #OpISIS on Twitter.
This time, however, the group has decided to take part of the war off line, and has decided to sell Daesh branded lingerie, specifically thongs and G-Strings, in an attempt to enrage the militant group.
Anonymous tweeted out a picture of the skimpy underwear emblazoned with the distinctive Daesh flag. "#Anonymous might start selling #IslamicState-branded thongs/g-strings. Interested? #TrollingISIS #OpISIS,” a message accompanying it read.
The strategy fits into #OpIsis, with a statement issued by the group reading: "ISIS, we will hunt you, take down your sites, accounts, emails and expose you… You will be treated like a virus, and we are the cure. We own the internet."
The group has claimed a number of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, targeting Daesh affiliated websites and platforms.
Video statements issued by the group can be viewed below:
The two hashtags used by the group, namely #OpISIS and #TrollingISIS have seen some traction on Twitter.
