A list of more than hundred Twitter and Facebook accounts suspected to belong to Islamic militants has been released by Anonymous.

Thousands of Twitter accounts associated with terrorist group Islamic State (ISIS) are still active and spreading jihadist propaganda despite a campaign by the hacktivist collective Anonymous to take them down.
Anonymous also left a message for them:
Anonymous hackers also threatened to target Saudi Arabia and related nations for funding and supporting ISIS group. In a previous note they explained, “We are unable to target ISIS because they predominantly fight on the ground. But we can go after the people or states who fund them.”
