ISIS has released a new propaganda video that threatens Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter’s Jack Dorsey, the 25-minute film “Flames of the Supporters,” released by an ISIS affiliated hacker group calling itself “the sons of the Caliphate army” came in response to recent efforts by Facebook and Twitter to rid their platforms of terrorists accounts, in the video published this Wednesday, the militant group displays an image of Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey covered in bullet holes, It also shows screenshots of ISIS fighters’ accounts on the social platforms, as if to mock their efforts on shutting down terrorists account stating that ten new accounts will be opened for every deleted one.
At the end of the video, it warns: “To Mark and Jack, founders of Twitter and Facebook and to their Crusader government. You announce daily that you suspended many of your accounts, and to you we say: Is that all you can do? You are not in our league.” Threats like this have been occurring for a long time, back in 2014 the militant group called upon its supporters to kill the Twitter co-founder.
The terrorists also claim they’ve hacked more than 10,000 Facebook accounts, more than 150 Facebook groups and more than 5,000 Twitter profiles.
The battle over the terrorist group started long ago, earlier on Twitter announced it had deleted 125,000 accounts associated with the terrorist group, Ghost Security Group also uncovered an Android app “Alwari” distributed by the terrorist group. Recently tech teams such as Apple, Twitter, Snapchat, Facebook, and others gathered at the Department of Justice to discuss strategies to combat ISIS rhetoric and online recruitment.
The social media giants are yet to respond to the threat.
