THE END OF ISIS? Russian Airforce Just Destroyed ISIS’ Main Financial Source: 500 Oil Trucks



A day after admitting a terrorist attack brought down a Russian passenger jet over Egypt last month, killing all 224 people on board, Russia announced its warplanes will attack any tanker trucks travelling through territory belonging to the Islamic State in Syria. Within hours it was revealed that, in order to cut off the terrorist group’s biggest source of income, Russian Air Force had destroyed around 500 ISIS fuel trucks transporting illegal oil from Syria to refineries in Iraq.
“Today a decision was taken according to which Russian warplanes are now flying on a so-called ‘free hunt’ against tanker trucks carrying oil products belonging to terrorists in areas controlled by IS. In recent years, Islamic State and other extremist groups have organized the operations of the so-called ‘pipeline on wheels’ on the territories they control. In just the first few days, our aviation has destroyed 500 fuel tanker trucks. This has considerably lowered the ability of the militants to illegally export energy products and their income from contraband oil,” Russian General Staff spokesman Colonel General Andrey Kartapolov was quoted as saying by Russian news agencies.
Kartapolov displayed images showing convoys comprised of hundreds of vehicles transporting oil to back his assertion.
Earlier this week, United States warplanes for the first time attacked hundreds of trucks that the extremist group had been using to smuggle the crude oil it has been producing in Syria. According to an initial assessment, 116 trucks were destroyed in the attack, which took place near Deir al-Zour, an area in eastern Syria that is controlled by the Islamic State.
Hundreds of thousands of tons of fuel have been delivered to Iraq for processing by trucks and the revenue generated from these illegal exports is the one of the terrorists’ main sources of funding, Kartapolov added.

Figures from oil workers in Syria and Iraq along with Western intelligence estimates suggest up to 40,000 barrels are being produced every day in ISIS-held territory. Last month it was revealed ISIS was making more than £320million a year from oil. This wealth has allowed the group to flourish regionally and internationally.

Anonymous Takes Down 5,500 ISIS Accounts After ISIS Calls Them “Idiots”



Anonymous’ biggest operation ever is in full battle flight. #OpParis, the largest Anonymous campaign has so far successfully taken down 5500 social media accounts related to the terrorist group ISIS 24 hours after ISIS called Anonymous “idiots.”
The Anonymous vs ISIS showdown is only the beginning, with Anonymous vowing to wipe the Internet stage of all ISIS activity, rendering ISIS impotent of their recruiting network online.
It comes at a time when Anonymous calls for world unity against ISIS. “Our capability to take down ISIS is a direct result of our collective’s sophisticated hackers, data miners, and spies that we have all around the world. We have people very, very close to ISIS on the ground, which makes gathering intel about ISIS and related activities very easy for us,” Alex Poucher told RT.
The actions from the elite group of Anonymous members have also drawn attention from retired Army General, David Petraeus. In a Foreign Policy report, he commented that these actions and other intelligence recovered could have “considerable value” to counterterrorism operations.
“To date, hacktivists claim to have dismantled some 149 Islamic State-linked websites and flagged roughly 101,000 Twitter accounts and 5,900 propaganda videos. At the same time, this casual association of volunteers has morphed into a new sort of organization, postured to combat the Islamic State in both the Twitter “town square” and the bowels of the deep web.”
Anonymous have declared a “total war” on the terrorist group following the attacks on Paris, and invite the world to show their support.
“[ISIS] does not have hackers like we have hackers,” Poucher expressed, aware of the existence of hackers within the ISIS militant group. “They picked a fight with Anonymous when they attacked Paris, and now they should expect us,” he said, adding that the collective “will not sit by and watch these terror attacks unfold around the world.” The Paris attacks left some 129 people dead and over 300 injured, some still fighting for their lives.

Anonymous Declares War On ISIS, Promises To Hunt Down Paris Attackers



In response to the attacks in Paris that left over a hundred people dead, a group of online hacktivists has launched its biggest operation ever against ISIS. In a chilling video posted soon after the attacks, a man wearing a Guy Fawkes mask warns the Islamic State militants that the group would use its knowledge to “unite humanity” and that the ISIS can “expect us”.
The Anonymous representative addressed the world in French and said:
“These attacks cannot remain unpunished. 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. Expect massive cyber attacks. War is declared. Get prepared.  The French people are stronger than you and will come out of this atrocity even stronger.”


Make no mistake: #Anonymous is at war with #Daesh. We won’t stop opposing #IslamicState. We’re also better hackers. #OpISIS

The hackers’ collective, which consists of unrelated volunteers, coders and activists from around the world, launched its anti-Islamic State online campaign, #OpISIS, after the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris this January. To date, according to an in-depth investigation by Foreign Policy, they have taken down 149 Islamic State-related websites and exposed 101,000 Twitter accounts and 5900 propaganda videos.
