The hacktivists warned the Islamic State group they would hunt down all supporters of the Islamic State group online.
“Anonymous from all over the world will hunt you down,” the a spokesperson in the video. “You should know that we will find you and we will not let you go.”

RT reports that Anonymous has been defending France's “cyber-borders” since the attack on Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine in January through an online campaign dubbed #OpISIS.
The Russian news outlet also said Anonymous has dismantled 14 Islamic State group-related websites and flagged over 100,000 Twitter accounts that are allegedly linked to the Islamic State group, as well as 5,900 propaganda videos.
The group's spokesperson, wearing the iconic Guy Fawkes mask in the YouTube video, said Anonymous will make use of all their skills to unite the world against the Islamic State group, which should “expect massive cyber attacks.”
“War is declared. Get prepared,” the group said in the video post, according to RT. “The French people are stronger than you and will come out of this atrocity even stronger.”
Anonymous' first appearance was 2003 and they became widely known for a series of well-executed public attacks on corporations, religious and governmental bodies, said Sky News.
