Chaotic Scene Inside Brussels Airport After Attack


Anonymous is not taking Tuesday's terror attacks on Belgium lying down. Sky News reported Wednesday the hacktivist collective has released a new video in which it once again takes aim at ISIS, which took credit for the March 22 bombings in Brussels that left dozens dead and hundreds injured.

"Our freedom is once again under attack," said a computerized voice in the latest video. "This cannot continue."

The group goes on to explain that, following the Islamic State's attack on Paris in November, it hit the terrorist organization hard, shutting down "thousands" of its Twitter accounts, stealing its money and its bitcoins, "severely punished Daesh on the dark net" and hacked ISIS's propaganda sites.

And indeed, Anonymous released a similar video days after the ISIS-perpetrated Paris attacks, in which 130 people died and hundreds more were wounded. In that video, the group declared war on the Islamic State and warned that it should "expect massive cyberattacks."

When ISIS struck Brussels, at least 34 people died and 230 were injured in suicide bombings at Zaventem airport and the Maelbeek metro stop. Two of the brothers responsible for the attack were killed, while one remains on the run. The situation is similar to that in Paris following November's terrorist blitz, and as such, Anonymous is renewing its efforts against the Islamic State.

"We will not rest as long as terrorists continue their actions around the world," the voice says in Wednesday's video. "We will strike back against them. ... We defend the rights of freedom and tolerance. To the supporters of Daesh: We will track you down. We will find you. We are everywhere and we are more than you can imagine. Be afraid. When they kill innocent civilians in Belgium, they hit everybody in Europe. We have to fight back."

The group also stressed the necessity of unity and acceptance, urging viewers not to fall back on discrimination against an entire religious group for the actions of a small sect.

"If you stand up to discrimination in your country, you harm them much more than by hacking their websites. The Islamic State cannot recruit Muslims in Europe if they are accepted in society. So we want all of you to stand together against discrimination."

"We do not forgive," the video continued. "We do not forget. ... Expect us."
