An ISIS owned Twitter account this week has come out with the Jihadist group’s first specific call for the assassination of American targets, and they are… drum roll… Twitter employees.
Vocativ.com reported that the call for retribution against the popular online service was first announced Sunday night in a string tweets asking “lone wolves” to attack Twitter employees in the U.S. and Europe.
Twitter has been closing down ISIS accounts as fast as they have been opened, as it does similar fanatical organizations, in an attempt to block their murderous propaganda and praises for violence.
ISIS et al have been successful at combating those restrictions, but now they’ve had enough, and they’re going to kill the censors. Literally.
The following are translations of ISIS tweets from this week, all from Twitter handle @dawlamoon:
“#The_Concept_of_Lone_Wolf_Attacks The time has arrived to respond to Twitter’s management by directly attacking their employees and physically assassinating them!! Those who will carry this out are the sleepers cells of death.”
#The_Concept_of_Lone_Wolf_Attacks Twitter management should know that if they do not stop their campaign in the virtual world, we will the bring the war to them in the real world on the ground.”
“#The_Concept_of_Lone_Wolf_Attacks Every Twitter employee in San Francisco in the United States should bear in mind and watch over himself because on his doorstep there might be a lone wolf assassin waiting.”
“#Attacking_Twitter_Employees is on the agenda of mujahedeen and lone wolves who are across Europe.”
Vocativ claims @dawlamoon stands for Al Nusra Al Maqdisia (The Supporters of Jerusalem), a Palestinian group loyal to ISIS. Twitter suspended the account on Monday, after the threats to their employees were posted.
