EU-led Operation Strikes IS Web Media

Europol reported earlier this week that an international operation led by the EU had dealt a major blow to the Islamic State’s internet propaganda.

The attack was carried out by cyber experts from various European countries, Canada and the US who conducted a “simultaneous multinational takedown” of IS media where digital evidence and servers had been seized.

Europol head Rob Wainwright said that the operation had punched a big hole IS’ propaganda and radicalization efforts, and the data they retrieved will be used by the police to identify the administrators behind IS media outlets and other radicalised individuals.
