An ISIS kill list that was released last month reveals the terrorist group is targeting 700 specific U.S. Army soldiers to kill.
Over the past several months, the pro-ISIS hacking group called the United Cyber Caliphate has created multiple hit lists targeting people that they want to be killed from countries all over the world. Government officials have previously stated that organization is a group of “wanna-be” hackers. The groups kill lists are widely available to the public and require no hacking skill to access as most of their kill lists involve people they randomly find on social media. The organization then posts the list on Telegram which is an online messaging service that is popular among Islamic extremist groups.
The Washington Times reviewed the list and reported that the names of the soldiers from the infantry and the United States Special Forces on the list are from several bases including Fort Bragg, Fort Leavenworth, Fort Riley and Fort Belvoir.
The list of names is not currently public.
The list’s headline is “We want them #dead. #Revenge for Muslims. Kill the dogs.”
The list was obtained by Middle East Media Research Institute, which regularly monitors radical groups.
In June, the organization released a kill list of more than 8,000 names, most of them being American citizens.
