Anonymous declares cyber war on Turkey

"We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us."

This is the melodramatic sign-off of the latest video threat from cyber activist group Anonymous, announcing that they are now aiming their unique brand of online justice at the nation of Turkey.

In a short video now removed from YouTube, Anonymous accuses the government of Turkey of buying oil from Daesh (Isis) and treating their fighters in its hospitals.

By way of retaliation, Anonymous is threatening to attack Turkey's internet systems, banks and government web services. 

The video, captured above by The Daily Mail shortly before its removal from YouTube, states the following:

As many of you have heard, Turkey have been supporting Daesh by buying oil from them and hospitalising their fighters. We won’t accept that Erdogan, the leader of Turkey, will help ISIS any longer.

If you don’t stop supporting ISIS, we will continue attacking your internet, your root DNS, your banks and take your government sites down.

After the root DNS we will start to hit your airports, military assets and private state connections. We will destroy your critical banking infrastructure.

Stop this insanity now Turkey. Your fate is in your own hands.

Anonymous claims to be behind an attack on Turkish web servers last week, which saw as many as 40,000 Turkish websites suffer connection issues.

Quite how Anonymous wants Turkey to demonstrate it isn't supporting Daesh hasn't been made clear. An emoji-filled Tweet? A YouTube promise? We'll have to wait and see.
