[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]ISIS hackers, who call themselves the Cyber Caliphate, announced via Twitter and other social media that a cyber attack will happen today at 2 pm ET and will affect numerous cities, though the cities were not named. Calling it ‘a Message to America,’ the Islamic State did not offer specifics, only saying that it would be something ‘surprising’ that will ‘frighten America.’

Though the authenticity of the threat has not been verified, ISIS did promise strikes against America following the attempted attack in Garland, Texas. Two American Muslim jihadists stormed the ‘Draw Muhammad’ event with AK-47s in an effort to kill event attendees, and especially event organizer Pamela Geller. They did not make it far. After shooting a security guard in the leg, a Garland police officer killed both terrorists with his service revolver.
ISIS has since issued a fatwa against Geller, calling for her death.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
