The Paris attacks rattled the entire nation which lost 129 people and saw almost 415 being rushed to the hospital. ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks which targeted seven different locations which had numerous people enjoying their Friday night.
Following ISIS’ claim over the attacks, hacker group ‘Anonymous’ posted a video on YouTube which said that the group aims at uniting humanity and will find the terrorist group and not let them go. The video showed a spokesperson wearing a Guy Fawkes mask which is synonymous to the hacker group. The person spoke in French and revealed the intentions of Anonymous to launch the biggest operation against ISIS.
France has named four of the suicide bombers involved in the attacks. Ibrahim Abdeslam who blew himself up outside the Comptoir Voltaire restaurant was a 31 year old Belgian. His 26-year old brother Salah Abdeslam is supposedly on the run because he is wanted by the French Police. There is no information whether he is dead or alive.
Bilal Hadfi is also a Belgian who was identified as one of the attackers. French National Omar Ismail Mostefai was another attacker who was identified by his severed finger. He was responsible for the attack at the Bataclan Concert Hall where 89 people lost their lives. The audience at the hall were enjoying a performance by Eagles of Death Metal when gunmen entered the hall and started open-firing. Another attacker named by France is Ahmed Almuahmed who was a Syrian and had arrived in Greece on a refugee boat.
The horrifying attacks have overwhelmed the nation and crowds gathered at the Notre Dame Cathedral for a memorial service following the attack. While it has instigated the whole country, the video posted by Anonymous has had a chilling effect on people around the world.
