Extremist Content Online: Pro-ISIS Magazine Promotes Terorrist Attacks

The Counter Extremism Project (CEP) reports weekly on the methods used by extremists to exploit the Internet and social media platforms to recruit followers and incite violence. Last week, the eighth edition of the pro-ISIS web magazine “Voice of Hind” was released on multiple websites and declared to supporters that it is permissible for women, children, and the elderly to be killed in terrorist attacks. Also, ISIS released a new propaganda video, “To Be Absolved Before Your Lord 2,” through the group’s self-proclaimed Khorasan Province depicting combat footage between ISIS and Taliban forces as well as footage of slain Taliban fighters killed in action. In addition, a pro-ISIS chat on the RocketChat platform distributed approximately three dozen emails and login information for accounts with the virtual private network (VPN) service Nord.
