LONDON -- Hacker group Anonymous that had declared a war on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has published details of alleged ISIS recruiters and took at least 5,500 Twitter accounts down.

According to the Mirror, the masked hacking group declared war against the Islamic State in the wake of the Paris attacks, vowing to silence extremist propaganda and expose undercover operatives.

Now it has leaked details of at least five men it claims are recruiters for ISIS.

Anonymous activists also claimed to have identified a "high-ranking" recruiter living in Europe, but have not yet published an address.

Anonymous is now compiling a massive list of Twitter accounts and web pages ahead of a large cyber-assault due to take place later on Wednesday evening.
