Hackers have completely destroyed the Somali Jihadists propaganda media channels. The Al Shabaab website Sommalia mmemo was taken down in a cyber-attack. The Islamist group’s Radio Andullus was also destroyed (off air). Al Shabaab has been thriving in airing their propaganda in these two media channels affiliated to the group.
The successful cyber-attack on the Al Shabaab media outlets comes when the group has been publishing alarming propaganda about attacking Kenya Police Officers.
Terrorism is a global threat and Cyber warfare offers an important environment to counter the Islamist from using online platform to amplify their propaganda agendas.
