Hackers affiliated to the Islamic State militants have claimed responsibility for releasing the name and home addresses of 100 US Air Force and Navy personnel, who they allege have taken part in bombing Isis targets in Syria and Iraq.
The group that calls itself the Islamic State Hacking Division is believed to have hacked into the military dossier of the US Defence and leaked the information on Justpaste.it, where it then made a call for "jihad against the crusaders."
The group also posted an image of a gun and a sword along with a message that says: "... And kill them wherever you find them."
Calling on the "lone wolves" and Isis supporters in the US, it said: "O Brothers in America, know that the jihad against the crusaders is not limited to the lands of the Khilafah, it is a world-wide jihad and their war is not just war against the Islamic State, it is war against Islam."
"These Kuffar that drop bombs over Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Khurasan and Somalia are from the same lands that you reside in, so when will you take action?" the group asks.
"Know that it is wajib for you to kill these kuffar! and now we have made it easy for you by giving you addresses, all you need to do is take the final step, so what are you waiting for? Kill them in their own lands, behead them in their own homes, stab them to death as they walk their streets thinking they are safe..."
While the validity of the claim can't be confirmed independently, a Pentagon spokesperson told NY Daily News that it is investigating into the matter.
