The ISIL terrorist group has hacked the US Central Command’s Twitter and YouTube accounts, and posted internal documents online. ‌

The social media accounts of the US military's Central Command in Florida appear to have been hacked by ISIL sympathizers - posting threatening messages against troops, their families and the home addresses of 4-star US generals.

“AMERICAN SOLDIERS, WE ARE COMING, WATCH YOUR BACK. ISIS," read a message posted on the Twitter account with the hashtag "#CyberCaliphate."

A YouTube account belonging to CentCom was also hacked.

ISIL hackers posted propaganda videos on the CentCom’s YouTube feed. The account was also later disabled.


Hackers had filled the CENTCOM social media site on Monday with threats that said "American soldiers, we are coming, watch your back".
