A pro-Islamic State hacking group sent a chilling warning to members of the U.S. military and government Wednesday, promising followers of the organization would retaliate “very soon” for overseas bombing targeting the militant group. 

A representative for the Islamic State Hacking Division told The Blaze the group is constantly spying on U.S. servicemen. On Tuesday, the group published personal information purported to belong to U.S. military and government workers online. 

“Just like they spy on muslims, we are spying on them, watching their employees, watching their soldiers, recording their movements and taking their location information and passing it on to the soldiers of the Islamic State,” the anonymous source told The Blaze. 

“They have no security just like their employees and military personnel have no OpSec,” he continued, “They are people who like to brag and boast and this is to our advantage.”

Using the anonymous messaging app, Kik, the source told The Blaze the group is not focused on attacking military bases and secured buildings, but said jihadist fighters “can now turn up in their houses. In their homes. This is war, what did you expect? u think u can bomb the islamic state and we don’t do nothing back? soon, very soon you will see.”

When asked what kind of attacks could be expected, the source replied, “you will see when US military and government personnel start getting beheaded in their homes.” 

The source boasted of the hacking group’s skill set, claiming the group “probably” could have breached former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server. 

He did not specify the group’s methodology however, saying, “Let the US gov figure that out,” The Blaze reported.
