CENTCOM confirmed in a statement that its Twitter account had been “compromised”stating that it “is taking appropriate measures to address the matter.”

Additionally, Cyber Caliphate hacked the YouTube account associated with Central Command, where the header image was replaced with the same “I love you ISIS” image. Propaganda videos were then uploaded that were titled: “FLAMES OF WAR ISIS VIDEO,” “O Soldiers of Truth Go Forth,” and “Airstrike against an ISIS warehouse, Dec. 29, near Fallujah, Iraq,” which all feature graphic terrorism footage.
