The United Cyber Caliphate- a terror organization with strong ties to ISIS- released a message via video this weekend threatening the UK, the US, and Trump specifically, the Sun reports. The message ordered attackers described as "lone wolves" to hunt down and execute those whose names are listed on a "Kill List," urging these operatives to "kill them wherever you find them." The video went on to claim the addresses of those on the list would be released as well.

Then, a few moments later, that list was released.

The list included thousands of names and addresses in Western countries

Of the 8,786 names and addresses on the list, more than 7,000 of them are reportedly American, according to sources. The names range from musicians and celebrities to politicians and religious leaders, reports claim. President Donald Trump is one such name on the list. In fact, the video included a message for the American people that specifically called out the new US president: "Know that we continue to wage war against you.

Know that your counter attacks only make us stronger. The UCC will start a new step in this war against you."

Experts are working around the clock

Reports state that SITE Intelligence Group- a company that specializes in tracking the online footprints of white supremacist and jihadist organizations- is working feverishly to pinpoint the original source of the list. A spokesperson said they are also trying to work out a common theme related to the individuals listed.

If they're successful, they hope to use the information to help decide the authenticity of the threat, and potentially stop something like this from happening again.

Past 'lists' have been nothing but propaganda

While it seems alarming, the same spokesperson (whose name is not mentioned for security) said that there have been several "kill lists" released in the past that have ultimately amounted to nothing.

In fact, Westernjournalism reports that within the span of three months in mid-2016, eight such lists were released. They targeted citizens in New York and Texas, along with 50 US State Department officials, but no attacks were ever reported. ISIS is an expert manipulator of the media, and sources warn to be wary, but not to cower in fear.

Analysts believe this list may have been released in an effort by the terror organization to retaliate after its leader, one Osed Agha, was allegedly killed in a recent airstrike.
