In response to YouTube’s removal of a controversial video, Izz ad-Din al-Qassam announces a truce.

The hacktivist group known as Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Cyber Fighters who were responsible for DDOs attacks against major banks around the U.S. has announced that it is suspending operations. This announcement comes in direct response to YouTube’s removal of a trailer for the highly debated film “Innocence of Muslims.”

The Iran-based group began attacks in October, hitting several of the largest banks in the U.S. including Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Citibank, JPMorgan Chase, and CapitalOne. The attacks quickly gained the attention of security experts who remarked on the sophistication of the series of assaults which used thousands of compromised servers.
