Daesh has 30,000-website ‘virtual caliphate,’ EU anti-terrorism chief says | Daily Sabah

There are nearly 30,000 websites linked to the Daesh terrorist group, the EU’s Counter-Terrorism Coordinator Gilles de Kerchove said in an interview published Tuesday.

De Kerchove pointed to the dangers of what he called a “virtual caliphate,” underlining importance of efforts to reduce the propaganda on the internet and develop a counter narrative.

A team of 20 specialists work for the EU’s law enforcement agency Europol to spot and report extremist content, de Kerchove said, adding that this team has already flagged 30,000 sites.
