Two regional media outlets appeared to be hacked by pro-ISIS hackers on Tuesday, unleashing a string of tweets in support of the terrorist group.

WBOC-TV in Salisbury, Maryland was silent for a couple hours on Monday morning before the account appeared to be taken over.

“With Allah’s permission we began with New-Mexico and we are in Tennessee now. We hacked FBI databases.#CyberCaliphate,” said the first tweet from pro-ISIS hackers.

The group also used the account to claim that “infidels” would “suffer” in the New Year, and post other information.

The group behind the attack has been put forward as the “Cyber Caliphate.”

The group then moved on to the Albuquerque Journal in New Mexico, posting a number of tweets.

“In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful, the CyberCaliphate continues its CyberJihad,” one tweet read, posting press releases from the FBI.

“There is no law but Sharia!” read another.
