What the actual story is?

Anonymous has claimed responsibility for the week-long cyberattack on Turkey, which it accused of supporting the jihadist ISIS and threatened additional attacks in case the alleged support continues.  In a statement group said ‘Turkey is supporting Daesh [ISIL] by buying oil from them, and hospitalizing their fighters. We won’t accept that Erdoğan, the leader of Turkey, will help [ISIL] any longer. We will continue attacking your internet, your root DNS, your banks and take your government sites down. After the root DNS, we will start to hit your airports, military assets and private state connections. We will destroy your critical banking infrastructure.”
