On August 11, 2016, the pro-Islamic State (ISIS) Telegram channel “Nasher Grpahics” posted a message to ISIS supporters, warning them not avoid joining groups on the messaging service WhatsApp claiming to be pro-ISIS.

The post referred to an announcement on an alleged pro-ISIS group on WhatsApp, which featured a link to another group falsely using the name of the known pro-ISIS Ashhad Media Foundation, likely as a way to fool ISIS supporters (see right side of image above).
