Over the past two days there was an international police action against the propaganda apparatus of terrorist organization Islamic State. Servers belonging to Amaq, a press agency affiliated with the terrorist organization, were seized in the Netherlands, NOS reports. 

In Europe, the action was led by Europol - the cooperation of police forces in the European Union. The aim of the action was to "thoroughly destabilize" ISIS propaganda. Servers used to spread ISIS propaganda were dismantled and confiscated. The police are working to identify and arrest the administrators of these servers.

Police actions were carried out simultaneously in the Netherlands, Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Romania, the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States.

Whether any arrests were made is unclear. The police refused to comment, NOS reports.
