Washington: The Islamic State (IS) group has reportedly launched a massive social media campaign, urging every Muslim living in the West to act as a "city wolf".

According to the Washington Times, following the recent terror attacks in France, the Islamic State posted Tweets calling on jihadists to kill more Westerners and to celebrate the lives of the three Muslims who slaughtered 17 innocent civilians and police on a rampage that began on Jan.

The Islamic State started the campaign on Sunday via two affiliated media groups, Al-Battar and Al-Ghuraba. 

Robert Maginnis, a retired Army officer and military analyst said that IS` social media sophistication was working and needed to be defeated quickly.

He added the "IS` strategy to harness social media challenges the West`s military dominance by reaching past our governments to the people."

The group used the hashtag #FightForHim - a reference to the Prophet Muhammad - over 3,000 times on Twitter since early Sunday, the report said.
