Recently the worldwide-known hacker group Anonymous claimed that it had defaced the official website of Syria’s Ministry of Defense. The reason for the retaliation was squashing anti-government protesters. However, the move now seems to take on a bit more than just a website.
The famous hacker group successfully hit the website and posted the statement saying that the world would stand with the people of Syria against the brutal regime of Basher al-Assad. According to the hackers’ promise, all tyrants would fall, and thanks to the bravery of the Syrians, Basher al-Assad would be next. Meanwhile, the targeted website is still offline.
Nevertheless, the local media reported that there was a quick response from the side of Syria. It turned out that some Syrian hacker group took a step forward and posted gruesome snaps on the Anonymous’ embryonic social network called AnonPlus. Those messages appeared to come from the group known as “Syrian Electronic Army”. The latter has recently twittered that they have taken a decision to “purify the web of Anonymous’ pathetic site”. The industry observers are waiting impatiently for this to come into live, but no comments or moves have been seen thus far.
It turned out that the Syrian Electronic Army has been linked to defacements of a number of websites which have been noticed to post any material critical of the Syrian regime. Unsurprisingly, the industry observers came to a conclusion that the group is unofficially supported by the government or a military unit in its own right. Among the images uploaded to AnonPlus, there were bloodcurdling photos of burned bodies. The accompanying messages claimed that many Syrian citizens and military personnel have been murdered by the demonstrators. As you can understand, State Propaganda has snapped.
At the moment, Syria is having quite a hard time convincing people in the outside world that the country is actually doing anything more than simply killing people who are believed to be revolting. Thus far, three of the Gulf countries – Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Bahrain – have already recalled their ambassadors to Damascus. The move was done in protest of President Bashar al-Assad’s suppression of the demonstrations.
