Anonymous hacks Syrian ministry of defence website
On Monday, the website for the Syrian ministry of defence appeared to be inaccessible but earlier screenshots showed the anti-government message criticising President Bashar al-Assad, complete with the Anonymous logo.
The statement posted on the site declared: ‘To the Syrian people: The world stands with you against the brutal regime of Bashar Al-Assad. Know that time and history are on your side - tyrants use violence because they have nothing else, and the more violent they are, the more fragile they become.
‘We salute your determination to be non-violent in the face of the regime's brutality, and admire your willingness to pursue justice, not mere revenge. All tyrants will fall, and thanks to your bravery Bashar Al-Assad is next.’
The message added: ‘To the Syrian military: You are responsible for protecting the Syrian people, and anyone who orders you to kill women, children, and the elderly deserves to be tried for treason. No outside enemy could do as much damage to Syria as Bashar Al-Assad has done. Defend your country - rise up against the regime! -- Anonymous.’
The message appeared after Syrian forces launched a pre-dawn assault on the rebel-controlled city of Deir al-Zour in the east of the country.
At least 50 people are believed to have been killed in the fighting as international pressure on President Assad to halt the deadly crackdown on dissent continues to grow.
