Al Assad regime’s supporters hacked the Aljezeera website earlier on Tuesday. Readers who are accustomed to search for news on the Doha-based channel were unable to open its Arabic website. The hackers who are believed to be close to the Syrian regime said that they hacked the channel’s website in retaliation for its “position and attitude against the government and the people of Syria and its support for terrorist armed groups”.
Beset by pressure from the international community with the exception of a few countries, such as China Russia, Algeria and Cuba, Bashar AL Assad has resorted to all kind of tactics in order to delay his downfall. Among this tactics are the hacking of website and the use of accusatory language against the Arab countries who stand by the Syrian people.
Since the breakout of the Syrian revolution, the Assad regime has repeatedly accused some Arab countries of the proxy of the West.
The Permanent Representative of Syria to the United Nations has made it a habit to attack the Permanent Representatives of other Arab countries, especially Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Also, as reported by Morocco World News correspondent in New York, during the General Assembly meetings held over the past 6 months, the Representative of Syria bitterly lashed out at the President of the General Assembly, Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser from Qatar, whom he accused several times of “serving the agenda of the West.”
As recently as last week, during the ministerial meeting on the humanitarian situation in Syria held at the UN Security Council on Thursday in New York, Bashar Al Jaafari, the Permanent Representative of Syria to the United Nations, lashed out at Moroccan King Mohammed VI and taunted Morocco over the Sahara. He leveled his acerbic criticism at the allegiance ceremony, which is held every year on the occasion of the celebration of the enthronement of King Mohammed VI.
