Qatar claims its news agency hacked by neighbors
Jun 21, Doha: Qatar says it has evidence showing the same “neighboring” countries that are leading a boycott campaign against Doha had a hand in the hacking of its state news agency.
Attorney General Ali bin Fetais al-Marri Ali bin Fetais al-Marri said, ““We have evidence to show that iPhones originating from the countries laying restriction on us have been used in this hacking. We have enough evidence to point the finger of blame at these countries,”
Qatar said hackers had broken into the QNA website and published the fake news, but the denial did not convince the Riyadh regime and its Persian Gulf Arab allies. Qatari attorney general said it was “very soon” to give specific phone numbers for those he said were responsible for the hacking.
Qatari investigators had traced internet service providers used to the Saudi-led allied countries. “We have sent the information to the countries concerned and we are awaiting their response,” Marri pointed out, adding, “As far as we are concerned the case is very clear.”
