Syrian Defense Ministry Website Hacked

As the Syrian military continues the Ramadan massacre of its own people, the hacktivists of Anonymous took control of the Ministry of Defense's website today, posting images of dead protesters with the following message:

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.

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

Back in April, hackers also took over the website of Syria's parliament, posting pictures of protesters and playing patriotic songs.

Update: The site seems to be down now.
