A Muslim group announced on Monday that it has launched a successful cyberattack on the servers of the Saudi Army in retaliation for its role in the recent assassination of Hezbollah commander Hassan Hawlo Lakkis.
The group which calls itself, the Cyber Resistance Group, said it has hacked the Saudi army's servers and extracted crucial information and data, including the full information and files of 1,000 Saudi officers.
"We, the Islamic Cyber Resistance Group, followers of prophet Mohammad (S.A), have conducted an operation, in the name of martyr Hassan Lakkis to revenge his assassination," the group said in a statement released on its website.
Haj Hassan Hawlo Lakkis, an Islamic Resistance leader, was assassinated in front of his home in St. Therese-Hadath on December 4, while he was on his way back from his work.
The Saudi army is believed to be supporting the Al-Qaeda and the Wahhabi Jihadists fighting against the Syrian army now.
