The pro-Syrian Government group, the “Syrian Electronic Army (SEA)”, has hacked the UNICEF Twitter account and posted multiple tweets to promote awareness for the civilians killed in the Akrama Neighborhood of the Homs Governate yesterday. The tweets contained the location, the age of the victims, and the details of the terrorist attack that stunned Homs; the posts remained on the UNICEF Twitter account for a half hour before the latter deleted them.
UNICEF posted a tweet stating that they were hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army and that they have deleted all posts. The United Nations group was silent over the terrorist attack, presumably motivating the SEA to take action against the organization; this is the first time since the inception of the Syrian Conflict that the SEA has targeted UNICEF.
Yesterday, 49 civilians at the Akrama Children’s School were victims of twin car-bombs that were detonated in front the building – over 40 children were killed in the attack committed by a Syrian rebel group.
