DAMASCUS, (SANA) – The Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) website on Saturday was attacked by foreign sides which try to prevent the Syrian national media from conveying the truth of events and unmasking the conspiracy hatched against Syria.

After the failure of several attempts to hack the website and publish fabricated news on it, foreign sides targeted the website with a distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS attack).

In the same context, anonymous sides stole SANA logo from the website and designed an advertisement in English and Arabic that includes provocative calls and distributed it through email.

On June 27th, an armed terrorist group attacked al-Ikhbariya Satellite TV Channel headquarters, destroyed it and stole its equipment before blowing it up.

SANA website is a multi-lingual website. It publishes news and articles in seven languages: English, French, Russian, Chinese, Spanish, Turkish and Arabic.
