NATO’s humanitarian mission in Turkey and Syria is disrupted by cyberattacks
Pro-Russian hacking group Killnet took responsibility for disrupting communication between NATO and military aircraft supplying aid to victims of the Turkey-Syria earthquake. The cyberattacks are believed to be carried out in retaliation for NATO’s support of Ukraine.
NATO officials confirmed the incident and stated that DDos led to the NATO Special Operations Headquarters website and other websites going down for a couple of hours. Moreover, The Strategic Airlift Capability (SAC), an organisation that relies on NATO support to provide military and humanitarian airlifts, was reportedly affected.
