Al Arabiya under cyber attack since Egyptian president's ouster

Published: Updated:

Al Arabiya websites have been under ongoing electronic attack since Tuesday July 3, reaching its peak on Monday July 8.

The attacks began after Major General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, commander in chief of the Egyptian armed forces, declared the overthrow of President Mohamed Mursi.

The attacks were first instigated from Egypt, but in the last few days have come from different parts of the world, according to Al Arabiya technicians.

The attacks are aimed at slowing down publication of articles, downloading of pages and videos, and browsing speed.

Al Arabiya’s technical team has suspended the comments and search tabs until it finds solutions to repel the attacks.

Al Arabiya’s channel and websites come under constant attack from various countries.

Transmission of the channel has been jammed from Libya and Egypt over the years, and the site has experienced attacks from Syria and Libya, among other countries.
