After the statements of the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad AlThani, which were quoted by Qatar News Agency on Tuesday, the state-run agency said that its website was hacked. The emir’s statements that tackled Iran, Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaeda, were made during the military graduation ceremony for the 8th batch of National Service recruits in the North Camp field.
Here is evidence that the QNA website was not hacked:
First: The Qatari television channel has aired Tamim’s remarks during the news bulletin, hours before saying that the website was hacked.
Second: The Qatari agency published Tamim’s statements on its Instagram account in Arabic. It is worth mentioning that the Instagram account that is connected to the Facebook account with security information, is very difficult to hack.
Third: The Qatari agency published Tamim’s statements on its Instagram account in English. However, the English account of the Qatari agency on Instagram published the news and then deactivated the entire account.
Fourth: The QNA published Tamim’s statements on the Google Plus account that is very difficult to hack; Google has always praised the high security measures for its accounts.
