Reading Time: < 1 minute

Turkish hackers claimed to have hijacked for more than 90 minutes the official websites of the Greek parliament, the foreign affairs and economy ministries, as well as the country’s stock exchange.

On their Facebook page, the hacker’s group, Anka Neferler Tim, justified their actions by saying that “Greece is threatening Turkey in the Aegean Sea and in the Eastern Mediterranean. And now it’s threatening the conference on Libya”, AFP reported.

The hacking came as Eastern Libya military leader Khalifa Haftar held talks in Athens, two days ahead of a peace conference in Berlin, which he and the head of Tripoli’s UN-recognised government, Fayez al-Sarraj, are expected to attend.

Ankara is providing military support for the government of Sarraj and has announced it is sending troops to Libya to help push back attacks by Haftar’s forces.
