Bahrain-based hackers breached the systems of the US Navy Fifth Fleet, accessing confidential documents.
On Sunday, the hacking collective known as al-Toufan (Flood) team executed an operation targeting the US Fifth Fleet stationed in Bahrain, which they believe posed a threat to maritime navigation in the West Asia region.
The group claimed that they acquired data containing images and maps from within the American military base in Bahrain.
Why the US Navy Fifth Fleet?
Releasing a portion of the documents, the group stated, “Our collection surpasses what has been revealed, and it will be delivered to those who support and stand by the operations of the Axis of Resistance against the American Axis of Evil.”
In their words, they said the attack was for “the brave and honorable resistance fighters in Palestine, Lebanon, Yemen, and Iraq, as well as the righteous martyrs on the path to Jerusalem (al-Quds).”
