A collective of hackers that calls itself Ali’s Justice (Edalat-e Ali) disrupted the transmission of an Iranian State TV and radio station and aired the slogan “Death to Khamenei” asking Iranians to withdraw their money from government banks. The attack took place during the speech of Iranian president Ebrahim Raisi at Azadi Square in Tehran as part of the Revolution Day commemoration, on February 11th, 2023.
The hackers called to action the citizens to protest against the government and invited them to participate in the public demonstration that will be held on February 16th, 2023.
“[Raisi] His live televised speech was interrupted on the internet for about a minute, with a logo appearing on the screen of a group of anti-Iranian government hackers that goes by the name of “Edalate Ali (Justice of Ali). A voice shouted “Death to the Islamic Republic.” reported the Reuters.
Edalat-e Ali is a group of hacktivists that conducted multiple attacks against the government of Teheran.
The protests began after the death of Mahsa Amini from Saqqez in Kurdistan province after her arrest by Iran’s morality police for allegedly wearing her hijab too loosely. The authorities claimed Amini died of natural causes after suffering heart failure while it was at the police station, but citizens don’t believe this is the truth and moved the protests to the streets (September 2022 Iranian protests).
