Hackers Attribute False News to “Al-Manar” on Fake Twitter Account
Local Editor

The Fabricated Twitter account in the name of Al-Manar TVOne of the fabricated pages on Twitter social network website continues to post false news under Al-Manar signature, which could ignite a crisis between Iran and Kuwait.

It is an act of hacking that Al-Manar faces on Twitter, the disinformation which started two months ago, has been boosted by fabricated news, but of regional dimension this time.

This fake Twitter account posted false statements on behalf of Al-Manar, which caused confusion in the Islamic Republic, Kuwait and Syria, the preferred material of disinformation.

Attention: @almanartv Is a Fake Account“After what happened two months ago, one of the parties has created a false account of Al-Manar on the social network site of Twitter under the name of Almanar TV. It has adopted the same design that we adopt as a channel,” said Wael Karaki, Programs Department Manager at Al-Manar website.

“Thus, we decided to put a notice for all our followers at Al-Manar official page: Attention: @almanartv is a fake account,” Karaki added.

social networks' icons on Al-Manar official website“Anyone who wants to follow Al-Manar news on Twitter should make sure that the name of the official Al-Manar page is @almanarnews, and not @almanartv. It is preferable that he clicks on the Twitter icon found on Al-Manar official homepage,” he said.

Those who fabricated this page have artfully posted a series of correct news, along with some false news that provoke sedition, and far from Al-Manar policy and its mission.

Abdullah Qassir, General Manager of Al-Manar Channel“It is clear that Israel and the United States are dealing with Al-Manar as a channel hostile to the Israeli occupation and the American imperialism and hegemony in the region, and thus it became a target for the Americans and the Israelis. They fought against Al-Manar television on the internet and on smart phones as well. It is a part of the soft war launched against us,” said Abdullah Qassir, General Manager of Al-Manar Channel.

“I believe that attacking Al-Manar website and creating false accounts under the name of Al-Manar is not the whole war. It is only a part of the war, which will be complemented only by posting what the fabricated account is reporting on other mass media, like the Kuwaiti agency.”

Again, Al-Manar cautions that this is its official website, and it bears no responsibility towards any news out of this page and its related social network websites.
