In a brilliant stroke of hacktavism, they appear to have taken control of all the official government web sites in the major cities of Syria and replaced their respective home pages with this interactive map of Syria comprised of all 2,316 martyrs that have been slaughtered by the Assad government since March. If true, this is a huge cyber blow against the bloody tyranny of the Assad regime, which has barred all foreign reporters from entering the country and continues to claim that “armed gangs” and drug dealers are responsible for all the murders. When you run your mouse over the map, up pops the name of the dead, the date they were killed and city where it happened. Click on the map above and check for yourself.
