The Libyan Foreign Minister Najla Al-Mangoush said Thursday her Twitter account was hacked after the account of the Foreign Ministry had been hacked and later restored.
Al-Mangoush said in a Twitter statement that the Twitter accounts had been restored after they were hacked and posted false information in a stream of efforts using "dishonest and personal attacks to undermine the Ministry's credibility".
She also said she is still in her post as Foreign Minister and ordered the start of investigation into the incident and took measures to stop such issues in the future. She vowed to hold the ones responsible for it accountable.
Al-Mangoush Twitter account posted a thread criticizing Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah for transferring Abu Agila Masud to US custody, saying the move didn't represent the Ministry's vision and an inhumane act. She also called in the thread on the Attorney General to probe the abduction of Abu Agila Masud.
Hokoometna platform of the Government of National Unity said a number of Libyan social media accounts and websites had been attacked, according to the Libyan Post Telecommunications and Information Technology Company.
