A group claiming to be hackers from Iran has hacked a United State of America's (USA) government agency's website and defaced it with pledges of revenge over assassination of Iran's military commander Qassem Soleimani by the US on Friday, January 3.
The website of the Federal Depository Library Program was hacked and a graphical image with a picture of a bloodied President Donald Trump receiving a blow from a fist posted.
The graphic image shared by various international news outlets showed missiles being fired to Trump from Iran. The hackers vowed to revenge killing of Soleimani who they called a martyr.
"Severe revenge awaits those criminals who tainted their filthy hands with his ( Soleimani) blood and the blood of other martyrs of last night's ( Friday, January 3) incident," the message on the graphical image read.
The statement also claimed the Islamic State of Iran will continue supporting middle-East states such as Iraq, Yemen and Palestine.
The Iran's military leader who was considered the second most powerful dignitary was executed in an airstrike ordered by the US president who claimed Soleimani had planned imminent attacks on the US.
Trump said the Iranian leader was responsible for the deaths of millions of people in the world.
His assassination saw heightened tensions between the middle-East and the West.
Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei announced 'harsh revenge' to the assassins as he declared three days of national mourning for Soleimani.
