Members of the Syrian Electronic Army today breached and defaced the Web site for Turkey’sInterior Ministry (h/t Softpedia).

The hackers defaced a subdomain of the site with a statement reading, “Rise against the injustice of Erdogan’s Tyranny,” and published 96 e-mail addresses and clear text passwords online.

Earlier today, the hackers also breached the Turkish prime minister’s Web site in cooperation with Anonymous, and published prime minister Recep Tayyip Ergodan’s e-mail address, along with 67 e-mail addresses and clear text passwords.

In a related press release, Anonymous stated, “Anonymous continues to watch the Gezi Resistance very closely. Anonymous will always look for Turkish people and all the citizens of the world who are sick and tired of oppression. One day freedom of speech will be like air and water and on that day Anonymous will suddenly cease to exist. Until that day, it is safe to expect Anonymous.”
