The website for the Civil Defense was hacked Tuesday, displaying an image of the Syrian flag and calling for the fair treatment of Syrians in Lebanon, along with a message for Prime Minister Saad Hariri.The incident comes as Lebanese politicians debate whether ties with the Syrian government should be restored, following a recent visit to Damascus by Lebanon's new refugee affairs minister.Hariri told An-Nahar newspaper earlier this month that shaking hands with Syrian President Bashar Assad was one of the hardest moments in his life, saying that it would never happen again.Hariri and his allies have blamed the Rafik Hariri's death on the Syrian regime.Although it was not clear who had hacked the airport's website, the Energy Ministry's website was hacked by a Syrian group condemning the death of Syrian teen Ahmad al-Zoubi.
