Bahraini hackers have penetrated into the systems of the US Navy’s Fifth Fleet and gained access to confidential documents.
On Sunday, the hacking group al-Toufan (Flood) Team carried out an operation against the US Fifth Fleet in Bahrain, which is endangering maritime navigation in West Asia.
The group said that it had obtained documents containing pictures and detailed maps from inside the American military base in Bahrain.
It released a small part of the documents, saying, “What we have is greater, and it will reach those [who are] concerned and support … the operations of the Axis of Resistance against the American Axis of Evil.”
The leakage is for “the heroes of the valiant and honorable resistance in Palestine, Lebanon, Yemen and Iraq, and the righteous martyrs … on the road to Jerusalem (al-Quds),” it added.

Tensions have ratcheted up in West Asia due to the United States’ support for Israel’s genocidal war on the Gaza Strip, which has killed at least 28,176 Palestinians, mostly women and children, and injured 67,784 others since October 7.
Resistance groups, in retaliation, have launched attacks on bases housing US occupation forces in Iraq and Syria.
Yemeni armed forces have also launched a pro-Palestine maritime campaign, targeting Israel-bound or affiliated ships, in the southern Red Sea, the Bab al-Mandeb Strait, the Gulf of Aden, and even the Arabian Sea.
In response, the US has conducted illegal strikes on Iraq, Syria, and Yemen. Bahrain is the only Arab country that is supporting the US-led aerial assaults on Yemen.
