WikiLeaks say they have suffered a “sustained attack” after announcing the upcoming release of hundreds of thousands of documents relating to Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party (AKP).
The organization suggests that the Turkish government might be behind attack
On Twitter, Wikileaks said: “Our infrastructure is under sustained attack…We are unsure of the true origin of the attack. The timing suggests a Turkish state power faction or its allies.”
Despite the attack, the famous whistleblowing site promised to “prevail & publish” the first batch of documents on Tuesday. Earlier WikiLeaks announced that the release of documents, which could expose the Turkish “political power structure”, will contain 300,000 emails and 500,000 documents.
The non-profit organization also asked the public to support their endeavor for sharing the information.
“We ask that Turks are ready with censorship bypassing systems such as TorBrowser and uTorrent. And that everyone else is ready to help them bypass censorship and push our links through the censorship to come.”
