The monitors that usually display arrival and departure times showed messages calling against the Iranian regime’s involvement in the Middle East.

Hackers took control over display monitors at the Mashhad International Airport in Iran on Thursday and aired anti-government images and slogans.

Though the airport regained control over the electronic boards within a few minutes, people who were present at the airport managed to upload pictures of the hacked screens onto social media.

Replacing the arrival and departure times were messages calling on the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps to exit Gaza, Lebanon and Syria and stop “wasting Iranians lives and financial resources.”
