Syrian activist groups Anonymous and RevoluSec have hacked into the official websites of seven Syrian cities and a number of government departments, Al Jazeera reported on Monday.

The hackers put caricatures of Syrian President Bashar Assad on some of the sites and warned the public of government monitoring. On other sites, they placed an "interactive map of Syria showing data on those killed in the government's crackdown after protests began in March, putting the death toll at 2,316," according to the report.

A member of RevoluSec told Al Jazeera that, "First and foremost, this operation is about the people of Syria and our full support for them as they fight for freedom from oppression."
