The Qatar Radio's website was hacked on Tuesday, the station announced on its Twitter account.
Following the cyber attack at about 5.30 am, the hackers posted some fake news and insulting words on the site. The IT team at the Radio was able to restore the website and delete the fake comments, a source said. 
On June 8, Qatar TV website had to be shut down for some time after hackers targeted the portal. Both Qatar Radio and Qatar TV are organisations that come under the Qatar Media Corporation.
Meanwhile , some false stories related to Qatar have been published on the Twitter account of Iran’s Arabic-language Al-Alam news network. Reacting to the fake reports, Al-Alam network said that hackers published a piece about the possibility of setting up an 'Iranian' military base in Qatar. Although the network said that its Twitter account had been hacked, official Saudi Al Ekhbariya channel and other Saudi news agencies and websites raced to air and publish the fake news. 
On June 8, the websites and digital platforms of Al Jazeera Media Network had come under systematic and continual hacking attempts. However, the platforms were not compromised.
The hacking of Qatar Radio's website comes close on the heels of a report in The Washington Post on July 16 that said the UAE orchestrated the hacking of Qatar News Agency's website in late May.
The hackers had planted a false story with incendiary quotes attributed to His Highness the Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani on May 24, shortly after a lengthy meeting between US President Donald Trump and Gulf leaders in Saudi Arabia.
Quoting unnamed US intelligence officials, the paper said senior members of the Emirati government discussed the plan on May 23. But the officials said it was unclear if the UAE hacked the website or paid for them to be carried out, the newspaper said.
HE Sheikh Saif bin Ahmed al-Thani, Director of Government Communications Office, said: "Qatar has long maintained that its government news agency website was hacked on May 24 and fabricated quotes published. The information published in the Washington Post on July 16, 2017, which revealed the involvement of the UAE and senior Emirati officials in the hacking of Qatar News Agency, unequivocally proves that this hacking crime took place."
The UAE denied any role in the hacking of the QNA website.
Responding to the denial, the CEO of Qatar Media Corporation Sheikh Abdulrahman bin Hamad al-Thani said US intelligence agencies (CIA and FBI) have declined to comment on the Washington Post’s report and this proved without doubt the involvement of the UAE in the hacking of QNA.
On June 5, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Egypt cut ties with Qatar, accusing it of financing terrorism, a charge that Doha denies. Saudi Arabia and its allies imposed sanctions on Doha including closing its only land border, denying Qatar access to their airspace and ordering their citizens back from the country.
