Israeli hackers hit Hamas Web site


Israeli hackers broke into the Hamas Web site.

The right-wing group of hackers posted Israel’s national anthem on the site of Hamas’ Izz al-Din al-Kassem armed wing, as well on the sites of the Balad Arab-Israeli political party and left-wing organizations.


The hacked home pages also featured photos of Palestinian children dressed as suicide bombers and an explanation of why the site was hacked, according to Ynet. Most of the sites had returned to their regular content within a few hours.


A leader of the hackers told Ynet that the group is comprised of 16- to 18-year-olds and this wasn’t the first time it had hacked into sites that are “leftist or anti-Zionist.” He added that more attacks are on the way.
