Israeli Website Hacked With Direct Threat To Israel Nuclear Site

An unknown hacker group on early Monday defaced the website of the Israeli English Language Newspaper, Jerusalem Post with an image threatening an Israeli Nuclear Facility.

“We are aware of the apparent hacking of our website, alongside a direct threat to Israel,” Jerusalem Post confirmed in a tweet message.

“We are working to resolve the issue and thank readers for your patience and understanding,” Jerusalem Post added without giving further details.

Though there is no claim of responsibility from any group, the image posted included a slogan that read “we are close to you where you do not think about it,” with showing a missile coming down from a fist bearing a ring long associated with Qassem Soleimani, the Iranian general that was killed by the US drone strike in Iraq two years ago in the same day (Monday).

The image also included an exploding target from a recent Iranian military drill designed to look like the Shimon Peres Negev Nuclear Research Center near the city of Dimona.
