Israel Releases Another Gaza Pinpoint Strike Video, Anonymous Retaliates By Taking Down IDF Blog
by Tyler Durden
In what is becoming an increasingly more confusing conflict – is it truly an ideological war, or merely an extended attempt to generate empathy via social networking, together with a full-blown conflict on twitter – Israel continued its pinpoint strikes in Gaza overnight, taking out the house of a high-ranking Hamas operative, together with the release of commemorative video showing the explosion moments after the event. The clip is below. What is more curious is that the global hacker group Anonymous has already picked its side, and yesterday launched a massive attack named #OpIsrael, which has so far hacked 700 Israeli websites. From RT: “The hackers reportedly took down websites ranging from high-profile governmental structures such as the Foreign Ministry to local tourism companies’ pages. The biggest attack as of now has been the Israeli Foreign Ministry’s international development program, titled Mashav. Anonymous announced on Twitter they’ve hacked into the program’s database, with the website remaining inaccessible at the moment.” And most notably, Anonymous also took down the primary nexus used by Israel’s to boast about its military exploits: the blog of the Israel Defense Forces, which has been down for half a day now.
