Anonymous Takes Down 1,000 Israeli Government and Business Websites

Anonymous Heart Merged With Gaza message

Anonymous has launched a new cyberattack campaign against Israel called #OpSaveGaza, taking down over thousand Israeli websitesAnonHQ

Hacker collective Anonymous has announced that it has taken down over a thousand of crucial Israeli websites in a huge new coordinated cyber-attack called ‪#‎OpSaveGaza‬ on 11 July and 17 July, in support of the people of Palestine.

Some of the websites, such as the Tel Aviv Police Department’s online presence, are still offline two days after the distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, and numerous Israeli government homepages have been replaced by graphics, slogans, and auto-playing audio files made by AnonGhost, the team of hackers who coordinated the attack.

The official Israeli government jobs website has had its homepage replaced by a graphic titled “Akincilar”, which is Turkish for the Ottoman Empire’s troops.

A message written in English and Turkish – presumably by Turkish hackers – and accompanied by pictures of Palestinians suffering says: “The Jerusalem cause is Muslims’ fight of honour” and says that people who fight for Palestine are “on the side of Allah”.

Another Israeli government website now bears an AnonGhost graphic and lists the usernames of 38 hackers.

An audio file that auto-plays when the page loads plays music and a synthesized newsreader clip, together with a message beseeching human rights organisations, hackers and activists to attack Israeli websites to become the “cyber shield, the voice for the forgotten people”.

Many of the websites have since been restored.

The hackers have also leaked lists of Israeli government email addresses obtained by hacking websites of the Ministry of Immigrant Absorption, the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Culture and Sport, the Ministry of Housing and Construction and much more.

Israeli websites belonging to restaurants, local businesses, associations, societies, academic foundations and even a symphony orchestra were also attacked, as well as a subdomain belonging to MSN Israel.

A message on the main Pastebin page and some of the hacked websites reads: “The act of launching rockets from Gaza sector to Israhell is an acceptable and normal reaction against those pigs, it’s called Resistance and not terrorism.

“Israhell never existed its only Palestine, it’s our home. If you are a Hacker, Activist, a Human Right Organisation then hack israel websites and expose to the world their crimes, show to the world how much blood is on their hands, blood of innocent children and women.”

Anonymous has previously run another campaign in April targeting Israeli websites, although on a smaller scale. About 500 websites went offline during the OpIsrael campaign and the hackers released the phone numbers and email addresses of some Israeli officials.

Letter from Gaza by a Norwegian doctor

Mads Frederick Gilbert

Dearest friends,

The last night was extreme. The “ground invasion” of Gaza resulted in scores and carloads with maimed, torn apart, bleeding, shivering, dying – all sorts of injured Palestinians, all ages, all civilians, all innocent. The heroes in the ambulances and in all of Gaza’s hospitals are working 12-24 hour shifts, grey from fatigue and inhuman workloads (without payment all in Shifa for the last 4 months), they care, triage, try to understand the incomprehensible chaos of bodies, sizes, limbs, walking, not walking, breathing, not breathing, bleeding, not bleeding humans. HUMANS!

Now, once more treated like animals by “the most moral army in the world” (sic!). My respect for the wounded is endless, in their contained determination in the midst of pain, agony and shock; my admiration for the staff and volunteers is endless, my closeness to the Palestinian “sumud” gives me strength, although in glimpses I just want to scream, hold someone tight, cry, smell the skin and hair of the warm child, covered in blood, protect ourselves in an endless embrace – but we cannot afford that, nor can they. Ashy grey faces – Oh NO! Not one more load of tens of maimed and bleeding, we still have lakes of blood on the floor in the ER, piles of dripping, blood-soaked bandages to clear out – oh – the cleaners, everywhere, swiftly shovelling the blood and discarded tissues, hair, clothes,cannulas – the leftovers from death – all taken away … to be prepared again, to be repeated all over.

More then 100 cases came to Shifa in the last 24 hrs. Enough for a large well trained hospital with everything, but here – almost nothing: no electricity, water, disposables, drugs, OR-tables, instruments, monitors – all rusted and as if taken from museums of yesterday’s hospitals. But they do not complain, these heroes. They get on with it, like warriors, head on, enormously resolute. And as I write these words to you, alone, on a bed, my tears flow, the warm but useless tears of pain and grief, of anger and fear.

This is not happening! An then, just now, the orchestra of the Israeli war-machine starts its gruesome symphony again, just now: salvos of artillery from the navy boats just down on the shores, the roaring F16, the sickening drones (Arabic ‘Zennanis’, the hummers), and the cluttering Apaches. So much made in and paid by the US. Mr. Obama – do you have a heart? I invite you – spend one night – just one night – with us in Shifa. Disguised as a cleaner, maybe. I am convinced, 100%, it would change history. Nobody with a heart AND power could ever walk away from a night in Shifa without being determined to end the slaughter of the Palestinian people. But the heartless and merciless have done their calculations and planned another “dahyia” onslaught on Gaza.

The rivers of blood will keep running the coming night. I can hear they have tuned their instruments of death. Please. Do what you can. This, THIS cannot continue.

Gaza in darkness amid heavy Israeli shelling 63 killed

Gaza

By Saoirse Bennett

“This could be a LAST message from the bleeding Gaza to all our friends the supporter of Palestine and to whom it may concerns, I’m trying to sum up the whole c…ase as I’m living this ongoing Genocide: Gaza is going into total DARKNESS at this moment as the Zionist fascist government started to cut the electricity supplies and the shortage of power has reached 90%. The heavy artillery shelling which started last night is going more ferocious and brutal, and one can count ten explosions in only five seconds !! all hit civilian districts leaving carnage everywhere. Deaths and and serious injuries toll is rising insanely every single minute with a majority of children murdered as they are being targeted as a priority to the children-killer Israeli military, Please get this out to the whole world although we expect NOTHING to halt that atrocity. Please keep Gaza in your prayers” – Mohammed Abo Omar Photography (East Gaza city) – Jehad Saftawi

Israel launched Operation Protective Edge 11 days ago in what it said was an attempt to halt rocket fire from the Gaza Strip, which had increased in the weeks prior after Israel launched a massive assault against Hamas in the West Bank.

That assault — which left around 10 dead, 130 injured, and 600 Hamas-affiliated individual in Israeli prisons — came in response to the kidnapping and death of three Israeli youth in June, which Israel accused Hamas of involvement in.

Hamas has denied any involvement in the killings, and has instead accused Israel of exploiting the deaths to launch an all out assault on the group, one of the few in Palestine that maintains an armed wing capable of attacking Israel.
