Pro-Palestinian hackers brought down Haaretz’s Hebrew website on Wednesday, after several Israeli websites were targeted earlier in the day.
The website was brought down in a distributed denial-of-service attack, as a cyber war between pro-Israeli and pro-Palestinian hackers continued.
In a Twitter message, Anonymous Palestine claimed responsibility for the attack: “haaretz.co.il Tango Down :)”.
Earlier Wednesday, hackers attacked the websites of two Israeli hospitals, managing to bring down the sites for several hours.
According to the Sheba Medical Center, Tel Hashomer, the Mossad identified multiple attempts to break into the hospital’s website, similar to previous cyber attacks on websites of important Israeli institutions.
