Palestinian Website Puts Out Details of Israel Pilots

A pro-Palestinian website has published the names and photos of 100 Israel Air Force pilots said to be in active duty.

The list appears on the website of the Free Palestine Movement. It also provides dates of birth and identity numbers of the pilots.

The website of the movement states the data were given to it “anonymously” along with a statement that reads in part “They have chosen to harness their skills in the spreading of mass destruction over towns and villages throughout Gaza, the West Bank and Lebanon. State protection renders them immune.”

The statement recommends foreign governments to prosecute of the people on the list for “war crimes… The well-being of Israel is temporary and can be undermined.”

An IDF spokesperson said in an announcement, “This publication, which is full of errors, is another attempt to undermine Israel’s right to defend itself.”

Names and photos of Israel Air Force Pilots are subject to military censorship in Israel.

In parallel moves, the Hezbollah-affiliated news site almoqawama.org was hacked yesterday. It briefly featured pictures of Israeli flags and a text calling Imad Mughniyah a “scumbag.”

Mughniyah, a senior Hezbollah commander, was killed in an explosion in Damascus in 2008.

Earlier this week, an internet group called Remember Emad released what it said was a collection of credit card records, Facebook passwords, images of bank checks and email addresses belonging to Israelis.

The group wrote in a statement that its members had obtained the information by breaking into the computers of Webgate, an Israeli data storage and management firm. “We have terabytes of data from WebGate, but uploading the whole chunk of data on our servers will take time, so we decided to publish them gradually,” the Remember Emad group’s website said.
