Israeli hacking group broke into sites of Izz al-Din al-Qassam, the terrorists military wing, and some leftist movements. Hacked websites were defaced and previous information replaced with words of Israeli national anthem. Currently the website of Izz al-Din al-Qassam displays a white screen and words in Arabic announcing technical difficulties.
The hacker group, which calls itself Fanat al-Radical (the fanatical radicals), also said that it broke into additional terror organizations’ sites and those of various leftist movements. According to this group unnamed representative, they searched for relevant sites, whether leftist or anti-Zionist, and looked for loopholes. The group consists of young adults from 16 to 18 years of age.
In addition to the Hamas military wing’s site, they also broke into the Balad political party site (http://arabs48.com/balad), that of the Hagada Hasmalit (the left bank, http://www.hagada.org.il), the Kibush (occupation, kibush.co.il) site and more. The Left Bank site, considered by the group as another site identifying with the left, was defaced “due to its blatant anti-Zionist contents”. The hacked sites are now equipped with an Israeli flag, the words of the Israeli national anthem “Hatikva” with vowels and pictures of Palestinian babies and children dressed as suicide bombers. A short explanation of why this specific site was broken into to begin with is also included.
Fanat al-Radical is a new group of hackers whose members were members of another group called Kamikaz Team. According to them, since they didn’t want to include politics in Kamikaz, a parallel group that supports the destruction of Arab sites was created. The group feels that its first hacking campaign was successful, but they do not intend on stopping here. They said that they plan an additional attack in the future.
