Opponents of the Israeli onslaught on the besieged Gaza Strip are waging their own war against Tel Aviv in the cyberspace, hacking social media accounts belonging to Israeli Deputy Prime Minister Silvan Shalom.


A pro-Palestinian hacker group called ZCompany Hacking Crew (ZHC) claimed responsibility for hacking Shalom’s Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and YouTube accounts on Wednesday.

They have posted pro-Palestinian and anti-Israeli messages under the name of the Israeli vice premier.

ZHC claimed it had also hacked Shalom’s email and extracted his personal emails, saying they plan to release the private documents very soon.

The full-scale cyber attack on Shalom comes just days after another online hacktivist group Anonymous attacked websites in Israel, posting pro-Palestinian messages on them or knocking them offline.

The Israeli prime minister’s official website, as well as 700 other Israeli websites, including those of the Israeli Ministry for Military Affairs and the Bank of al-Quds (Jerusalem), were hacked in the wave of cyber attacks also confirmed by Tel Aviv.

Anonymous leaked the personal information of 5,000 Israeli figures, while many of the hacked sites are still down.
