More than 100,000 Israeli websites have come under attack from Anonymous hacktivists around the world. Speaking to RT, a Middle East hacker explained the aims of the cyber assault on Israel’s online presence.
A cyber attack by the activist group Anonymous targeting Israeli government websites in solidarity with Palestinians has failed to cause serious disruption, officials have said.

Anonymous had warned they would launch a massive attack on Israeli sites in a strike they called #OpIsrael starting on April 7, 2013.
