JPost and “Maariv” become a target of pro-Iranian hackers
Early in the morning, January 3, pro-Iranian hackers attacked the account of the Maariv newspaper on Twitter and the Jerusalem Post website.
The attackers posted a photo of the explosion of the Dimona nuclear facility with text in Hebrew and English: “We’ll end you when you don’t think about it.”
The photo also showed a ballistic missile falling from the fist of Qasem Suleimani, who was eliminated exactly two years ago in Baghdad in 2020.
