Israeli hackers paralyze Iranian websites

JERUSALEM (JWN and agencies)–A group of Israeli computer hackers, who call themselves the “IDF Team”, penetrated three Iranian websites on Thursday and inserted images of Israeli flags and anti-Iranian messages in English.

The three targets were Iran’s Press TV website and two websites belonging to the Islamic Republic’s Ministry of Health and Medical Education. Press TV, the Iranian regime’s English-language satellite channel, was out of service following the hackers’ assault.

“At 16:30 Israel Clock the Iranian Ministry of Health and Medical Education website will be down until further notice. In addition to Iran’s television network, broadcasting in English round-the-clock, based in Tehran that [is] called Press TV will be down until further notice,” the hackers wrote in a message.

“Ahmadinejad, what do you have to say about that?” they added.
