Anonymous launches #opIsrael bringing down more than 40 “Israeli” sites warn against cutting the Internet in Gaza
IF you are following the news you probably heard about the Israeli barbaric and terrorist attack against Gaza which killed 15 people so far including Hamas’ military leader Ahmed Al-Jaabari. Hamas and other mujahdeen organizations retaliated, and Israel is now considering a ground invasion into Gaza. This comes at time where Israeli elections will be held as it seems Israeli prime minister is trying to win votes by killing people in Gaza.
Other news surfaced that Israel might cut off Internet and communications into Gaza. As a result Anonymous the hacker group which takes upon it self justice causes around the world commenced operation Israel #opIsrael to protect Gaza citizens access to the Internet. The result of the operation in the last 4 hours is brining down more than 40 Israeli websites as per Anonymous press.
AnonIRC is saying that “ We are getting reports from within Gaza that the internet–at least in some areas–is no longer accessible.”
The group released the following statement:
For far to long, Anonymous has stood by with the rest of the world and watched in despair the barbaric, brutal and despicable treatment of the Palestinian people in the so called “Occupied Territories” by the Israel Defense Force. Like so many around the globe, we have felt helpless in the face of such implacable evil. And today’s insane attack and threatened invasion of Gaza was more of the same.
But when the government of Israel publicly threatened to sever all Internet and other telecommunications into and out of Gaza they crossed a line in the sand. As the former dictator of Egypt Mubarack learned the hard way – we are ANONYMOUS and NO ONE shuts down the Internet on our watch. To the IDF and government of Israel we issue you this warning only once. Do NOT shut down the Internet into the “Occupied Territories”, and cease and desist from your terror upon the innocent people of Palestine or you will know the full and unbridled wrath of Anonymous. And like all the other evil governments that have faced our rage, you will NOT survive it unscathed.
To the people of Gaza and the “Occupied Territories”, know that Anonymous stands with you in this fight. We will do everything in our power to hinder the evil forces of the IDF arrayed against you. We will use all our resources to make certain you stay connected to the Internet and remain able to transmit your experiences to the world. As a start, we have put together the Anonymous Gaza Care Package which contains instructions in Arabic and English that can aid you in the event the Israel government makes good on it’s threat to attempt to sever your Internet connection. It also contains useful information on evading IDF surveillance, and some basic first aid and other useful information. We will continue to expand and improve this document in the coming days, and we will transmit it to you by every means at our disposal. We encourage you to download this package, and to share it with your fellow Palestinians to the best of your ability.
We will be with you. No matter how dark it may seem, no matter how alone and abandoned you may feel – know that tens of thousands of us in Anonymous are with you and working tirelessly around the clock to bring you every aid and assistance that we can.
We Are Anonymous
We Are Everywhere
We Are Legion
We Do Not Forgive
