Turkish hackers have targeted Israeli sites over the past several days and succeeded in defacing a number of sites on Thursday, including the official website of the Tel Aviv municipality. The online attacks were launched in revenge for a clash between IDF soldiers and passengers on a Gaza-bound ship that left several Turkish citizens dead.
While no official data exists, reports indicate that hundreds of Israeli sites have been affected by the hackers’ attacks. Most of the sites damaged by hackers were relatively small. The hackers’ attempts to deface larger sites, including government web pages and media outlets, were not successful.
