Anonymous warns Israel against continued bombing of Gaza

Anonymous threatens action against Israeli government for shutting down internet in the Gaza strip.


Web Desk November 15, 2012

As Israel's campaign in Gaza showed no signs of abating, hacktivist group Anonymous threatened to take action against Israeli government for shutting down internet and telecommunication in the narrow strip, according to a press release issued by Anonymous Operation Israel.

The release stated, “For far too 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 Defence Force.”

Anonymous alluded to the events that transpired in Egypt by saying, “As the former dictator of Egypt Mubarack learned the hard way - we are ANONYMOUS and NO ONE shuts down the Internet on our watch.”

The Anonymous group has vowed to assist the people of Gaza in case of a telecommunication disconnect and have created a 'care package' which contains instructions in Arabic and English on how to stay connected to the internet even in the event the government cuts lines of communication off.

“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,” stated the press release.

The Israeli military had on Wednesday kicked off its latest military operation by killing Hamas' top commander followed by what Palestinians said were at least 60 Israeli air strikes.

Hospitals and medical centres across Gaza were put on high alert, as death tolls continue to rise.

@Itzchak Yeah right and the Tsahal isn't. Must feel pretty good rolling into Gaza in a Merkava or perhaps the next time the Palestinians demonstrate against illegal settlements, you should send in Sayaret Matkal to show them who is boss, just like you sent in S13 to commandeer the Mavi Marmara and then hold a press conference about how Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East and a becon of hope for the world. I bet the Tsahal spokesperson will say it with a straight face as well :)
