Iran hacks Israel’s Jerusalem Post website on the anniversary of General Qasem Soleimani’s assassination by Mossad

Israel’s internet has been invaded by Iranian-backed hackers.

The Jerusalem Post newspaper in Israel announced on Monday, January 3, that its website had been hacked, posing an apparent threat to the country.

Instead of a major news page, the hackers displayed an illustration that purported to remind Israelis of top Iranian general Qasem Soleimani, who was slain in Iraq on this day in 2020 by a Donald Trump-ordered drone attack.

The webpage picture depicted a bullet-shaped thing firing out of a crimson ring on a finger, which appeared to be a reference to a characteristic ring worn by Soleimani when alive.

The Jerusalem Post, a well-known English-language daily news website, said it was attempting to rectify the problem.

“We are aware of the apparent hacking of our website, alongside a direct threat (to) Israel,” it said.


The mobile app of the Jerusalem Post did not appear to be affected, and other major Israeli news websites were working normally as at press time.


Iran and Israel are eternal enemies and in recent months Israel has warned Iranians that all options are on the table if the Islamic nation doesn’t curb its nuclear program.
