An official Israeli Defense Force twitter account issued a warning of a possible nuclear leak at the country’s research reactor on Thursday. The Tweet was soon deleted while officials reported a security breach and apologized.
The Syrian Electronic Army has apparently taken credit for the hack, tweeting 'Long live Palestine!' via an IDF spokesperson's account.
In their own twitter account, the hackers said they hacked the “whole ‘Israeli army’ propaganda”, attaching a screenshot to prove their claim.
The tweets were deleted within minutes, but not before dozens of people had already retweeted the two hacked messages.
