Israel destroys building in Hamas which resorted to cyber warfare tactics
The Israel Defence Forces (IDF) launched an attack on Hamas retaliating to a cyber attack on Sunday. This cyber warfare tactics was immediately met with military retaliation unlike the US which in 2015 had planned a drone strike to kill the British national in charge of ISIL’s hacker groups Junaid Hussain who had dumped personal details of US military forces online. The forces hit the building in the Gaza Strip with an airstrike after ensuring the site had been used by Hamas cyber Operatives to attack Israel’s cyber space.
The IDF tweeted on the microblogging website, “We thwarted an attempted Hamas cyber offensive against Israeli targets. Following our successful cyber defensive operation, we targeted a building where the Hamas cyber operatives work. HamasCyberHQ.exe has been removed.”
It may be noted that the cyber warfare is gaining even more momentum in today’s world.
