Only days before we had predicted that the Gaza-Israel war would lead to a real and present danger on the cyber world.  As AnonGhost hacked Israeli news paper Haaretz and some other grouping DDoSed Israeli ISP, yesterday the hackers collective, Anonymous claimed to have brought down 10 Egyptian Government websites in solidarity with the Israeli- Hamas Gaza war victims.
#OpEgypt by Anonymous in solidarity with Gaza, 10 Egyptian government websites hacked
In a Pastebin Paste, the Anonymous announced the website names as follows :

https://www.isdf.gov.eg/indexx.htm
https://mop.gov.eg/index.htm 
https://www.nrea.gov.eg/index.htm 
https://www.25jan.gov.eg/index.htm 
https://www.moic.gov.eg/index.htm 
https://rspa.gov.eg/index.htm 
https://rta.gov.eg/index.htm  
https://www.moh.gov.eg/index.htm 
https://www.scp.gov.eg/index.htm  
https://mopic.gov.eg/index.htm 

Though it is not known why hackers have targeted Egyptian websites as Egypt is trying for a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas to end the bloody Israel – Gaza conflict, it is perceived by some elements in the world that Egyptian President has a pro Israel bias and that may be the reason by the Anonymous have targeted Egypt.
