Anonymous take down 44 Israeli Government sites in retaliation to killing of 14 year old Orwah Hammad

#OpOrwahHammad : The hacktivist group Anonymous take down 44  Israeli government websites

The hackers collective Anonymous today took down 44 Israeli government websites in retaliation for the killing of 14 year old American citizen Orwah Hammad. Orwah Hammad was killed in a shooting incident by the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF). IDF on its part alleged that Orwah was about to throw a firebomb towards Route 60 during a protest.

The Palestinian protestors and Orwah’s family member have a different story to tell.  They say that Orwah was holding a burning Israeli flag and that IDF troops shot him because of this incident.  Orwah who was 14 year old teen was a American citizen and born in New Orleans.


The paste on Pastebin site posted by a ‘Guest’ today states as below :
