Hamas interrupts Israeli TV with an important message

Network intrusion; Unauthorized use of system administrator privileges

A Channel 10 satellite broadcast was briefly hacked by the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas on Monday.

During the compromise, the second most popular commercial channel in Israel flashed images
of wounded Gazans and the message: "Your government chose the time to launch this campaign. Your government will not agree to our terms, so prepare yourselves for an extended stay in the bomb shelters,” the Jerusalem Post reports.

Hamas has hacked Israel’s news channels previously, but this was the first time viewers complained.
