Abdulrahman al-Kharraz, a senior member of the Kuwaiti committee against the Gaza blockage also endorsed the cyber attacks on Israel: "The Saudi hacker's electronic jihad reminds me of Yahya Ayyash," he said, referring to the infamous Hamas bomb maker, who was killed in 1996.


"0xOmar doesn’t hack to steal, but rather to humiliate and shatter the theory of Zionist superiority," al-Kharraz explained.
