Fatah hackers brought down Tuesday a website belonging to Izz al-Din al-Qassam, Hamas' military wing, precisely two months after the site was breached by the Israeli Fanat Al Radical group.
"Don't say this is the work of the intelligence services. This is only Fatah youth and the hackers of Palestine," said a message planted on the Hamas site. "Our commander is Abu Mazen (Mahmoud Abbas.) We won't accept anyone but him."
This is not the first time where Fatah hackers breach Hamas-affiliated websites.
"Hello to the guys from Hamas. How's it going? You must be fed up with me," wrote one of the hackers, while boasting his many previous breaches. "I want to congratulate you again…now I added to the list the television of the snakes (the nickname of Hamas TV,) and of course, we shouldn't forget the al-Aqsa Radio. Don't be angry, guys…I promise that you won't rest."
The message was concluded with a photo of Fatah's military wing commander in the Strip, Samih al-Madhoun, who was murdered by Hamas men last year during the group's Gaza Strip coup.
"Even if Samih died, thousands and millions like him shall follow," the message said.
