And two Israeli newspapers were victims of a hacking attack. And the perpetrators published a picture referring to the Iranian general Soleimani, who was liquidated by the United States exactly two years ago.
“We’re close to what you’d expect at least,” is the accompanying text in both English and Hebrew. The picture shows the explosion of an Israeli nuclear reactor. A missile also appears to be ejected from the ring with a clenched fist finger, which closely resembles Soleimani’s hand, according to the Jerusalem Post, who also wore such a ring.
The photo was published on the website of the Jerusalem Post and on the Twitter page of the daily Maariv. It has not yet claimed responsibility for the hacking attack. The problem was resolved in the morning.

Israel and Iran have been engaged in cyber warfare for years. Tehran accuses Jerusalem of committing a series of hacking attacks and mysterious explosions in public facilities and Iran’s nuclear program. In return, Israel holds Iran responsible for all kinds of hacking attacks on Israeli companies and institutions.
