The pro-Assad Syrian Electronic Army computer hackers group took responsibility on Thursday night for the hacking the IDF Spokesperson's English-language Twitter account and tweeting a false warning of a nuclear leak at the Dimona nuclear facility after a rocket strike.

The group took to its own Twitter, posting its claim along with a screen shot of the fraudulent tweet.

"The whole 'Israeli army' propaganda was hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army," read a tweet on the hacktivists account.
