The Meretz party website was hacked late Saturday night by a pro-Palestinian cyber hacker under the alias Th3Falcom, with the message "Alquds (Jerusalem) is ours. it will never be yours," and an image of the Temple Mount.

This comes after the recent Jerusalem tensions regarding Temple Mount, reignited by the July 14 terror attack where two border police officers were killed at the site.

The attack sparked a wave of conflict including the installment of metal detectors at Temple Mount, clashes with the police surrounding Friday prayer, and a lethal terror attack Friday night in a West Bank settlement.

Th3Falcom under the username DarkCoder and handle @Th3Falcom on Twitter, bragged about his hack on the Israeli left wing party.

The pro-Palestinian hacker previously tweeted about him successfully hacking 12,000 Israeli e-mails including the Israeli Ministry of Defense on two separate occurrences in April 2016.
