Hacker collective Anonymous announced Friday night that it targeted a number of Israeli websites, including that of the Kadima party and the Tel Aviv Municipality. The attacks appeared to be connected to Israel's Operation Pillar of Defense, targeting terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip.

The Kadima website was inaccessible at the time of this report, the possible outcome of a dedicated denial of service attack (DDoS). The website for Bank Jerusalem was also inaccessible.

The Tel Aviv Municipality website, which Anonymous declared "down," appeared to be functioning normally. A fourth website, sharonet.co.il, was "defaced" by anonymous, leaving a night-vision themed image reading "Hacked by Anonymous Squad No. 035".
