Pro-Israel hackers took down the Saudi Arabian meteorological website Thursday, Army Radio reported.

The hackers left a message on the website saying that "this is only the beginning. What does the Saudi hacker 0xOmar have to say now?" 0xOmar was the hacker responsible for publishing the details of thousands of Israel credit card, the first attack in what has become a cyber war between pro- and anti-Israel activists.

Yesterday, the websites of Tel Hashomer hospital, Israeli website The Marker, Israeli newspaper Haaretz and the Dan bus company were breached. Israeli hackers told The Jerusalem Post that they were planning to respond to the attacks. "We saw that attack. Soon, a response will come,” a member of the IDF Team hacking group said Wednesday evening.
