Israeli hackers took down a website run by Hamas on Tuesday, and warned that the web company which hosted the site will be their next target.

The 'IDF Team' hacker group took responsibility for the attack.

The affected website, www.qasssam.ps, is run by Hamas's Izzadin al-Qassam Brigades terrorist force, and often displays content celebrating rocket fire on Israeli civilians from Gaza.

The website was unavailable after IDF Team said it would take the site offline.

IDF Team added that it had first sent an email to the Nashirnet web hosting company asking them "to remove the Hamas terrorist site. But we got a negative answer."
