The websites of the Sheeba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer and the Assouta Medical Center in Tel Aviv were struck with a distributed  denial of service (DDOS), in which servers are flooded by false requests for information, making them unavailable to others.

Also on Wednesday, the Haaretz Hebrew website was downed by pro-Palestinian hackers. Haaretz said it saw a message claiming responsibility for the attack by hackers calling themselves "Anonymous Palestine."

The websites of the financial news site The Marker and the Dan bus company were also unavailable.

Israeli hackers 'IDF Team' told The Jerusalem Post that they are planning to respond to the attacks.
