Egyptian hackers hacked into Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's website and the official Israel Radio webpage on Sunday, according to an International Middle East Media Center report.

The hackers loaded a picture from the Yom Kippur War of Egyptian soldiers in Sinai raising their country's flag on the prime minister's homepage.

According to the report, the hacker wrote "Anti-Zionism" and “Egypt is the greatest civilization, established more than 7000 years ago, but the terrorist state of Israel stole the Palestinian lands, and killed children” on the website.

The official Israel Radio webpage was also hacked on Sunday, reported the Media Center as well as Egyptian newspaper Al-Masry Al-Youm, minutes after an Egyptian man climbed 21 stories to replace the Israeli flag on its embassy in Cairo with the Egyptian one.
