A hospital in the North was a target of pro-Hamas computer hackers who on Wednesday morning put anti-Israel messages and photos on the official Web site of Hadera's Hillel Yaffe Medical Center. The hacking of the Web site, at http://.hy.health.gov.il, was quickly detected by the site manager and brought back to normal within a short time. Hospital director-general Dr. Meir Oren said in reaction that "this is a shameful attempt, which adds nothing [to the enemy's cause] but only shows that they use any means to attack Israeli humanitarian organizations like hospitals, even virtually." Among the photos on the hacked site was that of the fresh grave of an Israeli soldier who died in Gaza, entitled - in Hebrew - "The fate of your soldiers." It also included images of Hamas's armed wing, Izzadim Kassam, saying, to whom "Allah will give victory." Another image showed an armed IDF soldier running with the caption: "Cowards on the ground."
