A 17-year-old from the Arab village of Kfar Karah, in Wadi Ara, was arrested overnight Monday on suspicion of hacking into and sabotaging thousands of Web sites, police said. The suspect allegedly wrecked sites belonging to the Likud Party, Maccabi Tel Aviv, shopping sites and sites uses as servers by various other companies. The Northern District Police Fraud Squad is set to request a five-day remand extension for the suspected hacker. Police described the alleged offenses as "Internet terror," accusing the teen of working with several associates from Turkey and Saudi Arabia to specifically ruin Israeli Web sites. As yet, it is unclear if government sites were affected.
