Video posted on Hamas-affiliated web sites by hackers.

Popular Hamas-affiliated web sites were simultaneously hacked, presumably by Israel, on Sunday.

Visitors who logged on to the web pages expecting to see the usual pro-Hamas content were instead treated to a video showing a split-screen of images from both Gaza and Israel.

On one side of the video, one sees “Ramadan in Gaza,” replete with images of destruction and devastation in the Gaza Strip after three weeks of fighting with Israel. The other side of the split-screen is titled “Ramadan in Israel,” where people are seen leisurely enjoying Ramadan meals.

Among the Palestinian sites that were hacked were paltoday.ps, alresalah.ps, and safa.ps.
