Defense Minister Naftali Bennett’s Twitter account was hacked on Saturday and released three tweets that had pro-Turkish and pro-Palestinian messages.
The first tweet read “Mehmet Akif Ersoy,” who is a Turkish poet. Accompanying the message was an image of a Turkish flag.
The second tweet, which also had a Turkish flag, read, “So flap and wave like the dawning sky, oh glorious crescent, So that our every last drop of blood may finally be worthy! Neither you nor my nation shall ever be extinguished! For freedom is the absolute right of my ever-free flag; For freedom.”
The third tweet of the hack read “Freedom for Palestine...” and was accompanied with an image of the Palestinian flag.
Channel 10 correspondent Or Heller tweeted screenshots of the tweets, which were removed shortly after they were posted. Heller reported that Bennett’s staff said the hacking only took place for a few minutes.
