An Algerian hacker using the handle “Ismail-man54” said that thousands of Arab and Muslim hackers opposed to Israel participated in the recent attack on 90 Israeli websites. He also said that the attack had been planned since November 2012, with the goal of wiping Israel off the electronic map.

He confirmed that “the campaign will continue until this goal is achieved,” adding, “the files that were obtained after the hacking were sent to the security service affiliated with the dismissed Palestinian government in Gaza.”

Concerning the all-out cyber war on Israeli sites, Ismail told Asharq Al-Awsat that he was “one of the first people who called for this campaign and one of the key participants in it.” Ismail showed Asharq Al-Awsat a video, which he posted on YouTube on November 16, 2012, in which he called for “preparing for the launch of an electronic campaign against Israel.”

He said that he had “discussed the idea with hackers from Saudi Arabia, and that it was prepared for through [their] communication online.”
