Israel military twitter account hacked by Syrian Electronic Army

An official Israeli Defense Force twitter account has issued a warning of a possible nuclear leak at the country’s research reactor. The Tweet was soon deleted while officials reported a security breach and apologized.
The Syrian Electronic Army has apparently taken credit for the Thursday hack, tweeting ‘Long live Palestine!’ via an Israeli army spokesperson’s account.
In their own twitter account, the hackers said they hacked the “whole ‘Israeli army’ propaganda”, attaching a screenshot to prove their claim.
The security breach was quickly noticed and rogue tweets deleted by the army, which confirmed that its account had been hacked and apologized to their followers.
The tweets were deleted within minutes, but not before dozens of people had already retweeted the two hacked messages.
A barrage of rockets pounded southern Israel on Thursday. More than ten rockets and mortar shells hit the area in less than an hour, but none came close to the Dimona Nuclear Facility in the Negev Desert, according to Jerusalem Post.
The Twitter hacking comes just days after the Syrian Electronic Army hacked the Israeli army’s official blog. On Sunday, the blog was showing a defaced page, with a message written in Arabic. The Israeli military has not commented on that hacki, according to Cyber News Alerts, who suspects the attack was a spear phishing attack.
