Several Iranian Web sites were taken down by hackers yesterday, including the sites for Press TV and Iran's Ministry of Health and Medical Education.

"According to the Jerusalem Post, Israeli hackers belonging to a group known as 'IDF Team' claimed responsibility for the digital infiltration, saying the operation was executed in retaliation for a massive assault against Israeli websites on Wednesday," writes TG Daily's Trent Nouveau.

"'At 16:30 Israel [time] the Iranian Ministry of Health and Medical Education website will be down until further notice,' the hackers wrote in an online communiqué," Nouveau writes.
