A Hamas Web site was taken offline earlier this week by a group of Israeli hackers.

"The Jerusalem Post reported that the hackers, known as the 'IDF Team,' first sent an email to the Nashirnet Web-hosting company in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, asking it to remove www.qassam.ps, a Palestinian site run by Hamas' Izzadin al-Qassam Brigades terrorist force," writes SecurityNewsDaily's Matt Liebowitz. "The site 'often displays content celebrating rocket fire on Israeli civilians from Gaza,' Yaakov Lappin from the Jerusalem Post wrote."

"Nashirnet denied the IDF Team's request, and the hackers followed by taking down the site themselves," Liebowitz writes.
