Internet hacktivist group Anonymous has declared cyberwar on Israel, posting personal data of five thousand Israeli officials online.

It has come to our attention that the Israeli government has ignored repeated warnings about the abuse of human rights, shutting down the internet in Israel and mistreating its own citizens and those of its neighboring countries,” the hackers wrote in a statement.

The document contains names, email addresses and ID numbers apparently belonging to Israeli officials. The group also said “Israeli Gov. this is/will turn into a cyberwar.” Earlier, the group hacked over 700 hundred Israeli websites, including the Bank of Jerusalem, the Israeli Defence Ministry, the IDF blog, the President’s official website and many others.

The Israel’s finance minister has acknowledged the recent wave of attacks, saying the government is now waging a war on a “second front.”
