A  group of hackers named ‘Qademoun’ started on Monday a new round of extensive cyber attacks against a number of Israeli websites.

A statement released on Qademoun’s Facebook page said that the cyber attacks were launched to be the second round of al-Imad operations that started on the first day of the 9th anniversary of the Israeli war on Lebanon in 2006.

“On the second day of al-Imad operations, the martyr Abbas al-Moussavi unit hacked a number of Israeli tourism websites,” it said on Tuesday.

The statement listed the names of the websites as:

luxuriousisrael.com
reginatours.com
visitcyprus.co.il
hike.mytreks.co.il
www.mimtarim.com
www.seatoseatrail.com
support.shield-lock.co.il
wiki.cloud-guardian.com

Speaking to several media outlets, a spokesman for Qademoun, aka Mujahid, said that “this list of sites forms joins the E-war initiated by Qademoun against the Israeli enemy, which will move the battles to the cyberspace to integrate with the war on the ground.”

“The second round of the operation included hacking around 2000 military, services, economic, social and individual Israeli websites,” he added.

“The seven Qademoun groups launched sporadic DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks against the sites in question in line with hacking elite websites specialized in providing Israeli tourism services around the world,” Mujahid elaborated.

“We want to send a threatening letter to the settlers in the usurper entity.”

About choosing the 10th of August to launch the attacks, Mujahid said: “This day is symbolic and we wanted the enemy to start the week with electronic horror.”

“We chose this day to be a special memory of eliminating the myth of their [Israeli] Merkava tanks in the Hujayr valley on August 12, 2006, and we named Martyr Ali Saleh to be the commander of disrupting their websites as well. ”

Asked about Qademoun’s relationship with Hezbollah, Mujahid said: “We are brothers of each resistance fighter, in Hezbollah, Hamas, the Islamic Jihad, the Popular Front, the Popular Resistance in the Golan Heights and all the resistance factions in our region, and we consider ourselves members of them and we are ready to provide our expertise.”

Qademoun groups of the martyrs Abbas al-Mousawi, Ali Saleh (Merkava Defeater), Mahmoud Qoueiq, Shadi Abbas, Fadi Abbas, Haj Hassan Laqqis, Haj Ghaleb Awali, Haj Imad Moughneih, and Sheikh Ragheb Harb, launched the DDOS attacks, causing the disruption of 1,850 Israeli websites.

In May 2013, the Syrian Electronic Army (SEA) also launched a successful cyber attack on the main infrastructure system of Haifa, one of the most important ports in the occupied territories, disrupting the operation of the servers in charge of urban management systems and public utilities in the city.

The SEA said it had hacked into the Haifa infrastructural system in retaliation for the Israeli strike on a research center in suburban Damascus at the time.

The SEA warned that it could cause a major blast by continuing the attack on the servers of the Haifa infrastructural systems, but avoided further move due to inescapable human casualties.
