Two Israeli TV Channels Were Hacked And Azaan Was Aired (Video)
Some unknown hackers interrupted the transmission of two Israeli channels (Channel 2 and channel 10) and on aired Azaan (Islamic call to prayers). Hackers claim that transmission was abruptly interrupted and to add insult to injury it was done during peak hours. After the Azaan was aired channels' transmissions were halted and some Hebrew words followed on the screen. Channel 2 confirmed the hacking news by uploading the video footage when the azaan was aired. In the foreground photos of various holy mosques were broadcast, including Al-Aqsa mosque. The incident is said to be an act of retaliation against the Israeli government passing a bill which prohibits mosques in Israel from the use of loudspeakers during Azaan. The ban has drawn a lot of criticism for the calls for it to be lifted from across the world.
