Tel Aviv [Israel], April 4 (HBTV): Israel's National Cyber Directorate has warned of an increase in attacks ahead of the Iranian Jerusalem Day that will be celebrated this Friday, April 5.  

The directorate said that this year, against the background of the "Iron Swords" war against Hamas in Gaza, the hostile discourse on the Internet increased and had called for cyber-attacks against the Israeli organisations and people. 

The threat from Iran is being organized under the hashtag #OpJerusalem, planned for April 5, and #OpIsrael, planned for April 7, which call on people from around the world to attack Israel on these days.

The directorate predicts that there may be an increase in attacks on websites, attacks that disrupt services and the spread of false information.  

The Iranian Jerusalem Day takes place every year in the month of Ramadan and is characterized by demonstrations throughout Iran, the Palestinian Authority as well as anti-Israel offensive activity in cyberspace.  

Every year during this period, attacks are identified, often less sophisticated and of the type that is easier to carry out on a wide scale, such as defacing websites, taking over smart home systems, distributing text messages containing phishing messages, hacking into social networks, infiltrating company databases and information leaks, alongside publications that boast of attacks that did not necessarily occur.
