Anonymous has struck again in its ongoing campaign against Israeli forces, this time by releasing thousands of names, ID numbers, email addresses and geographic data allegedly corresponding to Israeli politicians, IDF officers and even Mossad agents.

Dubbed “#OpIsrael” on Twitter, various collectives of the amorphous Anonymous community are targeting official Israeli web domains, evidently causing intermittent disruption to the official website of spy agency Mossad via a self-described “sophisticated DDoS” attack.

The data was released by a hacker team going by the name of “The Red Hack,” a Turkish group, while the direct denial-of-service attack targeted at Mossad was attributed to another group operating under the moniker “Sektor 404.”

RT has viewed the spreadsheets but has not yet been able to verify the legitimacy of the data, which has quickly garnered thousands of views as the documents spread via social media.

Earlier, Anonymous announced a massive cyber-attack on Israel, threatening to erase the Jewish state from the worldwide web. The first ‘OpIsrael’ cyber-attacks were launched by the hacktivist group during Israel’s ‘Pillar of Defense’ operation against Gaza last November.
