The pro-Palestine hackers from AnonGhost are known for their hacks against Israel and other high-profile websites to spread free Palestine messages.

The famous hacktivist group AnonGhost hacked and defaced the official website of United Nations designated for the Kingdom of Jordan, leaving a message in support of free Palestine.

In an exclusive conversation, one of the hackers from AnonGhost told HackRead that reason for targeting UN website was UN itself because they aren’t doing much in order to stop Israel’s war crimes against Palestinians and bring peace in the region. 

Hackers left a deface page along with a message on the hacked UN website yesterday. The message was left with following content:
