AnonGhost left their deface page along with a pro-Palestinian message on hacked domain which was expressed in following words: 

  • Hi Israel! We always here to punish you as we did on the last Operation 7 April and we are back again to celebrate it. Because we are the voice of Palestine and we will not remain silent!! Muslims are everywhere – We will enter Palestine soon :) Remember this: D. Alkhilafah is coming soon Insha’Allah.
