Gaza Fight Goes Online

Apparent supporters on both sides of the Israeli - Gaza conflict have taken to the internet to extend the fight online. "On 7 January, pro-Palestinian hackers defaced several high-profile websites, including a US Army website, and the Nato Parliamentary Assembly's website." according to the BBC. A battle has also been waged on Facebook where a group using the logo of the Jewish Internet Defence Force (JIDF) removed content from Facebook Groups and replaced it with statements supporting Israeli policy and criticising the Palestinian militant group Hamas. It seems that both sides of the battle are trying to get their messages out by any means possible.
