Iranian hackers penetrated a major Israeli security organization to steal and subsequently publish surveillance footage that captured one of Wednesday’s twin bombings in Jerusalem.

While most details remain under gag order, Israeli authorities cleared for publication on Thursday that the footage was genuine and was acquired by the Moses Staff group in what amounted to a significant security breach.

“Dark life: You will pay for the blood that has been shed. You will not have peace and comfort in the occupied territories of Palestine. We will determine your end. In addition, we formatted the hard drive of the cameras for you!” the group wrote on Thursday in a Twitter post in Farsi that contained a video with excerpts of the stolen footage.

“You don’t see peace anymore,” it added in both English and Hebrew.

The Iranian group originally said it had hacked police cameras, a claim Israeli officials denied.

According to reports, Moses Staff several months ago released footage from police cameras placed across Jerusalem and in Tel Aviv.

Last year, the group published data allegedly stolen from the Israeli Defense Ministry that contained sensitive information about IDF soldiers.

Sixteen-year-old Aryeh Shechopek was killed and more than 20 others wounded on Wednesday in two explosions at bus stops located near entrances to Jerusalem.

Authorities believe there were two remotely detonated bombs packed with nails to cause maximum damage.

Police described the explosives as “high quality” and suggested an organized terror cell planned and carried out the attack.


Who will tell the truth about Israel in 2023?

Few things are certainties in a fast-changing world.

But there’s little doubt that the rising tide of antisemitism and demonization of Israel will continue to worsen in the upcoming year.

A publication that you can trust to supply you with accurate information as well as the sort of analysis and opinion that puts it all in perspective is absolutely vital.

JNS is an oasis of truth.
