Instead of displaying a main news page, the
website showed an illustration that appeared to recall top Iranian general
Qassem Soleimani, who was assassinated in a US drone strike in Iraq on this day
The illustration showed a bullet-shaped object
shooting out of a red ring worn on a finger, an apparent reference to a
distinctive ring Soleimani used to wear.
The Jerusalem Post, an English-language daily,
tweeted that it was working to resolve the issue.
“We are aware of the apparent hacking of
our website, alongside a direct threat (to) Israel,” it said.
Its mobile app did not appear to be affected,
and other major Israeli news websites were working normally.
