The Turkish Jewish community’s main news website has been targeted in an antisemitic hack attack.
The home page of the Salom website was reportedly taken down by a group called “IBDA-Cyber Front”.
The hackers displayed the flag of the Palestinian Authority alongside a child with a slingshot, and sent a message that read: “Our actions will continue until Palestine is free and independent!”
Avlaremosis, a Turkish website monitoring antisemitism, said: “It is obvious that the attack carried out will fuel the hatred of the Jews in Turkish society.”
Earlier this week, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan drew American ire after publicly promoting an antisemitic trope.
