The website of the Yisrael Beiteinu political party was hacked on Saturday by pro-Palestinian activists.

The hackers placed on the front page of the website a picture of a Palestinian flag with the Egyptian pyramids in the background and wrote a message referring to party leader Avigdor Lieberman.

"In response to the extremism of Lieberman, the Israel Beiteinu site has been breached - this is the party of the criminal Avigdor Lieberman, the foreign minister of the Zionist entity," the hackers wrote.

In response to the hacking, Yisrael Beiteinu's director general Faina Kirschenbaum said: "Those who are behind this act of vandalism are supporters of Palestinian terrorism and now it is clear that they are trying to terrorize the internet. Yisrael Beiteinu will continue to clearly and firmly sound its voice and positions at every opportunity in the future."
