In response, pro-Palestinian hackers tampered with several India-based websites as a protest against the Israeli occupation.

The latest round come one day after Israeli hackers brought down the websites of both the Saudi Stock Exchange (Tadawul) and the Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange (ADX).The hackers were able to paralyze the Tadawul website, while causing significant delays to the ADX exchange site.

The Saudi authorities, in a statement issued Wednesday, denied the claims, stating that sophisticated security protection was being enforced.
