Operation Israel is an operation which we see each year. The operation which is often led by Islamic hackers targets Israeli domains and companies which use outdated software and web applications.

The hackers which support Operation Israel 2015 (opisrael 2015) are capable of penetrating web applications like Drupal, Joomla and WordPress but there is a small faction in the Operation Israel hacking team which is capable of performing advanced attacks on specified targets.
Last year the AnonGhost hacking team used Remote Access Trojans to gain access to devices of victims which visited defaced Israeli websites (opisrael 2014). This allowed the AnonGhost team to build an botnet of infected devices. The infected devices can be used by AnonGhost to perform attacks on Israeli domains and networks.
The hackers which deface the targeted Israeli domains often upload an Arabic song and they often display direct messages for pro-Israeli visitors. The AnonGhost has been defacing websites for a couple of years and recently they have been using the pictures of the 3 slaughtered Muslims. The AnonGhost team has been attacking Western universities and domains since a couple of weeks.

The AnonGhost team also published the list of domains which they can directly access via the hacked Ohio State university server:
