The attack was carried out under the banner of Operation Save Al-Aqsa, referring to the mosque in East Jerusalem which is the third holiest site in Islam but which has been the centre of rising tensions in recent weeks with protests erupting over Jewish visitors to the site and worries over a possible change which would allow Jews to pray at the flashpoint location.
While many associate AnonGhost with the larger Anonymous movement, the founder of the group – known as Mauritania Attacker Admin (MAA) – is eager to disassociate his group from Anonymous.“We don’t have any relationship with Anonymous. AnonGhost is different from Anonymous, we don’t have the same goal and don’t have the same level in hacking,” MAA told IBTimes UK
