As violence between Israel and Palestinian militants of Hamas intensifies, reports have surfaced that a satellite TV hack may have been used to incite further turbulence between the groups. On Tuesday, revealed that Hamas hackers were able to take over programming displayed to a limited number of Israeli viewers using private satellite dishes.

An Israeli broadcasting regulator eventually confirmed with the outlet that “broadcasts were interrupted for several seconds following the hostile takeover [on Monday],” Ynetnews reported.

Attackers reportedly taunted viewers with messages that they should prepare for a “drawn-out stay in bomb shelters.” In response to the incident, the regulator told the aerospace company distributing the broadcasts to up its transmission power, to thwart similar occurrences, Ynetnews said.
