Rather than bombing them off the air, IDF psy-ops teams have apparently targeted Hezbollah's al-Manara TV, which generally shows harangues of Hassan (Nasty) Nasrallah and photos of Hezbollah 'victories.' Al Manara TV viewers are getting messages of another kind as well now. Ami Isseroff
Israeli 'hackers' target Hezbollah TV

Caption: "Hezbollah Member - Watch Out"
A series of pictures and statements, apparently from Israeli-backed hackers, have appeared on Lebanon's Hezbollah-run television station, some showing pictures of corpses and others labelling the group's leader, Hassan Nasrallah, as a liar.
One of the images shown on al-Manar television portrayed the body of a fighter lying face-down, wearing khaki trousers with a text in Arabic beneath: "This is the photograph of a body of a member of Hezbollah's special forces."
"Nasrallah lies: it is not us that is hiding our losses," continued the text, which appeared during the evening news and stayed on screen for several minutes.
A photograph of Nasrallah himself also appeared with the legend: "member of Hezbollah: watch out."
Another photograph of corpses was framed by the words: "there are a large number of corpses like this on the ground and Nasrallah is hiding this truth."
Israel also recently hacked into FM radio stations and instead of normal programmes a two-minute recording was repeatedly broadcast.
"Hassan sent men to fight the Israeli army, an army of steel, without preparing them. Stop listening to patriotic hymns for a moment, reflect and bring your feet back to the ground," said the Arabic message.
Israel has reportedly used a variety of technological weapons to add a psychological dimension to its war in Lebanon.
Lebanese mobile phone users have also received text and voice messages saying the Israeli offensive was aimed against Hezbollah and not the Lebanese people.
