Hamas 'hacked Israeli soldiers' phones in honey trap scam'

(MENAFN) Using photos of young women and Hebrew slang, the Palestinian militant group Hamas chatted up dozens of Israeli soldiers online, gaining control of their phone cameras and microphones, the military said on Wednesday.

An officer, who briefed reporters on the alleged scam, said the group that runs the Gaza Strip uncovered no major military secrets in the intelligence-gathering operation.

Hamas spokesmen did not immediately respond to requests by Reuters for comment.

Mainly using Facebook, Hamas used fake online identities and photos of young women, apparently found on the Internet, to lure soldiers in, the officer said.
