Conservative Iranian Ayatollah Ahmad Alamolhoda, custodian of the holy shrine in Mashhad, confirmed Saudi reports on Friday that Iran successfully hacked the telephones of Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu’s “family,” according to Radio Farda.
“In the past few days, Iran’s cyber-attacks have resulted in hacking the mobile telephone of a candidate in Israeli elections and access to all the information,” said Alamolhoda, adding that Iran has hacked the telephones of Netanyahu’s family members.
The Saudi-based news website Independent Arabic first published the report about the hacking of Sara and Yair’s telephones early last week.
This comes only a week after Benny Gantz and Ehud Barak’s phones were compromised by hackers. Ironically, as reported on GreaterLakewood, Netanyahu said at the time “He couldn’t protect his phone, how can he protect the country?” However, immediately following the report, its authenticity was denied by both the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) and the prime minister.
