-#Jerusalem Post Site Hacked On Anniversary Of Killing Of #Soleimani
The website for the Israeli newspaper Jerusalem Post was down for a short while early on Monday morning after it was targeted by #hackers. The content of the page was inaccessible. Instead, visitors saw a picture of an exploding building with a #rocket falling from the #sky, appearing to come from a red ring on a clenched fist.
The image was accompanied by a threatening message in #English and #Hebrew, saying: “We are close to you where you do not think about it.”
“We are aware of the apparent hacking of our website, alongside a direct threat to Israel,” the English language newspaper wrote on Twitter. “We are working to resolve the issue and thank readers for your patience and understanding.”
The paper later restored its website. It mentioned how #Tehran-supporting hackers previously targeted its page in 2020 “with an illustration of Tel Aviv burning as then-#PrimeMinister #BenjaminNetanyahu swam” with a life preserver.
The hacking occurred on the anniversary of the killing of dead-#terrorist #IRGC general #QassemSoleimani in Iraq two years ago. Israel first publicly acknowledged its involvement in the killing of Soleimani in late December.
-Tehran #Space Launch Fails To Put #Payloads Into #Orbit
Tehran’s space launch on Thursday failed to put its three payloads into orbit after the rocket was unable to reach the required speed, a defence ministry spokesman said in remarks carried on state television on Friday.
The attempted launch, which came as indirect #US-#Iran talks take place in Austria to try to salvage a 2015 #nucleardeal, drew criticism from the United States, Germany and France.
Westerners call on the Islamic Republic not to launch further #ballisticmissiles designed to be capable of carrying #nuclearweapons, including #spacelaunchers.”

The Institute of Capacity Building for Political Studies (ICBPS) – as a sister organization of ICBHR, registered in the U.S. – is an English language #Media outlet and “speakers’ bureau.” The ultimate goal will be to make the Network a most authoritative and in-depth source of information on Iran and Iran-related matters. The ICBPS is not only a media outlet covering all aspects of Iranian politics, #HumanRights, #Culture, #Arts, etc. but also promotes the most knowledgeable people on the topic and helps direct audience attention to the most reliable and influential voices covering Iran.
The urgency for the #ICBPS is due in large part to a lack of credible or accurate information about Iran, in the broader news media at the moment.
