‘Ex-Israeli agents’ threatened cyber attack on S Africa

“A group claiming to be former agents of Israel’s Mossad threatened to unleash a devastating cyber attack on South Africa unless its government cracked down on the growing campaign to boycott Israel, according to intelligence documents leaked to Al Jazeera’s Investigative Unit.
According to the reports, then-Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan received a note from ‘unknown sources’ on June 28, 2012, threatening a cyber attack ‘against South Africa’s banking and financial sectors.’ The hand-delivered letter gave the government just 30 days to achieve the ‘discontinuation of the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign and the removal and prosecution of some unidentified individuals linked to BDS’.”
