Study Description

This study focuses on a particular context of conflict where Cyber-warfare has been used intensely and very frequently. The conventional war launched between the Israeli state and the Lebanese Shiite Party, Hezbollah, during the summer of 2006, was the scene of one of the most important acts of a wider virtual conflict, the Arab-Israeli Cyber-war, which started with the second Palestinian Intifada in 2000. The so-called “July War” has continued since 2006, and is being transposed from a conventional warfare context to a “permanent and ongoing Cyber-war”, in terms of online information control and manipulation as well as repeated attempts to take technical control of official or influential Websites.
