Someone Replaced Benjamin Netanyahu’s Wikipedia Page With a Huge Palestinian Flag

At around 7:19 p.m. GMT, a vandal sympathetic to the Palestinian cause replaced all of the text on the Wikipedia page for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with a gigantic Palestinian flag.

The user who changed the page is listed as “TSKAero 1” but Wikipedia doesn’t show any other search results for that user. Obviously. It’s doubtful a hacker would leave a trail of breadcrumbs behind.

During the assembling of this post, the following message appeared in the edit history: “(Reverting possible vandalism by TSKAero 1 to version by Brianhe…” Possible vandalism?

UPDATE: The page has been restored to its original text by ClueBot NG.

UPDATE 2: In the edit history, it appears as if someone named GullibleKit tried to revert back to the Palestinian flag.
