WASHINGTON — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Wikipedia page was replaced with a large Palestinian flag on Tuesday afternoon.
The edit looks to have been made by a Wikipedia user called TSKAero1 on Tuesday.
The user has edited other Wikipedia articles about Israel and about the current conflict in Gaza, where the Israeli military has launched a ground offensive in response to rocket fire from the militant group Hamas. For example, TSKAero1 edited an article about the Israel Defense Forces to describe the Israeli military as “the bunch of people randomly and unrepentantly murdering innocent Palestinian civilians. Their ass is protected by the United States of America, (Nazi) Germany and France who supply them with military equipment.”
TSKAero1 also edited parts of the article “Lists of accidents and incidents involving commercial aircraft.”
