Not sure if this is true

But I saw it in the Swedish press and then found it here.

Israel on Tuesday hacked into the television station of Hizbullah,
emblazoning images on the screen showing pictures of corpses and claiming the
group's leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah was a liar.

Israel also hacked into FM radio stations and instead of normal programs a two-minute recording was repeatedly broadcast.

"Hassan sent men to fight the Israeli army, an army of steel, without preparing them. Stop listening to patriotic hymns for a moment, reflect and bring your feet back to the ground," said the Arabic message.

Israel has used a variety of technological weapons to wage a psychological war in Lebanon, also sending text messages to mobile phones and voice messages saying its war was against Hizbullah and not the Lebanese people.(AFP)

Don't know why I think it's interesting. In the context of the civilian casualties on both sides, it seems so mild.

The text messages and voice messages remind me of all that pre-election calling we get.
