Israeli government websites down: Israeli media
Israeli media reports that all Israeli government websites have been affected by a blackout, and users said they were unable to access the websites.
A blackout has affected all websites of the Israeli government, causing users to lose access to the cabinet's pages, Israeli media reported Monday.
Users reported that they were unable to load the Israeli websites, Israeli media added, noting that even the occupation's ministers were unable to log onto the websites.
"The reason behind the blackout is unknown," Israeli media suggested, noting that investigations were ongoing to determine the cause of the massive wave of 404s.
The occupation's media also revealed that Prime Minister Bennett left a cabinet meeting for over two hours, and his office did not respond to a request for comment.
"A cyberattack has paralyzed all Israeli government websites, and, according to estimations, Iranian hackers are behind the attack," Israeli media claimed.
The cyberattacks prompted "Tel Aviv" to put its National Cyber Directorate on high alert.
Israeli media also quoted an Israeli security source as saying this cyberattack was the biggest against the Israeli infrastructure, while other sources reported that following the "exceptional cyber attack," the Israeli came into the picture.
An Israeli security official admitted, according to Al Mayadeen's correspondent, that the cyberattack had affected several Israeli government websites, including the websites of the premier, the ministry of justice, the ministry of internal affairs, the ministry of health, and the ministry of trade.
