Israel responds to cyber-attack with air strike

Israel Defense Forces targeted the building where Hamas cyber operatives work, says IDF.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) claim to have thwarted a cyber-attack from Hamas by targeting the building where Hamas cyber operatives work, according to IDF.

After the alleged cyber-attack, IDF responded with a physical attack in what Forbes contributor Kate O’Flaherty called “a world first.”

According to the commander of the IDF’s cyber division, identified only by his rank and first Hebrew letter of his name, Brigadier General Dalet, this was also the first time that Israel cyber forces had to fend off an attack while they were also under fire, which required both Israeli technology soldiers and the Israeli Air Force, according to The Times of Israel.
