Netanyahu: Iran Behind Cyber Attacks on Israel

(Jerusalem Post) Tovah Lazaroff - Iran is behind cyber attacks against Israel, including during this summer's Gaza conflict, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday. During the war Hamas, a terror group backed by Iran, fought Israel in cyber space by attempting to attack the country's Internet infrastructure, Netanyahu said. "There is an Iron Dome of cyber security that parallels the Iron Dome against the rockets. This allows us the operating space to continue fighting, to continue with daily life in Israel." He also noted: "ISIS [Islam State] and Hamas and al-Qaeda and al-Nusra and Boko Haram and Hizbullah, supported by Iran - they're branches of the same poisonous tree."
