JERUSALEM - Israel will temporarily suspend some of its government websites' international traffic to fend off a potential mass-cyber attack by pro-Palestinian hackers, an Israeli security source said on Thursday, without elaborating on the threat.

The precautionary measure would be in place from Friday through Monday, the source said, and include refusal of electronic payment from abroad for government services.
