Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, at Sunday's weekly cabinet meeting, addressed the global cyber attack that has affected nearly 100 countries across the world. Netanyahu stated that Israeli "critical infrastructure" remained entirely unharmed but that "everything could change".

The prime minister highlighted recent Israeli efforts to combat the "new threat" of cyber attacks, including the establishment of Israel's National Cyber Bureau, and stressed the importance of investing "further resources in order to protect the State of Israel" from this new form of attack.
