The Israeli military has set plans to bolster its cyber-warfare abilities and expand its Unit 8200, Israeli media report.
The Israeli army faces a dire shortage of cyber warrior and the Tel Aviv regime is seeking to recruit more computer hackers from all over the world to develop a whole arsenal of cyber weapons.
The military officials are tasked to track “young computer geniuses” and persuade them to immigrate to Israel for lucrative positions and become cyber warriors.
Moreover, the Israeli military intelligence is slated to invest two billion shekels (525 million dollars) for the purpose in the coming years.
The Israeli regime and the United States are accused of launching cyber attacks on many countries across the Middle East and North Africa.
In 2009, a malware known as Stuxnet was used in the first cyber attack that targeted Iran’s nuclear facilities, followed by the malware “Flame” that attacked the Islamic Republic’s oil industry.
Also on December 9, 2011, US and Israeli hackers attacked Iran’s Press TV Website after the network broadcast footage of the US RQ-170 Sentinel stealth aircraft, an advanced US spy drone which was captured by the Iranian military for violating the country’s airspace.
