The website of the Ministry of Health was attacked by hackers on Sunday and, as a result, was not available to users from abroad, though users from Israel were able to continue to access it.

The Ministry of Health said, "About an hour ago, the website of the Ministry of Health was hacked in an unusual attack. The site is not available intermittently from abroad, but it is available to users from Israel. The issue is being handled by the ministry."

In the wake of the attack on the website, it is not possible for returnees from abroad to Israel to fill out an "entry form to Israel" as required.

The airlines have been updated about the malfunction and have been instructed to allow travelers to Israel to board a flight upon presentation of a flight ticket and without this form.
