Israeli military identifies cyberspace as key battlefield, hints of offensive action By The Associated Press

JERUSALEM (AP) ' Israel's military says it has identified cyberspace as a strategic battlefield and is prepared to go on the offensive.

The military's website reported this week that that the army has defined its "operational methods" in cyberspace.

It said the military has "relentlessly" defended its cyberspace. "Additionally, if necessary, the cyberspace will be used to execute attacks and intelligence operations," it said.



Israel is known as a world leader in electronic warfare. The article said the military is incorporating cyber warfare activity "in completing objectives at all fronts." It also talked of future "clandestine" activity.

The article was published days after experts identified a computer virus that appeared to target Iran's nuclear program. Outside experts speculated that Israel was involved in the attack ' a charge it neither confirms nor denies.
