Emergency service numbers back online after nearly three-hour outage

Emergency service hotlines 100 for police, 101 for paramedics, and 102 for fire and rescue service are back online following an unspecified outage of about three hours.

During the outage, the hotlines were inactive and callers were asked to dial other numbers to contact emergency services.

The Communications Ministry said the outage was not a cybersecurity attack, in an early morning statement cited by Hebrew media.

Earlier, the Israel Police, the Magen David Adom (MDA) paramedic service, and the National Fire and Rescue Authority said lines were down amid a “temporary error.”
