A Knesset spokesperson says the parliament thwarted attempted cyber attacks during Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s video address to lawmakers that were aimed at disrupting the video feed and taking it offline.

The Knesset does not specify who was behind the attempted attacks, but says they were blocked by its information security unit with the help of the Israel National Cyber Directorate.
