The banks decision was made as a precautionary measure to protect clients' information and accounts.

According to Haartez, Israeli hackers have disclosed details of approximately 4,800 credit cards from different accounts held in Saudi Arabia. In addition to this, they have also revealed card numbers, passwords, security codes, code types, and expiration dates.

Last Monday, both the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (TASE) and El Al’s respective websites were hacked and shut down, causing severe problems. By 10 A.M., TASE's website was only partially functioning, while El Al’s website did not function at all.
