The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) is in the process of creating a new Cyber Command that will be integrated with the existing C4i Directorate and be responsible for all defensive cyber operations and intelligence gathering, a senior IDF cyber official stated on 14 May.

In a departure from plans announced in 2015 by IDF chief of staff Lieutenant General Gadi Eizenkot to unify all cyber capabilities under a single command, Unit 8200, the Military Intelligence Directorate's signals intelligence unit, will not be integrated into the new command.

"We showed him [Lt Gen Eizenkot] what this [unification] would entail, and gave him an alternative, which resulted in a slower progress forward," the senior IDF cyber official said.
