TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) - Israel's prime minister says there has been a "significant rise" in cyber-attacks on Israel by Iran.

Benjamin Netanyahu told a security conference on Sunday that Iran, along with its proxies Hezbollah and Hamas, are targeting Israel's "essential systems." He said the water system, electric grid, trains and banks have all been targeted.

Netanyahu gave no further details, and his office refused to elaborate.

Israeli officials have long said that the country is under constant attack by enemies and ideological opponents to shut down vital websites. Most attacks have had little impact.

Israel, a world leader in cyber security, is widely suspected of launching sophisticated attacks on its enemies, including Iran.
