Haaretz websites in both Hebrew and English have been experiencing technical difficulties most of the day Thursday due to an attack by hackers from abroad.

The attack has caused all kinds of disruptions and malfunctions to the site, and specifically to our homepage. Many readers have also been prevented from viewing the site.

Please excuse our appearance and we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. Stay tuned to our Twitter feed for updates. We hope the problem will be solved shortly.
