"I think one of the purposes of the Hamas was to make people in Israel unconfident and feel bad, and so on - the opposite happened," Eytan said. "All the Israelis came together."

  • What has changed in Israel since the Oct. 7 attacks;
  • How odix is helping businesses and citizens respond to cybersecurity attacks;
  • His view of the ongoing war against terrorist forces.
