The source of classified intelligence shared by President Donald Trump with Russian government officials in May was acquired by Israel in a hacking operation against Islamic State computers, The New York Times reported Monday.

The report, which cites a unnamed U.S. official, says Israeli “cyberoperators” infiltrated an Islamic State terror cell of bomb-makers in Syria several months ago. The information obtained by the Israeli hackers enabled the U.S. to determine the Islamic State terrorists were developing explosives that could bypass airport security in a laptop battery, according to the report.
