Fox News' White House correspondent Jacqui Heinrich reported that the State Department was hit by a cyber attack in "a possible serious breach," per notifications from the Department of Defense Cyber Command. The breach is at present "believed to have happened a couple of weeks ago" per the notification.

A source familiar with the incident told Fox News that ongoing State Department operations to evacuate Americans, Afghan interpreters, and other critical personnel "have not been affected."

In a statement responding to these revelations, a State Department spokesperson said, per Heinrich: "The Department takes seriously its responsibility to safeguard its information and continuously takes steps to ensure information is protected. For security reasons, we are not in a position to discuss the nature or scope of any alleged cybersecurity incidents at this time."

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
