IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Sept 18, IRNA -- Iran will reciprocate cyber attack by the United States or its allies, head of the Operations Department of the Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier-General Ali Shadmani said on Wednesday.

He made the remarks in an interview with IRNA.

The official noted that any cyber attack against Tehran would be risky for the US and its allies.

Cyber warfare refers to hacking to conduct sabotage and espionage.

He said that enemies of the Islamic Republic of Iran tried all their means in different economic, cultural, social, military and security fields in the past three decades to deal a blow to the Islamic Revolution, but to no avail.

Shadmani said that all anti-revolutionary terrorist organizations, active against Islamic Republic are formed and financed by US, UK and Tel Aviv regime.

He stated that the Pjak and MKO terrorist groups have been weakened and are getting ready to disarm after latest developments in the region including Iraq and in light of decisive operations of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps against Pjak on the border areas.

In the cyber war, military activities that use computers and satellites for coordination are at risk of equipment disruption. Orders and communications can be intercepted or replaced. Power, water, fuel, communications, and transportation infrastructure all may be vulnerable to disruption.
