Ali Shamkhani, two-star Iranian general and Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council of Iran, tweeted in Hebrew on Thursday that Iran had “foiled the enemy’s plans” regarding Tuesday’s cyber attack.
“The wise methods of October 2021 have revealed the hastiness of October 2019,” he added in reference to a US cyber attack on Iran following the drone attack on Saudi oil facilities, which Washington and Riyadh blamed on Tehran.
Although the front line of passive defense was disabled by a cyber attack, the back line thwarted the enemy’s goal of rioting in Iran through coordinated and timely action by the executive, security and communications agencies. Intelligent management in October 2021 revealed the recklessness of October 2019

Iran’s state news agency IRNA reported on Tuesday that some 4,300 gas stations across the country had been disabled by a cyberattack, a week after it had carried out a complex and coordinated strike on US forces in Syria using up to five armed drones to attack the Tanf garrison at a key strategic point near the Jordan-Iraq border.
The gas stations began to operate regularly again on Wednesday, according to Iranian media.
