Breaking: US disappointed at military action, targeting Iran’s infrastructures: General
Head of Iran’s Passive Defense Organization warned of American attacks on the country’s “vital infrastructures” after its failure to deal with the Islamic Republic militarily.
According to Tasnim news agency, in comments on the sidelines of a power outage drill on Saturday, Brigadier General Gholam Reza Jalali said Iran’s great defense and deterrent power has disappointed the enemy’s plan for military action.
After becoming frustrated with military moves against Iran, particularly following the shooting down of a super-advanced American spy drone over the Persian Gulf last year, the Americans have sought a war on Iran’s vital infrastructures, he warned.
The commander also noted that the hostile cyberattacks are more common and frequent, because the attacker is anonymous in such modern warfare.
The vital infrastructures of Iran have become growingly oriented towards cyberspace with the rapid pace of development, Jalali said, adding that protection of such infrastructural mechanisms requires strong cyber defense and compliance with passive defense regulations.
In comments in October 2018, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei highlighted the important role of Iran’s Passive Defense Organization in countering enemies’ threats and urged all military and non-military sectors to closely cooperate with the organization.
The Leader stressed the need for Iranian officials in all sectors to pay heed to the importance of passive defense, saying if they fail to understand the importance of this issue and the passive defense does not develop properly, the country will be exposed to threats with irrecoverable effects.
