Fuel distribution systems were fully operational in Iranian cities on Tuesday, a week after cyberattacks on Iranian state networks paralyzed gas stations in various parts of the country.
Last week, there were reports of cyberattacks on Iran’s state-owned fuel distribution networks, which many Iranians are forced to rely on due to the spread of subsidies due to economic problems in the country.
This paralyzed the work of gas stations in different parts of Iran. The cyberattacks were also confirmed by the Supreme National Security Council of Iran.
Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi said the cyberattack was aimed at creating unrest in the country.
Later, the head of the Iranian Civil Defense Organization, Golamreza Jalili, who oversees the country’s cybersecurity, accused the US and Israel of carrying out the cyber attack.
Iran has been subjected to cyberattacks several times in the past. In 2019, amid rising fuel prices, massive protests were held in more than 100 cities in Iran.
