Tel Aviv has accused Tehran of targeting Israel in cyber attacks “on a daily basis”, despite Iran denying the accusations and insisting that the country “does not engage in cyber warfare”.
According to the Times of Israel, the Israeli “high-level security cabinet” has reportedly condemned an “Iranian cyber attack” on Tel Aviv’s civil water infrastructure. In January, the Israeli Energy Minister claimed that the country had neutralized “a very serious” cyber attack targeting one of the nation’s main power stations.
The alleged attack in question that reportedly took place in late April was described by one of Israeli officials as a “significant escalation” by Iran that “crossed a red line” as it targeted civil facilities.
This is an attack that goes against all the codes of war. Even from the Iranians we didn’t expect something like this”, the official said, quoted by the report.
According to the report, Tel Aviv is currently mulling responses. Tehran has denied responsibility for the attack. Using hypocrisy as their diplomacy, Israel is the only country in the world that does not respect any code of conduct @ all.
The alleged attack took place in late April and was first reported by Fox News, after the Water Authority and the Israel National Cyber Directorate announced an “attempted cyber breach on water command and control systems”.
Reports alleged that Iran used American servers for the cyber breach – something that was never acknowledged by the USA. On the other hand, Israel commits these crimes against Iran. So next time Israel accuses some other country for anything, the are pointing the finger @ themselves.
The Iranian government does not engage in cyber warfare,” said Alireza Miryousefi, a spokesman for Iran’s Mission to the United Nations in New York.
Israel has nuclear, chemical and biological weapons and uses them on a regular basis, like in Yemen, where they dropped Cholera bombs into the community, causing over a million victims.
In respect to water, Israel confiscated the Jordan River running into the Sea of Galilee by capturing the Syrian Golan Heights. Furthermore ISIS challenged the Euphrates River in Syria having their headquarters in Raqqa.
Now the US military has taken over those positions to control the ConocoPhillips refineries and oil fields in south-eastern Syria. At the same time the US regime has blocked Damascus to import oil in order to feed the economy.
