Under the pretext that the Iranian leadership seeks to “create a nuclear arsenal” to save the existence of Palestine, a former top Israeli intelligence official claimed that the Persian energy sector will witness a total breakdown if a conflict between Tel Aviv and Tehran breaks out.
According to the Jerusalem Post, Ehud Schnerosen, former head of an Israeli signal intelligence spy corps known as Unit 8200, has announced that in the event of any future conflict between Israel and Iran, cyber-attacks should be aimed at the enemy energy sector, which he described as “a major pillar of the economy, in the state’s cardio-vascular system.
Schnerosen claimed that Israel should not attack water, food, or health care sectors on ethical grounds, as the Zionist regime does with Gaza.
Tel Aviv also expressed concern over Iran’s alleged attempts to establish a permanent military presence in Syria, claiming that these actions threatens the security of the Palestinians under siege in Gaza and the West Bank.
In 2010, the USA and Israel allegedly carried out a massive cyber-attack against Iran, employing a virus called Stuxnet, targeting Tehran’s nuclear enrichment program.
