“We are still unable to say forensically, but analytically I believe it was carried out by the Zionist Regime, the Americans and their agents,” Gholamreza Jalali, head of civil defence which is in charge of cyber security, told state TV in an interview.

President Ebrahim Raisi said this week that the cyberattack, which disrupted the sale of heavily subsidised gasoline, was designed to create “disorder”.

This is not the first time Iran has accused the U.S. and Israel of cyberattacks.

Jalali said that, based on completed investigations, Iran was “certain” that the United States and Israel were behind the cyberattacks on Iran’s railroads in July and the Shahid Rajaee Port in May 2020.

Iran’s train services were delayed in July by apparent cyberattacks, with hackers posting the phone number of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s office as the number to call for information.
