Iran Says It Uncovered ‘Massive Cyber Attack’ Against Nuclear Facilities

Iran’s Intelligence Minister Hojatoleslam Heydar Moslehi said today in Tehran that his ministry has uncovered a planned “massive cyber attack” against the country’s nuclear facilities.

“Based on obtained information, America and the Zionist regime (Israel) along with the MI6 planned an operation to launch a massive cyber attack against Iran's facilities following the meeting between Iran and the P5+1 in Moscow," Moslehi said. “They still seek to carry out the plan, but we have taken necessary measures," he added, without elaborating [IRNA/Press TV, 21 June].

The Washington Post had reported on Tuesday that the US and Israel had jointly developed a sophisticated computer virus nicknamed Flame that collected intelligence in preparation for cyber-sabotage aimed at slowing Iran’s ability to develop a nuclear weapon.

Any world's Zonist warmongers of the U.S., its master, Israel, and Britain's cowardly acts of cyber attack against IRAN's nuclear facilities is doomed to failure.
