Brigadier General Gholam-Reza Jalali told IRNA on Sunday that the drill is meant to assess the readiness of Iranian organizations and departments to prevent future cyber intrusions.

The remarks come amid reports that the Israeli military is planning a major cyber war against Iran by setting up a military cyber command.

The new cyber command, which has been described as central to the “defense capability” of the Israeli regime, will directly report to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The Israeli command center, supported by the military, has reportedly conducted a series of "soft" espionage missions, including hacking into Iran's version of Facebook and other social networking sites.

A source with close knowledge of Israel's cyber war preparations said that Tel Aviv has two principal cyber targets, namely stopping Tehran's nuclear program and its civil infrastructure.

Iran's Minister of Communications and Information Technology Reza Taqipour said on August 10 that the Islamic Republic has taken appropriate countermeasures, including the establishment of a cyber command, to control and foil cyber attacks targeting the Islamic Republic.
