Tehran (IP) - Intelligent management of Iran thwarted the enemies' plot to bring the country to their intended gas riot, said the secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC).

Iran PressIran News: Following a cyber attack to the gas stations in Iran on Tuesday, a governmental system managing fuel subsidies was shut down throughout the country.

Rear Admiral Ali Shamkhani wrote in a Wednesday tweet: "Although, front line of passive defense was inactivated by a cyber attack, the back line thwarted enemy's goal of rioting in #Iran through coordinated & timely action of the executive, security & media agencies."

Shamkhani then made the enemies beware of the fact that: "Intelligent management in October 2021 revealed recklessness of October 2019."

The problem caused difficulties for gas stations, and their activities were temporarily suspended but soon the process of refueling at gas stations returned to normal.

No further information has been released from which country and how the attack was carried out. 

Iran's Petroleum Minister announced on Wednesday that the refueling process was up and running in 3,000 gas stations throughout the country.
