Iran on full alert to protect oil facilities from possible attacks

Iran’s oil minister, Bijan Namdar Zangeneh, has ordered his country’s energy sector to raise its alert levels against cyber and military attacks that could target the oil industry, APA reports citing TASS.

Zanganeh’s remarks came in a statement yesterday on the occasion of the National Day of Fire Safety.

The minister pointed out that the oil sector is the main source of income and power in the country, stressing that the “economic war” being waged against his country aimed at harming Iran’s oil capabilities.

Zangeneh stressed the need to take all managerial, technical and operational measures to protect Iran’s oil facilities.
