Iranian Fars News Agency claims cyberattack on a company involved in the construction of Tel Aviv metro

Iran’s Fars News Agency reported that a massive cyberattack hit operating systems and servers of the Tel Aviv Metro.

Iran’s Fars News Agency reported on Monday that operating systems and servers of the Tel Aviv Metro were hit by a massive cyberattack.

The rail system is still under construction and according to The Jerusalem Post, the infrastructure is the subject of a political debate in Israel.

The Fars agency later reported that the attack hit one of the companies involved in the construction of Tel Aviv Metro.

Sabareen, a militant Palestinian group, claimed the attack through its Telegram channel.

However, the diffusion of news of the attack could be part of propaganda against Israel, according to local media.

“Iran will often launder rumors online to try to make them appear to be reality. At other times, it uses this method to disseminate information it wants communicated to the public.” states The Jerusalem Post.

The Fars agency later reported that the attack hit one of the companies involved in the construction of Tel Aviv Metro.

“This was the “second time that the government websites and servers of the Zionist regime have been targeted by cyberattacks from Iraq,” the report said. “The latest attack of this type dates back to the end of last June.”

According to Sabareen’s Telegram channel, the Iraqi hacker group Al-Tahera targeted the Israeli digital intelligence agency.
