After the approval from US president Donald Trump, American forces have carried out cyberattack against the Iranian Revolutionary Guards. The Washington Post reported citing informed sources, the attack on Thursday night was for computer systems used by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) used to launch and control rockets.

The IRGC had shot down an American surveillance drone with a ground-to-air missile on the night of Thursday. Trump had one prepared for Friday backlash according to his words, stopped a few minutes before its execution. The US Department of Defense had proposed the cyberattack after America accused the IRGC of attacking two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman in the middle of the month. The attack on computer systems had been prepared for weeks or even months.

The paper went on to say that the cyberattack by the ​​Command of the US Armed Forces had paralyzed military control systems of the Revolutionary Guards in Iran, but had not resulted in casualties. Trump had stopped a conventional attack on Iran scheduled for last Friday for disproving the Iranian casualties, which he feared were 150 fatalities, compared with firing an unmanned aerial vehicle.

The Washington Post reported that the US Department of Homeland Security warned industry officials and authorities on Saturday that Iran had stepped up its cyber attacks on key industries such as the power sector. Iran has the potential to disrupt or destroy computer systems through cyberattack.

President Donald Trump has now announced additional sanctions against Iran. However, according to him, military action remains an option on the table. Secretary of state Mike Pompeo signaled readiness for talks with the Iran. If Iran wants to renounce violence and engage with United States diplomatic efforts, “he knows how to reach us,” a statement by Pompeo said.
