Iran to increase passive defense capacities: commander

TEHRAN, Dec. 10 (Xinhua) — Head of Iran’s Passive Defense Organization said Monday that the Islamic republic must make fundamental changes in its cyber infrastructure to increase the country’s passive defense capabilities, Press TV reported.

Brigadier General Gholam-Reza Jalali said that Iran is “under threat” from its enemies in three important areas, including ” military, economy and cyberspace,” according to the report.

Referring to “all-out economic and cyber war” against the Islamic republic, Jalali said that Iran’s passive defense has had an active and important role in the face of these threats.
