Iran executes defence ministry contractor over spying for Central Intelligence Agency

Iran said on Saturday it would respond firmly to any threat against it.

Rashid stressed that if war does come, it would be the fault of "US interventionist policy", and would have disastrous consequences for the entire region.

Tensions spiked this past week after Iran shot down an unmanned USA drone - an incident that almost led to a US military strike against Iran on Thursday evening.

The cyberattacks - a contingency plan developed over weeks amid escalating tensions - disabled Iranian computer systems that controlled its rocket and missile launchers, the officials said. The attack was coordinated with the U.S. Central Command, which overseas military operations in the Middle East.

The reports came amid escalating tensions between Iran and the United States over the shooting down of an unmanned US drone by Tehran.

Last year, Trump withdrew the United States from the deal created to curb Iran's nuclear ambitions in exchange for sanctions relief, and reinstated measures created to choke off Iranian oil sales and cripple its economy.

Norway vs. Australia in the round of 16
Australia was fortunate that Norway's Vilde Boe Risa's audacious effort struck the bar, but their luck ran out in the shoot-out.

"Today, the situation in the region is to Iran's advantage".

Tensions between the USA and Iran are rooted in a decision by the Trump administration to withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers.

The cyber attacks against the Iranian spy agency represented the first offensive show of force since the cyber command was elevated to a full combatant command in May. "I am confident that at the very moment they are ready to engage with us we will be able to begin these conversations".

Over the past weeks the USA and Iran's main regional rival Saudi Arabia have also blamed Iran for attacks on two oil tankers last week in the Gulf of Oman and on four tankers off the United Arab Emirates on May 12.

Tensions between Washington and Tehran flared up after Iran, on Tuesday, said it shot down a United States "spy" drone which violated its airspace - a claim the USA denies - near the strategic Strait of Hormuz. The kingdom has been at war in Yemen against the rebels since 2015.
