The Iranian Aerospace Force has hacked into the United States drone command and control system as a response to US’ claims of sabotaging Tehran’s missiles.
“We did this to tell them (the Americans) that you not only failed to achieve your goals, but we infiltrated into your systems,” and this was a response to the United States’ insolence, the commander of the IRGC’s Aerospace Division, Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh was quoted as saying by PressTV Sunday.
The US administration earlier this month had reportedly revived a secret plan to sabotage Iran’s ballistic missiles as part of its broader plan to weaken the Islamic Republic’s military might and harm its economy, according to the New York Times report of February 12.
“If we are declaring this issue today, it is because Americans were impudent enough to say that they have sent impaired parts for [the purpose of sabotaging] our missiles,” said Hajizadeh,
“They tried to sabotage some [missile] parts to make our missiles blow while flying, but they have not been able to do a damn thing up to the present time, because we had predicted this and had fortified this sector,” he added..
Last Friday, the IRGC said it had penetrated US drone command and control networks, releasing footage of a US military aircraft bombing a hacked drone out of fear that it might end up in the hands of Iranian armed forces.
Hajizadeh said at that time that the US drone was operating in Syria and Iraq when it was forced to make an emergency landing due to a problem it faced during flight.
