Disclosure of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ “confidential” intelligence document revealing the organisation’s secret plans to carryout cyber-attacks against Turkey’s infrastructure.
According to various news sources, the Islamic Republic of Iran has repeatedly attacked Turkey’s sensitive infrastructure during 2014-15, the least of which were the infliction of heavy damages to the Turkish electricity grid.
According to Amad-News, this document addresses the scope of the cyber-attacks committed by the Islamic Republic of Iran against Turkey and its possible consequences, which include:
1. Bloomberg report of April 2015, which states, “There has been an overwhelming 10-hour power crash in Turkey, which has been unprecedented in the last 15 years and has affected people in elevators, caused severe traffic jams and has even adversely affected health centres.” The prime minister in response to these events stated, that all probabilities, including a cyber-attack, would be investigated, especially as it was reported that an earlier explosion in Turkey’s oil pipelines in 2008 occurred on the basis of cyber-hacking operations on the computers of that pipeline. According to reports released by Anatolian News during that period, the Turkish National Electricity Company reported an incident of cybercrime. 
2. According to Al-Monitor newspaper, as per the December 2015 issue, there were two reports in 2014 and 2015 of cyberattacks in Turkey. Al-Monitor reported that 400,000 websites registered in Turkey, ending with .tr extension were hacked, and towards the end of 2014, several large banks and ISPs were the target of cyber-attacks. According to the Central Intelligence Centre, a network in Ankara said the attacks were unprecedented in Turkish history and resulted in the disruption of many government services. But who are the hackers? The Tukish newspaper Hürriyet wrote: “The attacks may have occurred on the part of Russia, which is due to the clashes between Turkey and Russia over ISIL, but no evidence was provided for this claim.” 
3. The Hebrew newspaper of Israel wrote in March of 2015, that various reports from Turkey have emanated that the power outage during 2014-15 was due to cybercrime, with most fingers pointing towards Iran. As in the region, Iran is the only power that is capable of destructive cyberattacks, and in the past has shown that if its interests are threatened, it is willing to use cyberattacks as source of weapons. Experts say it is likely that extensive power outages in Turkey were caused by Iran’s cyberattacks on several power centres and a subway facility due for launch. 
4. The British Observer newspaper, in its coverage of news from various media sources in May 2015, wrote that Iran’s cyber-power might turn Turkey back into the Stone Age. Based on extensive evidence and reports from technical companies that have been contracted by the Turkish government over the last two years, Iranian cyberattacks seem to be the main reason behind the large power outages in Turkey, to the extent that half of the country has suffered from outages that have affected several public services. These reports even suggest the possibility of power outages at various airport air traffic control systems. 
5. A technical website that covers smart grid intelligence, while referring to Turkish power outages has quoted several cyber experts who openly cite Iran’s cyberattacks as the main reason for the outages. 
6. The Turkish newspaper, Hürriyet daily news, also writes in its analysis that according to experts it is clear that Turkey is not ready for cyber warfare; at the height of ISIL’s attacks, Iranians easily inflicted a lot of damage through cyberattacks, while Turkey still remains unsure as to the research and eradication of this problem. 
7. A London-based research firm called Small Media has also reported on the extent of Iran’s cybercrime operations. According to Pierluigi Paganini, the Senior Official of ENISA (European Network and Information Security Agency), research on Iran has shown that there has been great deal of investments in Iran’s hostile role and in its cybercrime activities which have not diminished since the administration of Hassan Rouhani’s government in 2013. In fact, various media sources that do not have any political allegiances, all accuse Iran of being responsible for electricity outages in Turkey. It is also clear that the moderate government of Hassan Rouhani has not cut its cybercrime budget and a centre called the National Cyberspace Centre, under the auspices of the Supreme Leader, continues to pursue its earlier policies. Turkey’s power outage is consistent with what we see in the region and all point to the same direction and the same type of hostile activity. 
8. Various reports indicate that the Islamic Republic’s cyberattack operations against Turkey began after Turkey started to support Saudi Arabia in Yemen, in opposition to Houthis, who are supported by powerful elements in Iran. Although Iran and Turkey were already in disagreement with regards to ISIS, Saudi Arabia’s invasion of Yemen and Turkey’s policy convergence with Saudi Arabia have increased the level of anger in Iran towards Turkey. In response, Iran immediately set up a group called the Yemeni Cyber Army, who then leaked series of information to WikiLeaks, that it obtained by hacking the Saudi Foreign Ministry. Turkey’s blackouts also appear to be due to Iran’s attacks and be a form of hostile cyberbullying. The reports show that in 2015, Iran has attacked the sensitive infrastructure of Turkey at least 3 times, and has caused the Metro power grids and Turkey’s fuel and air navigation systems to fail. 
9. The Turkish newspaper, Toady’s Time, has also covered these attacks on several occasions. It states that according to informed sources, whose names are not disclosed, Iran has undoubtedly contributed to the instability of the infrastructure of Turkey through its recent cyber-attacks, and Turkey has expressed its concerns to some of its sympathetic allies. The excessive outages in 2014 and 2015, which occurred in different areas, indicate that Iran is willing to use its cyber army against its neighbours. The state of Turkey and the Saudi example (the attack on its State Department), as well as previous examples, such as cyber-attacks on Saudi Oil Company (Aramco) and the Qatari gas company, clearly confirm that they were all targeted by the Iranian cyber army. 
The question now is, under whose authority and name were these cyber-attacks carried out? Turkeys’ powerful neighbour (Iran) not only brought down the infrastructure of Turkey, but also threatened the daily lives of its ordinary people. Is it not time to end these power plays that cause unrealistic cost-cutting (i.e. transfer of funds) from the pockets of the ordinary Iranian people, all for personal power ambitions of the few? Is it not time to ask, how is the Iranian Cyber Army is controlled, funded and who it is managed by?
Iran’s cyber-bullying attacks will only lead to the further sanctions by the UN Security Council, just like nuclear ambitions and missile warfare. This soft-war, which is not so soft, consumes electricity, oil and critical infrastructure such as telecommunications and satellites. Who really pays for this?
The documents sent to Amad News show that the cyber warfare directorate of the Revolutionary Guard Corps form the first line of this national warfare. According to the documents, which were first published by “Amad News” and classified as “very confidential”, the key words for “Cyber Offensive, Turkey, SCADA, Electronic Warfare, CYBINT” are all clearly displayed.
In the text of the document, signed by Naeem, Deputy Commander of the 2050 IRGC operations, it is written: “With Salawat upon Muhammad (PBUH) and his Companions. Referring to letter No. 9/45688 / p. 94 / dated 1392 / 8/ 22 (Nov 2013) and the order of the Manager of Operation-50, Mr. Arash Afshar Nazari (File [Alias] Mehdi Asgari-Category-12 Protection-Personnel 773015) will be introduced to the deployment in the appropriate building, in order to organise the Cyber Offensive Team for Turkey.
It should be noted that, according to the management’s order, the manager of this group must have access to all sources in 2050 and other abilities and accesses to operations within the Arab region, but their missions will not be disclosed to other people, not even generals.
With the release of this document, it is clear that Maj. Gen. Ja’fari, the commander-in-chief of the Revolutionary Guards, Hussein Taeb, the head of the intelligence agency of this institution, and the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic as the commander-in-chief of the Islamic Republic, are all responsible and must provide answers for the warfare against our friends and neighbours, as well as the damages and international sanctions that will inevitably be brought against Iran and the Iranian people for these actions.
