Civil Defense Organization Meets for Second Time in Days

TEHRAN -- The second meeting of a permanent committee of Iran’s Civil Defense Organization was held on Saturday to evaluate the preparedness of the country’s executive bodies against potential adversarial threats.
The meeting, which is the second since the start of the year, was chaired by Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Muhammad Bagheri and convened with the presence of the committee’s members.
During the meeting, Brigadier General Gholam-Reza Jalali, the head of Iran’s Civil Defense Organization and the permanent committee’s secretary, presented a report on the defensive measures adopted by the Iranian executive apparatuses concerning the recent national and regional developments.
Bagheri, for his part, called for the implementation of the instructions issued by the permanent committee for the executive bodies to maintain and improve their preparation.
Monitoring the enemy’s cyber activities and ensuing defensive measures as well as the financing of the civil defense plans were among the approved data-x-items in the meeting.
Reviewing the goals of the country’s civil defense for the executive bodies and the exchange of agreements were among the other issues discussed in the meeting, the approval of which was postponed to the next meeting.
The permanent committee of Iran’s Civil Defense Organization, headed by the chief of staff of the Iranian armed forces, is the highest decision-making authority in the field of civil defense in the country, whose decisions are binding for the entire military, governmental and non-governmental organizations.
Iran’s infrastructure has come under numerous cyber-attacks recently, particularly since the outbreak of foreign-backed riots across the country in September 2022.
The Islamic Republic has managed to thwart many of those attempting to disrupt public services.
