Tehran (ISNA) - Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani has said certain countries are waging a "proxy war" against the Islamic Republic via social media and the internet.

Shamkhani in an interview with Lebanon’s Al Mayadeen on Monday noted that the United States, Britain and Saudi Arabia are behind the recent riots in Iran and the hashtags and social media campaigns cornering the situation in Iran are all in fact being guided by these countries.  

"Based on our analyses, around 27 percent of the new hashtags against Iran are generated by the Saudi government," he added.

Shamkhani added that this foreign-backed intervention is aimed at hampering Iran’s progress in different spheres, Press TV reported.

"What is happening in Iran will be over in a few days, and there is no reason to worry at all," he noted.
