Recently on 24th May, hackers had targeted  The Statistical Centre Of Iran  and made it temporarily out of service.  Iran's cyber police claims to have traced the hackers IP addresses relating to three Arab countries including Saudi Arabia . 

Cyber police chief General Kamal Hadianfar stated that detailed report of all the IP addresses and exact locations of hackers from Saudi Arabia have been submitted , and ensured that the justice will be done pertaining to the crime . 

Hadianfar said,  "We monitored a cyber attack on May 24 which was conducted from three countries and led by hackers in Saudi Arabia and they launched deceive attacks on the Statistical Centre of Iran and of course such an attack is not important technically," 

Some of the speculations were made initially regarding involvement of extremist group ISIS, but Hadianfar dismissed any such link saying that, "The hacker already had a hacking record and was identified by FATA ".

Hackers were not able to steal any sensitive data or classified information , it was more of a show - off by Saudi Arabia, claimed head of Iran's  Civil Defence Oraganization, General Gholam Reza Jalali.

According to Al-Monitor, just day after reports of attack on Iran's statistic center emerged, hackers targeted two of the Saudi Arabian government website. Hadianfar said attack may have been orchestrated by emotional move and Iran has not carried out any "organized" attack.

Jalali mentioned that Iran will be conducting specialized war games in order to boost its cyber defense.
