Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, sent a message to the country’s university students to prepare for cyber war, according to Iran’s semi-official government news agency Mehr , on Wednesday. The radical cleric also referred to cyber-war as “a demanding field,” according to the report.

“You are the cyber-war agents and such a war requires Ammar-like insight and Malik Ashtar-like (two Prophet’s Companions in early Islamic history) resistance; get yourselves ready for such war wholeheartedly,” his message said.

“Know all dimensions of the Dominance Power even go through its layers and learn about its goals to analyze its real strategies; to face it, exploit all of your capacities and rely upon Divine promises,” it added.

According to Mehr, the head of Bodies Representing the Leader in Universities delivered the message to the plenary meeting of the Islamic Association of Independent University Students.
