The Iran experiment?

I thought – the recent cyber attacks, not too frequent, but quite regularly, against broad civilian infrastructures in Iran, such as electricity, gas stations, trains and the like.

This kind of things that will not bother directly the regime, but will actually make it really difficult for the lives of the citizens there very extensively, who already suffer from difficult living conditions – is this an attempt to bring them to despair and rage that will lead them to a coup against the regime?

I do not think such a thing has been tried before in the world, but in a “cold” look, if it is so – then it is an interesting experiment of pushing the masses into action through cyber
attacks against the physical dimension.
