Donald Trump announces new sanctions on Iran from Monday

Tehran maintained that the drone was shot down over its territory, whereas Washington claimed that it happened in global airspace.

In the cyber domain, Iran's attacks are "looking to do much more than just steal data and money", Krebs said in the statement.

"Regardless of any decision they (U.S. officials) make. we will not allow any of Iran's borders to be violated". I didn't think it was, I didn't think it was proportionate, ' Trump said he thought when a U.S. General told him the attack could have resulted in 150 deaths in Iran.

Officials say USA military cyber forces earlier this week launched a retaliatory cyber strike against Iranian computer systems amid escalating tensions between the two countries. Washington and Tehran dispute whether it was in worldwide airspace at the time. "I think it's a great story, they had it in sight and they did not knock it down, I think they were very wise not to do that", the governor said.

"We 're not going to have Iran have a nuclear weapon", Trump told reporters outside the White House as he prepared to depart for Camp David for meetings on the situation with Iran, which downed a United States drone earlier this week.

The chants, often repeated since the 1979 Islamic revolution which toppled the USA -backed Shah, came weeks after Trump said in a US television interview: "They (Iranians) haven't screamed "death to America" lately".

Joneidi further denounced the U.S. move to deploy a spy drone into Iranian airspace as a "violation of the worldwide law", noting that Tehran will be taking judicial measures in this regard.

Trump, who was speaking to reporters at the White House, made his comments after recently calling off military action against Iran to retaliate for the downing of a USA military drone.

Trump said he backed away from the planned strikes after learning 150 people would be killed. "They're going to be so happy, and I'm going to be their best friend", he told reporters.

On Saturday, Christopher Krebs, director of the Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, issued a warning about Iranian cyberattacks on American industries and government agencies, saying "malicious cyberactivity" was on the rise.

Washington has imposed a series of measures against Tehran since Trump pulled out of a landmark nuclear accord between Iran and world powers a year ago.

His comments came a day ahead of a new round of sanctions that Mr Trump said would be imposed on the Iranian economy. Iran can never have nuclear weapons, not against the United States of America, not against the world'.

Trump told NBC's Meet the Press show that if the USA went to war with Iran, "It'll be obliteration like you've never seen before".
