Iran denies running spy cell in Kuwait
A senior Iranian military official has denied reports that the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has been running a “spy cell” in Kuwait.
Kuwait’s Al-Qabas daily had claimed in a report on Saturday that security agencies in Kuwait have busted a spy cell working for the IRGC.
Lieutenant General Ramezan Sharif, the head of the IRGC public relations department, said that the claim is part of a “project to create a phobia towards the IRGC” in the region.
Sharif stated that the “Zionist media and their regional supporters” have stepped up efforts to weaken neighboring countries’ fondness for the Islamic Revolution by reporting on “fake subjects,” Fars news agency reported on Sunday.
“It has been proved to all that the IRGC is the front-runner in defending the [Iranian] national interests and because of this, Iran’s enemies are trying to prevent progress [of the IRGC] by their false claims,” Sharif added.
