Iran Thwarts Daesh Terror Plots: Intelligence Minister
Iranian Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alavi said the country’s security forces have managed to foil a number of attempts by the Daesh (also known as ISIL and ISIS) Takfiri terrorist group to send “terrorist teams” into Iran.
In an interview with Lebanese television station al-Mayadeen on Saturday, Alavi said, “Raqqa in Syria is one of the places where (Daesh) is plotting and making conspiracies against Iran.”
He further said the terrorist group has attempted to infiltrate into Iran’s borders for several times to send “terrorist teams” inside the country.
Alavi added that the plots were all thwarted and “all those terrorists were either annihilated or arrested during the past months.”
