Iran says it has arrested main culprits connected to an Israeli website, stressing that the Islamic Republic closely monitors Israel’s intelligence service, Mossad.
“Iran’s Intelligence Ministry not only closely monitors various Mossad measures inside the country but it also pursues moves by this intelligence service in Muslim and neighboring countries,” IRNA quoted Iranian Intelligence Minister Heidar Moslehi as speaking to reporters on Sunday.
Israel launched a website (built by the foundation of Israeli missing soldier), Ron Arad, as a non-governmental organization (NGO) 20 years ago ostensibly to carry out humanitarian acts, he added.
“The Zionist regime (Israel) seeks to use the site to identify and cooperate with individuals from different countries as spies in order to monitor different measures taken by Muslim countries,” the Iranian minister pointed out.
However, the Intelligence Ministry succeeded in identifying many individuals who had been deceived by the Israeli site, Moslehi emphasized.
In mid-January, Moslehi said Iran has managed to overcome Mossad that is supported by US and Western states.
Iranian forces penetrate into the depth of the Mossad information system and recognize and dismantle its different networks, the Iranian minister said.
