In a statement issued Tuesday afternoon, the Iranian Intelligence Ministry said its forces “have discovered one of the biggest terror and sabotage networks of the Quds Occupying Regime (Israel) and protected cells of its operatives and arrested groups of criminal terrorists and mercenaries cooperating with them”.
The Iranian intelligence forces said the move followed a series of sophisticated operations in several Iranian provinces along the borders and also in the Central country.
“…the complicated and months-long measures and moves made by the Iranian intelligence forces to identify the devils led to the discovery of the Zionists’ regional command center in one of the regional countries and discovering the identity of the agents active in that command center”, the statement added.
The statement also mentioned that the successful operation of the Iranian intelligence forces could foil several terrorist attacks in Iran in coming days since “a number of operating cells of this terror network were arrested as they were preparing for new terrorist operations”.
The ministry also said that it has discovered and seized large caches of ammunition, weapons and military and telecommunication tools and equipment in the operation.
The ministry declined to reveal any further details due to security considerations, but said it will provide the public with more information in due time.
