Iranian Prosecutor General and Judiciary Spokesman Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejeie announced on Monday that security forces have arrested a number of Takfiri terrorists who were trying to sneak into the country.
“The necessary orders have been given to the security bodies to prevent these people’s (Takfiris’) infiltration into the country and a number of them have, of course, been arrested for the same charge,” Ejeie told reporters in his weekly press conference in Tehran on Monday.
The spokesman declined to reveal any further detail with regard to the captured terrorists.
Elsewhere, he announced that the Iranian anti-drug squads have disbanded two gangs involved in drug-trafficking activities in the Capital city of Tehran and the Central province of Isfahan.
“One gang was disbanded in Tehran and another one in Isfahan with over 130kg of heroine and crack (condensed heroin),” Ejeie said.
In relevant remarks in January, Iranian Judiciary Chief Sadeq Amoli Larijani warned the country’s security and intelligence forces to safeguard the country’s borders against the possible penetration attempts by Takfiri groups.
“The Takfiri and Salafi streams are not at all related to Islam or our Sunni brothers’ beliefs, but they are a cult which have been created by the West to weaken the Islamic societies,” Larijani said, addressing a number of Judiciary officials.
“We ask the intelligence ministry and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) to keep vigilant against the danger of the infiltration of Takfiri streams into the country and never think that the Takfiri viewpoints are related to the different thinking of Islamic sects; rather they should encounter them in a manner appropriate to the anti-security nature of the streams,” he added.
