Iranian Intelligence Minister Seyyed Mahmoud Alavi announced that the country's security forces have captured four members of the Daesh terrorist group.

"The four-member team had hatched their plots in meetings in one of our Southwestern provinces and they were led by a person whose brother was among the ranks of the Takfiri and terrorist groups in Syria and was killed in clashes in Syria some times ago," Alavi said on Tuesday, adding that the terrorists were "about to take action".

According to Fars news agency, he added that the team intended to join the Daesh abroad but the terrorist group’s chief had told them to remain in Iran, hatch plots, supply weapons and take action in Shiraz and Isfahan if they were not able to conduct terrorist acts in their own province.

Alavi explained that the terrorist team which had plotted to carry out terrorist acts in Iran and had accessed explosives was identified by the security forces, adding that three other people in connection with the four terrorists have also been captured and are now under interrogation.
