  • Iran: Intelligence forces arrest 10 foreign-linked terrorists in southeastern Kerman Province

Intelligence forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran have arrested 10 Takfiri and counter-revolutionary terrorists affiliated to foreign spy services in the southeastern city of Kerman.

According to Press TV, Kerman Province’s Prosecutor Dadkhoda Salari told reporters on Wednesday that the terrorists were attempting to carry out acts of terror and harassment, create insecurity through violent measure, but were identified by intelligence forces.

“A number of these Takfiri elements had entered the province from abroad in order to incite insecurity, while some others inside the country had been receiving training from abroad to carry out acts of sabotage,” the official added.

He added that the intelligence forces had also confiscated weapons belonging to Takfiri and counter-revolutionary terrorists and perpetrators of organized crimes.

An official with Iran’s Intelligence Ministry said earlier this month that an Israeli spy and a number of other spies tied to security services of different countries had been arrested in the northwestern province of East Azarbaijan.

Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Ground Force’s Quds Base also announced last week that it had destroyed a team of terrorists, who had entered the region to carry out acts of terror, in the southeastern province of Sistan and Baluchestan.
