Operations by Iran’s intelligence forces resulted in the arrest of over 130 ISIL operatives who had planned on detonating bombs in two provincial centers.
Iran’s intelligence minister said over 130 members of Takfiri groups have been arrested across the country as part of efforts to counter enemies’ threats against the Islamic Republic.
“The Takfiri elements were captured after tens of intelligence operations by Iranian intelligence forces led to the identification of the cells and the teams linked to Takfiri extremists,” Seyyed Mahmoud Alavi told members of the Iranian parliament on Tuesday.
The Iranian intelligence forces also foiled two bomb plots in two provincial centers on the International Quds Day, on the last Friday of the fasting month of Ramadan, said Alavi. Massive anti-Israel demonstrations are held in Iran on Quds day, which fell on July 25 this year.
Alavi also pointed to the operations against extremist groups in eastern and western Iran and said thanks to the appropriate cooperation among Iranian security and military bodies, full security is maintained in the country.
Iran’s intelligence ministry monitors the security issues through a realistic and futuristic approach and has managed to establish security across the country via collaboration with other security bodies, said the Iranian intelligence minister.
Given its full intelligence supremacy over the enemies, the intelligence ministry has prevented the ill-wishers from taking any move, he concluded.
