Iranian security forces

Iranian security forces have arrested 27 terrorists linked to the ISIS Takfiri group planning to carry out any acts of terror in the country.

Alwaght- Iranian security forces have arrested 27 terrorists linked to the ISIS Takfiri group planning to carry out terror attacks in the country.

In a statement on Sunday, Iran’s Intelligence Ministry said the country's security forces have managed to identify and arrest the ISIS-linked terrorists, who were planning to carry out acts of terror in provinces deep in the country as well as religious cities ahead of the Saturday swearing-in ceremony of President Hassan Rouhani.

The terrorists were arrested during a series of intelligence operations and through intelligence sharing with the intelligence service of a regional country, the statement  red.

The Iranian forces also confiscated some military equipment that the terrorists intended to bring into the country, the statement said.

It noted that 10 terrorists were arrested outside the country while 17 others were nabbed in the country.

According to the Ministry, five terrorists were designated as would-be perpetrators of acts of terror in Iran while the others were in charge of procurement and providing support.

The statement came after Commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Ground Force Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour said on Sunday that the body had smashed a terrorist outfit in a northwestern Iranian border area.

Iran has arrested over 100 terrorists since the June twin terrorist attacks in the Iranian capital, Tehran, which killed 17 people and injured over 50 others.

On June 7, gunmen mounted almost simultaneous assaults on Iran’s Parliament and the Mausoleum of the late Founder of the Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini. The ISIS Takfiri terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attacks.
