On April 10, the Intelligence Ministry announced that key members of an Israeli terrorist network had been identified and arrested in Iran. At the time, the ministry said that further details about the number of terrorists, their missions, the equipment seized, and the terrorists’ bases of operation could not be released due to security considerations.
But in the statement issued on Tuesday, the Intelligence Ministry said that in one operation, intelligence forces were able to foil an Israeli plot to assassinate an Iranian specialist and arrested all the terrorists involved in the plot.
In another operation, the intelligence forces uncovered a plot to bomb one of the country’s major infrastructure facilities and identified and arrested Mossad-linked elements involved in the terrorist plot.
The statement added that a group of terrorists intended to carry out the terrorist action on February 10, one day before the 22nd of the Iranian calendar month of Bahman (February 11), which is the anniversary of the Islamic Revolution of 1979, to cast a shadow over the rallies held to commemorate the day.
