A senior Iranian official said authorities have apprehended several people suspected of planning bomb attacks in the capital Tehran.
Iran's Supreme National Security Council Secretary Ali Shamkhani made the remarks during a Sunday speech in the capital.
Noting that the arrests were made over the last few days, Shamkhani added that the attacks were planned for the holy month of Ramadan.
“Wherever it may occur in Iran, any suspicious move will be swiftly detected; this is thanks to the presence of the people and capable and experienced organizations,” he said.
There is much experience with Iran's security and police apparatuses regarding all types of war, and foreign and western countries eagerly ask Iran to share its experience with them and they feel safer in Tehran than Paris, he added.
The official noted that the Takfiri terrorist groups have been created to sow discord among Muslim nations.
The Takfiris have given a mission to avert the enmity shaped against the Zionists, and now they have the Muslim communities in their crosshairs with bombs and suicide operations, Shamkhani said.
What the Takfiris have done tend to constitute the biggest act of treason against Muslims, and after all, a big service to the Zionists, he said.
In May, Iran’s Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alavi announced that 20 terrorist groups that had planned to detonate bombs and cause insecurity across the country had been dismantled.
