Iran s Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alawi announced that the country’s security forces managed to detain members of a terrorist team affiliated to the Daesh (ISIS or ISIL) in southwestern Iran.
The terrorists were arrested in the country’s south western areas, Alavi said, the Iranian media outlets reported.
Alavi said that the team members were planning to form a group in Iran and join the ISIS.
They were planning to carry out “sabotage operations in certain areas of the country” which was foiled, he added.
Iran has arrested dozens of terrorists since the deadly attacks on Tehran on June 7, 2017, which left at least 17 dead and 43 injured.
The attacks were simultaneously carried out by five ISIS-linked terrorists on the Iranian Parliament building and the Mausoleum of late Imam Khomeini.
