The Law Enforcement Force of the Islamic Republic of Iran, domestically known by the acronym NAJA, disbanded a terrorist ring in southern provinces and arrested its members.
This was announced by NAJA in a statement on Tuesday, IRNA reported.
According to the statement, a group of saboteurs had hatched plots to organize armed conspiracies in the country in a bid to compromise the society’s public security.
It added the main members of the terrorist group were immediately identified and captured in southern Iranian provinces thanks to the round-the-clock efforts of the country’s Armed Forces and NAJA’s intelligence dominance and after constant observation of the ring’s activities.
The statement said following technical investigations, it became evident that the terror ring was affiliated to foreign terror groups and backed and led by them.
The NAJA gave the assurance that results of further research and investigation about the group will be announced subsequently.
The Iranian Armed Forces have successfully disbanded many terrorist groups in the country over the past few months.
In late June, Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) announced that its forces had identified and dismantled three terrorist and counterrevolutionary teams in the country's northwestern provinces of West Azarbaijan and Kurdestan 10 days before the June 18 presidential election.
"During the election time, the enemy had been pursuing special plans and sought to carry out terrorist measures but it was faced with firm reaction from the IRGC’s Ground Force," Commander of IRGC’s Ground Force Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour said at that time.
He added that two terrorist and counterrevolutionary teams were dismantled in the cities of Oshnaviyeh and Baneh in West Azarbaijan and Kurdestan provinces respectively.
Another terrorist team that had infiltrated into the country from the city of Sarvabad in Kurdestan Province was also destroyed, Pakpour said.
The IRGC commander emphasized that all border areas across the country are fully secured.
Back on May 30, IRGC forces identified and dismantled a terrorist and counterrevolutionary team in the province of West Azarbaijan, according to a statement by the IRGC Ground Force’s Hamzeh Seyed al-Shohada Base.
