Security forces smash terror ring in southern Iran: official

Iranian security forces disbanded a Takfiri terrorist group that had plotted to commit simultaneous terrorist attacks in several provinces backed by the intelligence services of two foreign countries, an official said.

The director of the Justice Ministry’s bureau in the southern Iranian province of Fars, Kazem Mousavi, announced on Monday that members of the Takfiri terrorist ring were identified and captured in the province in a joint operation launched by the Intelligence Ministry and police forces, Tasnim News Agency reported.

He said 11 active members of the terrorist group in Fars and 25 other members in six eastern and western provinces were arrested in the operation.

The terrorist group had released video clips in the virtual space in order to wreak terror, he added, noting that large amounts of ammunition and weapons have been confiscated from its members.

Mousavi added that the group’s ringleaders have been identified in foreign countries.

The ring planned to carry out simultaneous terrorist attacks in several Iranian provinces with the intelligence and financial support provided by a European as well as a regional country, the official added.
