Iran´s intelligence ministry announced that it has arrested more than
15 Iranian and foreign suspects belonging to an Israeli-
linked "assassination" network, media sources reported on Tuesday.
The ministry also said it has uncovered a spy base run by Israel´s
Mossad in an unspecified neighboring country. "So far 15 people,
holding Iranian birth certificates and foreigners, have been
arrested," the ministry was quoted as saying.
The statement said the group´s mission "was to identify and
assassinate one of our nation´s experts and to bomb some of the
nation´s installations using professionally made technical tools."
It did not identify the alleged targets.
The statement added that the intelligence that uncovered the alleged
Israeli-linked group led to "reliable information which showed the
Zionist regime illegally used diplomatic missions in some Western
countries" to support the group´s missions.
Iran frequently announces the arrest of suspected spies working for
Israel or the United States without presenting evidence supporting
the charges of indictment. (IsraelNationalNews © 2012 04/18/12)
