Iran has apprehended a number of terrorists tasked by Saudi Arabia with carrying out bombings inside the Islamic Republic
Iran has apprehended a number of terrorists tasked by Saudi Arabia with carrying out bombings inside the Islamic Republic, a senior Iranian official announced on Monday.
“The Saudis opened a consulate in Iraq’s Arbil and had a number of terrorist groups enter into Iran to carry out explosions; they all have been arrested,” Mohsen Rezaei, the secretary of Iran’s Expediency Council, said, referring to the capital of the Iraqi Kurdistan.
“The Foreign Ministry should circulate the documents and evidence pertaining to these groups throughout the world so that at least Muslim countries get to know that Saudis maniacally disturb the region’s calm and secure scene and pursue terror acts.”
He also advised that Iranian authorities stop exercising patience with Riyadh, and act against its acts of instigation.
On Sunday, it was reported that Iran had captured two ISIL terrorists in the country’s western province of Hamadan which borders the Iranian provinces of Kurdistan and Kermanshah near Iraq.
The province’s intelligence director general said the two, both Iranian nationals with links to ISIL, had been caught during two separate intelligence operations while they were en route to Tehran.
On Tuesday, Rezaei warned that a seditious push is underway against the Muslim world, with Wahhabism at its center.
“Wahhabism and Zionism are maniacally acting against the Muslim and resistance front every day,” he said. “Their last measure was to prevent Iranian pilgrims from going on the Hajj pilgrimage,” he added.
