Iranian authorities said they have arrested three members of an Israeli Mossad cell that was plotting to assassinate Iranian nuclear scientists in the Zahedan province, in the southeast of Iran.
The Iranian news agency IRNA quoted the public prosecutor in Zahedan Province Mehdi Shamsabadi yesterday, Tuesday 21 June: ‘the strong intelligence gathered, the members of the cell were identified and arrested in different provinces,’ the prosecutor added that the assassins didn’t resist arrest when faced wit the arrest warrants due to the compelling evidence.’
This is the fourth operation to successfully capture Israeli Mossad agents in Iran within three months only, local news is reporting.
The Iranian General Intelligence Office in the provinces of Sistan and Baluchestan announced the arrest of three Mossad spies, by order of the judiciary that “these individuals were involved in the dissemination of confidential information and documents,” quoting the Zahedan public prosecutor: “The case is currently in the preliminary investigation stage, and an indictment will be issued and sent to the court soon.”
Previous Israeli terrorist, spying, and assassination cells arrested in Iran this year:
- On 22 May, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps identified and arrested a spying cell working for the Zionist regime, referring to the Israeli Mossad.
- On 21 April, the Iranian security arrested three Israeli Mossad agents in the provinces of Sistan and Baluchestan.
- On 13 March, Iranian security dismantled an Israeli spying cell in the province of Azerbaijan, northwest of Iran.
The Israeli Mossad in cooperation with the spy agencies of NATO member states and some of the Gulfies has carried out a series of terrorist attacks inside Iran against Iranian nuclear facilities and the assassination of several Iranian nuclear scientists and army officers. The Israelis with the help of their friends have also carried out a number of cyber attacks against sensitive targets in the Iranian state’s infrastructure dangerously including attacks against nuclear facilities in the Islamic country. The Israelis have not spared Iranian oil cargo ships from their piracy and drone-bombing terrorism.
In its turn, Iran has responded by increasing its counter-terrorism, and counter-spying capabilities foiling a large number of similar Israeli terrorist attacks, and also delivering severe blows back to the Israelis and their sponsors including most notably the bombing of the Ain Asad military base in Iraq used by the US army in retaliation to the killing of the Iranian IRGC Commander Qasem Soleimani, and the bombing of the Israeli Mossad base on the 13th of March in Erbil, Kurdistan province in northern Iraq, and targeting Israeli cargo ships each time the Israelis attacked an Iranian ship.
