Iran says Daesh elements arrested in vicinity of capital

Iran says it has identified and arrested in the vicinity of the country’s capital a number of Daesh elements planning to carry out acts of sabotage in Tehran.

“These individuals sought to [carry out their] plots during Bahman 22 rituals,” Iran’s Attorney General Mohammad Ja’far Montazeri said on Friday, referring to celebrations marking the victory of the Islamic Revolution in 1979.

Millions of Iranians filled the streets countrywide on Friday to relive the day 38 years ago when the nation’s hard-fought Islamic Revolution against the former US-backed regime became victorious.

On, February 11, 1979, the Iranian nation’s struggles and protests against the tyrannous monarchical Pahlavi regime came to fruition under the leadership of Imam Khomeini, the religious and spiritual leader who is known as the “great architect of the Islamic Republic.”

Referring to Iran’s support for anti-terrorist operations outside its borders, particularly Syria and Iraq, he said, according to intelligence obtained, the Daesh Takfiri group had had plans to conduct acts of terror inside the country.

He noted that further information on the plots of these nabbed Daesh operatives would be revealed to the Iranian nation within the next few days.

The senior Iranian judicial official emphasized that if the resistance front, supported by Iran, had not stood up against terrorists, Daesh Takfiri terrorists would have reached the country’s borders.
