Iranian security forces have dismantled two foreign-backed terrorist teams, which were plotting to assassinate several foreign nationals working on infrastructure projects in the country’s southeastern province of Sistan and Baluchestan.
Iran’s Intelligence Ministry said in a statement on Monday that six armed terrorists, who had sneaked into the country via the southeastern border, were captured after being identified by the security forces. They were arrested before they could take any action to carry out their mission.
The statement added that the terrorists' support team was disbanded as well.
Back in September last year, Iran’s security forces identified and dismantled a terrorist and counterrevolutionary team in the country’s northwestern province of West Azarbaijan.
