Iranian forces arrest Daesh-linked terrorists

February 11, 2019

TEHRAN – Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alavi said on Sunday that Iranian security forces arrested on February 8 seven individuals linked to the Daesh (ISIL) terrorist group before they could carry out any acts of terror in the country.

Speaking to reporters in Tehran, Alavi said the group had hatched plots but their ploys were foiled successfully, Tasnim reported.

Iran has arrested dozens of terrorists since June 2017, when a twin terrorist attack in Tehran left 17 people dead and dozens more injured.
