Iranian police have reportedly arrested the leader and four other members of a spy network affiliated with the Israeli government. 

“We detected and arrested an espionage network affiliated to the fake Israeli regime,” the intelligence department of Iran’s law enforcement force said in a statement on July 28. 

According to the statement, “members of the espionage network contacted the head of the Mossad spy organization following the instigation of a leader of one of the separatist groups, who has a history of being a mercenary for the Zionist regime.”

“Except for collecting intelligence, the members of this network engaged in arson, wrote slogans, propagated the Islamic Republic of Iran, and received the necessary training for armed operations and sabotage. All five members of the network were arrested before taking any such action,” the statement said, adding that those arrested were found to be in possession of “a large amount of advanced equipment, SIM cards, and mobile phones,” the statement said.

The intelligence division of Iran’s law enforcement force claims that the Mossad organization promised money to those arrested for gathering intelligence from vital areas of Iran.

In fact, on July 27, Iran’s Intelligence Minister, Esmail Khatib, told a meeting with lawmakers that Tehran had “conducted successful operations” against Israel in recent months, which shows the Islamic Republic’s intelligence power.

On the same day, Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence released a statement detailing the newly arrested group saying they were members of the Komalah (Kurdish group) terrorist and mercenary group, who had been directly selected by Abdollah Mohtadi, the group’s leader for this mission, who reports to Mossad officers.

Earlier, Iran’s Intelligence Ministry announced that it had arrested members of a terrorist group who were planning to blow up a defence facility in the country’s Isfahan province, which is home to several nuclear facilities.

The Ministry said in a statement that the arrested network had entered Iran through the Kurdistan region of Iraq with the intention of carrying out unprecedented acts of terrorism and sabotage in some critical and predetermined locations using the most modern operational methods and means of communication as well as high explosives.
