Iran nabs Jundallah-linked terror cell
Iran has dismantled a terrorist cell affiliated to the Pakistan-based Jundallah group while arresting five terrorists in Iran's southeastern province of Sistan-Baluchestan, reported Press TV.
Security forces identified and dismantled a Jundallah-linked terrorist group which intended to incite insecurity in the region, the Sistan-Baluchestan Intelligence Office said Monday.
The terrorists were arrested in separate intelligence operations before conducting any acts of terror.
Security forces also confiscated four explosive vests and rounds of ammunition.
The terrorist group planned to carry out terrorist operations to meet the ominous objectives of arrogant powers, particularly the United States and Israel.
The Pakistan-based terrorist group Jundallah has carried out numerous bombings, assassination attempts, and terrorist attacks in Iran.
Its leader Abdolmalek Rigi was arrested by Iranian intelligence forces in February 2010 and executed in June for 79 counts of crime, including man slaughter, armed robbery, bombing operations and armed attacks on police and civilians.
