Iran thwarts bomb attacks in several cities

Iran’s Intelligence Ministry, in a statement on Monday, said that security forces had recently foiled several bombing plots by Takfiri-Wahhabi groups in Tehran and several other provinces.

The statement added that Iranian forces also arrested a number of terrorists and seized bombs and a large cache of explosives, Press TV reported.

Another senior Iranian official said on Sunday that authorities had apprehended several people suspected of planning bomb attacks in the capital Tehran.

Iran's Supreme National Security Council Secretary Ali Shamkhani made the remarks during a speech in the capital.

Noting that the arrests were made over the last few days, Shamkhani added that the attacks were planned for the holy month of Ramadan.

“Wherever it may occur in Iran, any suspicious move will be swiftly detected; this is thanks to the presence of the people and capable and experienced organizations,” he said.

In May, Iran’s Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alavi announced that 20 terrorist groups that had planned to detonate bombs and cause insecurity across the country had been dismantled.
