Sistan and Baluchestan counterrevolutionary group  apprehended by Iranian security forces

In the southeast Iranian province of Sistan and Baluchestan, security agents have detained members of a counterrevolutionary organization.

Iran (IMNA) - According to Iran's Tasnim news agency, the group was made up of four individuals who, "by receiving direction from abroad," had in recent months participated in periodic disturbances after Friday prayers in the provincial capital of Zahedan while yelling anti-Islamic Republic chants.

According to the arrestees' confessions, the group members were directed through international social media platforms and provided with a large number of anti-Iran banners and posters by a "intermediary."

After the Friday prayer in Zahedan, the members were told to hoist the Lion and Sun flag, representing the US-backed Pahlavi administration before the Islamic Revolution in 1979, and record footage of the crowds to submit to the foreign agent.

According to the news source, the counter-revolutionary organization hung anti-Iran banners and placards in an effort to depict the populace as "aligned" with the Pahlavi regime.

According to a statement released by Iran's intelligence ministry on Wednesday, its security forces have destroyed some terrorist groups linked to the Israeli government in four different Iranian provinces.

The "sabotage cells" were allegedly part of a significant "Zionist-terrorist" network that has carried out several operations in the four Iranian provinces of Khuzestan, Mazandaran, Kermanshah, and Sistan and Baluchestan, according to the Ministry.

According to reports, the terrorists detained by Iran's intelligence ministry were planning to launch strikes that would have involved the nation's law enforcement.
