Iran successfully nipped bombing scheme in Tehran  apprehends 28 terrorists affiliated with Daesh

Iran has successfully thwarted a significant plan to carry out 30 simultaneous bomb attacks in highly populated areas of Tehran. The country's Intelligence Ministry announced that it had conducted operations over several days in Tehran, Alborz, and West Azarbaijan provinces, resulting in the arrest of 28 individuals linked to the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group.

Iran (IMNA) - The ministry further revealed that the apprehended operatives have affiliations with Daesh and some of them have previously collaborated with Takfiri groups in Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and the Kurdistan region of Iraq.

According to the ministry, the method used by the terrorist groups is much more intricate compared to typical extremist organizations and it closely resembles the tactics employed by the Israeli government. The ministry reported that the confiscated materials consisted of a significant quantity of explosives and prepared bombs, a set of 100 explosive initiators, electronic devices utilized in timed explosives, 17 handguns of US origin along with ammunition, various advanced communication devices, military attire, and suicide vests. The ministry confirmed that this act of terror was planned to coincide with the anniversary of last year's unrest in Iran. Daesh has taken responsibility for several attacks in Iran, including an assault on the Parliament and the mausoleum of Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic, in 2017. The terrorist organization has also claimed responsibility for two attacks on the Shah Cheragh shrine in the southern city of Shiraz, one in August 2023 and another in October 2022.

The violent protests in Iran began following the passing of Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old Iranian woman.

In the middle of September 2022, Amini lost consciousness at a police station in Tehran and subsequently passed away at the hospital. According to an official report from Iran's Legal Medicine Organization, Amini's death was attributed to an illness rather than alleged injuries to her head or vital organs.

Iran's intelligence community claimed that various countries, such as the United States and Britain, utilized their espionage and propaganda networks to instigate the unrest.
