Iran arrests three Israeli Mossad spies: State TV
Iran's intelligence ministry says three Israeli Mossad agents, who sneaked into the country from its western border posts, were arrested.
Iran announced on Thursday the arrest of three spies working for the Israeli occupation Mossad spy agency and accused them of being involved in the leaking of classified documents.
The Islamic republic's state television quoted the intelligence ministry as saying that "three people linked to Mossad have been arrested in the province of Sistan-Baluchistan over the publication of classified information and documents."
The television report did not identify the nationalities of those arrested or explain their involvement in the handling of classified information. Press TV reported that the three spies had been arrested upon judicial order.
The Iranian intelligence ministry’s director-general for counterintelligence explained that the Mossad agents had been arrested upon sneaking into Iran from the western border posts.
Iran's intelligence ministry announced in July that it had arrested agents who were members of a network working for the Israeli occupation and that it had seized a cache of weapons and ammunition intended for use in riots and terror in the country.
It is noteworthy that on Monday, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi warned the Israel occupation against the "slightest action" against the Islamic Republic, during a speech to the Iranian military.
