The attack occurred on October 26, and the terrorist in question killed 15 people, including women and children, and wounded 30 others.
Iran’s Intelligence Ministry, in a short statement, added that two others terrorists who had entered the country to conduct similar terrorist operations were also arrested.
The investigations and actions resulted in the identification and arrest of all those who planned, perpetrated, and supported the terrorist assault, according to the statement, which stated that 26 takfiri terrorists were arrested, all of whom are foreigners from Azerbaijan, Tajikistan and Afghanistan.
On his account, Iranian Judiciary Chief Gholam-Hossein Mohseni Ejei highlighted that "the enemy has suffered a significant defeat, and it attempts to compensate by causing harm to Iran, and it may continue to do so."
On the backdrop of his visit to the province of Sistan and Baluchistan, the commander of the Iranian border guards, Brigadier General Ahmed Ali Gudarzi, said that "the Iranian forces confiscated over 600 lethal weapons during the past 45 days."
"The current riots are plotted by the United States, Israel, and their agents," Gudarzi continued.
"We will vigorously combat anyone who attempts to destabilize the country," he concluded by saying.
Leaked recording reveals media conspiracy
Earlier, a leaked audio recording for BBC Persian TV's Senior Presenter, Iranian-British journalist Rana Rahimpour, revealed the real purpose of provoking the recent riots in Iran.
In the recording, Rahimpour said, "Iran International (backed by Saudi Arabia) instructed its employees to only conduct television interviews with leaders of anti-regime parties in Iran."
Rahimpour added, "The disturbing news that I heard yesterday is that the directors of Iran International directed their employees to only conduct television interviews with the leaders of the anti-regime parties in Iran; I mean the leaders of the Kurdish, Lur, Arab, and other parties...this is very worrying."
Iranian sources reported on Sunday that the IRGC dismantled a terrorist group in the southwestern province of Khuzestan in Iran.
Official sources revealed that the terrorists confessed to planning on carrying out a series of assassinations targeting a number of high-profile figures, as well as triggering massive riots similar to those that occurred in the cities of Zahedan and Ardabil.
The intelligence said that the terrorist units were planning to recruit rioters, attack government and security centers, destroy property, kill citizens.
