IRGC arrests agent of a Gulf country intelligence service
The IRGC arrests an unnamed Arab intelligence service agent who was planning to ignite insecurity in the city of Bandar Lengeh.
The Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) announced on Tuesday that it has arrested an agent of an unnamed Arab intelligence service in the city of Bandar Lengehthat who was planning to carry out sabotage in the south of Iran.
In a statement, the IRGC indicated that the agent was working for the intelligence service of a Gulf "reactionary state" - a term frequently used by Iranian authorities to identify Arab countries allied with the West, according to IRNA.
The IRGC pointed out that the agent was planning to ignite insecurity in the city of Bandar Lengeh.
In early November, Tasnim News Agency reported that police arrested three individuals in connection with US and Saudi-based organizations, commissioned to stir unrest in the country amid the recent riots.
Iranian Security Minister Esmail Khatib had said that it became clear in the recent events that the Zionist entity was responsible for implementation, the UK media was responsible for sponsoring, and Saudi Arabia was responsible for financial support.
In an interview for Iranian leader Sayyed Ali Khamenei's website, Khatib pointed out that Saudi Arabia provided full financial support for the corrupt Berlin exhibition in the field of advertising, creating spaces, renting photographic equipment, providing facilities for the presence of journalists, and distributing food.
It is noteworthy that in late October, the Iranian Intelligence Ministry and the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps' intelligence wing revealed that intelligence obtained by Tehran indicates that the CIA and allied intelligence services planned a conspiracy in Iran against the Islamic Republic.
