Riots 'Israel'-made, UK media-sponsored, Saudi-funded: Tehran
The Iranian Interior Minister reveals that the leaders of the recent riots in Iran received training in seven countries.
Iranian Security Minister Esmail Khatib said 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.
Khatib stressed that Iran will never support terrorist acts like Britain, promising that the latter will pay the price for its actions in destabilizing Iran's security.
In a related context, the Minister pointed out that Iranian security services deem the Iran International media network a terrorist organization and its staff wanted by the Security Ministry, adding that any kind of contact with this organization is considered an entry into the terrorist field and a threat to Iran's national security.
Leaders of recent riots in Iran received training in seven countries
In the same context, Iranian Interior Minister Ahmad Vahidi revealed that the leaders of the recent riots in Iran received training in seven countries.
Referring to the recent riots, Vahidi considered that the enemy harnessed all its energies, including the media, in order to undermine national unity, but suffered defeat in the face of the vigilance and insight of the coherent Iranian people that were able to thwart this scheme.
It is noteworthy that in late October, the Iranian Intelligence Ministry and the IRGC's intelligence wing revealed that intelligence obtained by Tehran indicates that the CIA and allied intelligence services planned a conspiracy against the Islamic Republic.
"The conspiracy's goal is to commit a crime against the Iranian people and the territorial integrity of Iran," the statement underlined.
"The main perpetrators were the CIA, the British and Saudi intelligence services, the Israeli Mossad, and the intelligence services of other countries," it read, indicating that "the planning and the execution of the majority of the riots were carried out by the Mossad in collaboration with terrorist organizations."
