(Worthy News) – Iran’s state TV reported Tuesday that Iranian government authorities had arrested members of a group connected to Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency, the Associated Press reports. The arrests were reported amid protests in Iran over water shortages in Khuzestan province.
Iran’s Islamic regime frequently blames Israel and the US for internal unrest – such as the increasing protests over water shortages in the southwestern part of the country.
According to Iran’s state TV report, “a network of spy agents, with a large number of weapons and ammunition” had been arrested after illegally entering Iran through its western border.” The report said the agents were connected to Mossad and had planned to use the weapons for assassinations, as well as during the water shortage riots.
The TV’s website published a video showing grenades, and guns including AK-47s and pistols in the back of a white SUV, the Times of Israel reports.“Some of these are used to provoke clashes during protests,” an Iranian official reportedly told state media. The official additionally claimed that Israel had tried to sabotage Iran’s recent election, but those efforts had been intercepted.
The Iranian regime led by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei does not recognize Israel and supports other enemies of Israel, including the Shiite Hezbollah terror organization and the Palestinian militant group Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip.
