Vowing Clampdown on Terrorists

Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alavi said security forces will soon give a “crushing response” to terrorists and groups hostile to the Islamic Republic operating in the region.
“Iranian youths will thwart enemies’ vicious plots through their acts of bravery,” Alavi said on Saturday, Press TV reported.
He stressed that security forces would not allow enemies to undermine the country’s security.
The minister promised that terrorist groups would fail to weaken the Iranian people’s determination.
On Dec. 28, protests over economic problems broke out in several Iranian cities, but the gatherings turned violent when groups of participants, some of them armed, vandalized public property and launched attacks on police stations and government buildings.
The sporadic violence continued for several days and claimed the lives of over a dozen people.
Lorestan Province’s intelligence office said on Friday that security forces had disbanded a local cell of the Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization terrorist group which had carried out acts of sabotage during the protests.
The Intelligence Ministry said in a statement on Thursday that its forces had dismantled a terrorist group and arrested its members in West Azarbaijan.
The terror outfit “had infiltrated into Iran with the aim of fueling the recent unrest.”
