Arms Caches for Terror Plots Seized

Two large caches of bombs, explosives, and ammunition, intended for use in “terrorist operations” in public areas, have been found in eastern and western Iran, the Intelligence Ministry said on Wednesday. The cache found in eastern Iran consisted of 23 remote controlled bombs which have been brought across the eastern border with the help of “Saudi intelligence services”, said a statement quoted by state media, according to Reuters. Last June, the self-styled Islamic State terror group carried out attacks at the Iranian parliament in Tehran and the mausoleum of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic, south of the capital, which killed at least 18 people. Iran blamed Saudi Arabia for the attacks.   The second cache was found in the town of Marivan in western Iran. The cache consisted of TNT, explosives kits, electronic detonators, grenades, ammunition clips for AK-47 machine guns, and four rocket propelled grenades, the statement said.  A “terrorist group” brought the material from the Kurdish region of Iraq across the border into Iran, the ministry statement said, without elaborating.
