Terror Acts by 30 Cells Thwarted in Recent Years Terror Acts by 30 Cells Thwarted in Recent Years

Iranian security forces have thwarted acts of terror by over 30 terrorist cells besides the self-styled Islamic State terror group in recent years, an official with Iran's Intelligence Ministry said. "More than 30 armed terrorist groups had plans to carry out measures over the past few years to make the country insecure and disturb the peace of the [Iranian] people," the deputy intelligence minister for counter-terrorism said in the southern city of Shiraz on Sunday, Press TV reported. He added that all the terrorist moves had been foiled thanks to the vigilance of the Iranian people and great efforts by security forces in cooperation with the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, Army, the police force and the judicial system. The unnamed official stressed the importance of remaining vigilant in the face of new plots by terrorists and their regional and international supporters. The IRGC Ground Forces' Najaf base said late in January that it had arrested 16 IS terrorists in the west of the country.
