In a statement released on Wednesday, the Intelligence Ministry said its forces have captured a hardened and dangerous terrorist who had been involved in terrorist operations in foreign countries.
According to the statement, the arrestee has taken part in terrorist activities in four countries of the region, had joined Takfiri-terrorist groups in Syria at the height of the crisis in the Arab country, and had committed criminal acts in the cities of Aleppo, Hama, and Idlib.
After the defeat of Takfiri terrorists in Syria, the “member of the ring of cross-border terrorism”, who is also an expert in heavy weapons, shifted his criminal activities to two neighbors of Iran and joined another terrorist group with criminal records against the unity of the Islamic community to continue with acts of sabotage against the Iranian nation and its territorial integrity, the statement added.
Earlier this month, the Intelligence Ministry arrested ten members of the Daesh (ISIL or ISIS) Takfiri terrorist group who had plans to carry out acts of terrorism targeting mourning ceremonies marking the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussein (AS), the third Shiite Imam (AS).
