According to the Washington Post, an unidentified Intelligence Ministry official said that heavy bombs, machine guns, handguns, silencers, military and telecommunications equipment and other terrorist tools" were seized during several raids.

Even though the report did not name the regional country, Iranian media in recent months have quoted several officials as saying that neighboring Azerbaijan has sheltered operatives plotting attacks in Iran.

The Intelligence Ministry said security forces identified and arrested all of the team's members before they could implement their plan

However, the Israeli Government has refused to comment on the arrest s made.

Iran was also rocked last year by a series of mysterious explosions that damaged strategic gas pipelines and a key missile base. (ANI)
