TEHRAN, Jun. 24 (MNA) – IRGC Ground Forces commander announced the arrest of two terrorists in southeast of Iran, saying the terrorists have confessed to their crimes and how they were backed by Saudi Arabia and US in advancing their goals.

“These people have confessed to wider aspects of their crimes and the supportive role of Saudi Arabia and the US in advancing the objectives of this terrorist team,” said Pakpour, adding that the details will be later released to the public.

He further referred to the plots by enemies at southeastern and western borders of Iran for infiltrating the country, adding “Saudi Arabia and the US attempt to organize and strengthen terror teams and counter-revolutionaries around Iran who have been rendered weak for years by Iranian forces.”

He also noted a number of other arrests and neutralization of several terrorist acts at the borders and inside the county in the past few days, saying “these terror teams that had been planning to target people in central cities with heavy ammunition were all busted by Intelligence Ministry’s ‘Anonymous Forces’.”
