Iranian security forces have busted a terrorist network in the central province of Isfahan, arresting 21 terrorists and counterrevolutionary people, authorities have said.

Asadollah Jafari, Chief Justice of Isfahan Province, said on Friday that eight terrorists were arrested in the province ahead of ceremonies to commemorate the 45th anniversary of the glorious victory of Iran's Islamic Revolution in February.

In line with the fight against terrorists and counterrevolutionary groups, intelligence forces in Isfahan detained 13 terrorists and seized large amounts of ammunition and weapons, including 55 hand-made bombs, he added.

The official noted that enemies have been making their utmost efforts to harm the Iranian nation in recent years but it enjoys endurable peace thanks to vigilance of the security forces.

Jafari said Iranian security forces are trying hard to fight all types of terrorism, acts of sabotage and organized thugs and counter cyber attacks and any threat against the country's security as well as safeguard ethnic and religious groups.

Back in January, Iranian Judiciary authorities executed four people convicted of working for the Israeli Mossad spy agency and plotting a bomb attack against a Defense Ministry factory in the country’s central province of Isfahan.

They were planning to carry out a bombing operation against an installation in Najafabad city, which is manufacturing military equipment and missile components for the Defense Ministry, on July 23, 2022.

However, they were identified and captured by the Iranian intelligence forces a few days before the plotted act of terror.
