According to the news release of the Ministry of Intelligence of Iran, the forces of the Islamic Republic “attacked several bases of terrorists, as a result of which 28 members of ISIS were arrested”.
Based on the statement from the Ministry of Intelligence of Iran, the detained people affiliated with ISIS, some of them have a history of accompanying “Takfiris in Syria or presence in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraqi Kurdistan”.
The Ministry of Intelligence of Iran added that the purpose of these bombings was to “smash the security authority and present an unstable image of the Islamic Republic and create despair, panic in the society and incite protests” at the same time as the anniversary of last year’s protests.
