Iranian Intelligence Minister Seyed Mahmoud Alavi disclosed that his ministry has defused several attempts by Takfiri militant groups to carry out terrorist operations in Tehran and other cities across the country.

"The ISIL had plans to launch terrorist attacks in five regional countries and only Iran managed to identify and arrest the saboteurs before they could conduct their terrorist activities," Alavi said in an interview with the state TV on Monday night.

He pointed to dismantling a five-member group in the Southeastern parts of the country, and said, "A five-member group which intended to explode a district in the port city of Chabahar was identified and crushed."

The intelligence minister also pointed to disbanding a Takfiri terrorist group in Western Iran, and said, "A Takfiri group in the city of Saqez in Kurdistan province intended to launch suicide attacks last year, but its members were arrested and the group was dismantled."

He also said that another terrorist group which had kidnapped an Iranian international fencer and intended to carry out another suicide attack in the city of Mashhad, in Northeastern Iran was also destroyed.

He further referred to identification and annihilation of a Takfiri group which intended to launch suicide attacks in Tehran.

"Abu Habs Azizi, the leader of another Takfiri terrorist group, who had killed a number of teachers and Basij members in Sistan and Balouchestan province was identified and arrested last year," he added.

Alavi warned that the western, Israeli and certain regional countries' spy agencies have hatched plots to create insecurity in Iran.

"The intelligence services of the US, Israel, Mossad, MI6 and certain regional states are making attempts to challenge the Islamic Republic's security and it is hard for them to see that the sound of blasts is heard in any corner of the world but not in the Islamic Republic and to see that it is a secure island," Alavi said.

He also referred to the continued attempts made by terrorist groups, including the Takfiri terrorists, to harm the Islamic Republic's security, and said fortunately the Iranian security forces' intelligence superiority and efforts have thwarted all their plots.

In relevant remarks in March, top Military Aide to the Iranian Supreme Leader Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi said agents of some 17 foreign spy agencies have sought to foment dissent and unrest in Iran's oil-rich Southwestern province of Khuzestan.

General Rahim Safavi said that "17 regional and trans-regional intelligence services affiliated to the Arab and western states" are running operations "in support of ethnic separatist groups to sow discord among the local people" in Khuzestan.

He said "the Arab and European secret services are supporting separatist groups with financial and political backups" to stir unrest through fomenting sectarian strife in the bordering province.

In relevant remarks in January, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei underlined that the enemy’s intelligence agencies were behind the plots hatched against Muslims.

"The hands that sow discord among Shiites and Sunnis are linked to the spy services of the enemies of Islam,” said the Supreme Leader in a meeting with a group of people and the delegates who participated in the Islamic Unity Conference Tehran.

Ayatollah Khamenei reiterated that the Western-style teachings alleged to be Islamic were in fact against Islam.

“The (so-called) Shiism linked to the UK’s MI6 is not real Shiite Islam, nor is the (so-called) Sunnism, but they are both are against Islam,” the Supreme Leader said.

Ayatollah Khamenei, meantime, called on the Muslim nations to close ranks and foster their unity.

The Supreme Leader noted that certain Middle East states which were pursuing a hostile approach vis-à-vis Iran had set foot in the wrong path.

"Some regional countries have based their foreign policies on observing animosity against Iran, but that is a big mistake and contradictory to the rule of sound mind and rationalism," Ayatollah Khamenei said, adding, "Establishment of friendly relations with Muslim and neighboring countries is the basis of the Iranian foreign policy."
