IS-Linked Extremist Arrested in Tehran for Allegedly Plotting Terror Attacks

TEHRAN – A commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard announced on Wednesday that a suspected member of a group affiliated with the Islamic State terror organization had been arrested on suspicion of planning terror attacks in Tehran.

At a press conference, Amin Yamini said the extremist was being questioned after he was arrested in the Shahriar area of Tehran in an intelligence operation.

Iran’s news agency Mehr quoted the commander as saying that the detainee was part of the IS-affiliated group Ajnad al-Sham.

Yamini added that Ajnad al-Sham intended to carry out 300 terror attacks in the Iranian capital during the Islamic month of Muharram, to begin on Sept. 22.

Iranian forces have detained and killed dozens of suspected extremists since the double bombing of the Iranian parliament and the tomb of Imam Khomeini in Tehran in June that left 17 people dead and more than 50 wounded.
