Tehran, Nov 25(ANI): Iran has arrested 12 Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) operatives for allegedly targeting the country's miltary and nuclear programme.

 

A lawmaker, Parviz Sorouri, said the agents were collaborating with Israel's Mossad and other regional agencies to achieve ther aim, the BBC reports.

 

The arrest comes in the wake of the United States and its allies suspecting that Iran is pursuing a nuclear weapon program, which is vehemently denied by Tehran.

 

"The US and Zionist regime's espionage apparatuses were trying to use regional intelligence services, both inside and outside Iran, in order to deal a strong blow to our country," a National Security and Foreign Policy Committee member Sorouri was quoted as saying.

 

"Fortunately, these steps failed due to the quick measures taken by Intelligence Ministry officials," he added.

 

Lebanon's shia miltant group, Hezbollah, which has close ties with Iran, had earlier reportedly busted a CIA spy ring within the Shia militant organisation.

 

Hezbollah Member of Parliament Hassan Fadlallah had backed his organization's claim.ran had earlier arrested 30 people after busting a CIA spy network in May.(ANI)
