Iran’s Intelligence Ministry claims to have busted a Mossad spy ring in the country, arresting at least 13 people.
Fars News reports the group was planning the assassination of a military official and various acts of sabotage.
It says equipment used by the alleged spies was also confiscated.
Iran occasionally reports arrests of Israeli spies, though the validity of such claims cannot be confirmed.
