Iranian security forces prevent terrorist attack

Secretary of Iran's Expediency Council (EC) Mohsen Rezayee disclosed that the country's security forces have captured a number of ISIL terrorists who plotted to carry out suicide attacks at the University of Tehran.

"The ISIL has entered Iran but our security and Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) forces have detained a large number of them," Rezayee said, addressing a gathering in Tehran on Tuesday night.

"Three months ago, this group sought to carry out suicide operations at the University of Tehran during the Friday prayers but they were arrested on their way between Hamedan and Kurdistan provinces. They were due to be equipped with bombs in Tehran to carry out their mission," Farsnews cited him as saying.
