Iran detains Islamic State group leader near Tehran

13 Septembre 2017

The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps announced on Wednesday it has arrested a member of Daesh and foiled a plan for suicide attacks.

The Daesh member had planned to organize about 300 people to carry out suicide attacks, Yamini said, according to Basij Press.

IS claimed responsibility for attacks in Tehran that killed 17 people at the parliament and the mausoleum of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in June.

Iran has blamed Saudi Arabia for being behind the deadly attacks.

The Revolutionary Guards fired several missiles at Islamic State bases in Syria on June 18 in response to that attack.

According to Yamini, the Guards tracked the Daesh organiser, who had a cell phone and satellite phone, and set up a meeting with him in the western Tehran suburb of Andisheh by posing as Daesh members.

Members of the elite Revolutionary Guard detained the suspect in a town near Tehran, according to the report, which did not identify the suspect.

"So far, very important information has been collected from the IS element's phone, and he remains under investigation", he said.
