According to the Fars news agency, Iran has arrested 10 Israeli spies in the province of west Azerbaijan. It said, referring to the Israeli intelligence service, “Mossad officers were in direct video communication with these individuals.”
Israel and Iran have always been rivals. Iran claims Israel has killed several Iranian leaders, while Israel accuses Iran of supporting militant assaults against it.
Israel neither confirms nor refutes claims of these actions.
“They set fire to cars and homes of people affiliated with the security apparatus and received cash for taking photos, which they sent to Mossad agents,” said Fars, without elaborating.
