Bahrain arrests Iran-linked terrorists, seizes weapons and explosives


Dammam – Bahrain arrested Iran-linked terrorists and foiled a planned attack. While Iranian weapons and explosives were seized from the attackers, its Interior Ministry announced on Monday.

Ministry tweeted, “As part of efforts to protect national security, a proactive security operation in cooperation with the National Intelligence Agency, the CID: Terrorists arrested for plotting terrorist operations against security and civil peace”.

“Weapons and explosives from Iran were seized” from the group who “are linked with terrorist groups in Iran,” the brief statement said.

In 2020, Bahrain said it had foiled a terrorist attack backed by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

Iran played a major catastrophe role in Bahrain during the 2012 uprising, which was successfully confronted by Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.
