TEHRAN - The Intelligence Ministry on Saturday released details of the detection and dismantling of a terrorist network affiliated to the United States.
In a coordinated operation on May 7, Iranian intelligence agents arrested the terrorist network's members, who were identified in Fars, Khuzestan, Gilan, West Azerbaijan, and Tehran provinces, the Intelligence Ministry announcement said.
The group's plans were devised in the U.S., according to the announcement, which added that they had planned to carry out a number of acts such as bombing scientific, educational, and religious centers, shooting people, and making public places in various cities insecure.
One of the terrorists was killed in the operation, but the rest are in detention, the Intelligence Ministry said, adding that the group's main objective was to create fear among the people.
The United States Central Intelligence Agency comprehensively supported the terrorist group by arming it, training its members, and sponsoring its inhumane activities in Iran, the Intelligence Ministry stated.
The terrorists had maps, films, pictures, and sketches of important and sensitive sites in various cities in their possession when they were arrested.
They also had a large number of weapons and ammunition and a great deal of highly explosive chemicals and cyanide.
The blast at a religious center in Shiraz last month was carried out by this group, and it also had plans to carry out similar attacks on the Tehran International Book Fair, the Russian Consulate in Gilan Province, oil pipelines in southern Iran, and other targets, the communiquÃ© stated.
Thirteen people were killed and over 190 others wounded in a bombing carried out on April 12 at the Rahpuyan-e Vessal religious center, which is part of the Seyyed-ul-Shohada Mosque complex, located in a residential area of Shiraz.

Of course, you know that the U.S. does this sort of stuff. It's all been documented before. Therefore, when the U.S. denies such actions, the denial must be taken with more than a grain of salt.
Stirring up trouble so the U.S. can overthrow others or go to war against them is standard operating procedure.
It's all so that the richest capitalist may invade markets, steal resources, and negatively exploit labor. It's gangsterism on the Empire scale. That's why the U.S. is the current top head of the Beast in the Biblical sense.
Power is shifting though, because the American laborer was getting to much power and the American people came to demand more environmentalism, safety, and sharing the wealth.
Even though Nixon and Reagan and their followers ruined much of that (New Deal and Great Society), they weren't able to destroy it enough. Trying to much would have resulted in a revolution in the U.S.
Rather than tempt that, they just did "free-trade agreements" and made offers to the poor nations those nations weren't allowed to refuse. They saddled them with debt agreements requiring that those nations giveaway their resources and labor. They put puppet dictators in place who were glad to sellout their countrymen for money, luxury, and power.
Anyone not willing to go along was overthrown and murdered if he fought back too hard.
Of course, the U.S. isn't the only head on the Beast.
