High ranking intelligence official has said that Iran has arrested two ISIS terrorists in the country’s western province of Hamadan.

According to the province’s intelligence director general, the two Iranian nationals with links to the Daesh terrorist group were caught during two separate intelligence operations while en route to Tehran, IRINN reported on Sunday.

On Friday, Iran's Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alavi announced that Iran had dismantled more than 20 terrorist groups that had planned to detonate bombs and cause insecurity across the country during the last Iranian calendar year (ended on March 19). He added that a large amount of weapons and ammunition was confiscated from the terrorists.

Alavi said that Daesh seeks to hatch plots against the Islamic Republic from its de facto capital Raqqah in Syria, but any terrorist team which headed to Iran fell prey to Iranian security forces.
