Official: Iran Has Inside Men in Enemy Spy Agencies

(FNA) ~ A senior Iranian official revealed that the country’s intelligence agents have found a way into the spy agencies of those countries that have taken a hard line on the Islamic Republic.

“We have infiltrated the enemy’s spy agencies,” Chief of the Supreme Leader’s Office for Ideological and Political Affairs Hojjatoleslam Gholamreza Safayee said in Tehran on Tuesday.

Safayee did not disclose any further details, citing the secret nature of the operation.

Yet, he said that the capture of the executed ringleader of Jundollah terrorist group four years ago was the result of the same inside job in the secret services of the enemies.

In relevant remarks in August, Iranian Intelligence Minister Seyed Mahmoud Alavi warned that the western, Israeli and certain regional countries’ spy agencies had hatched plots to create insecurity in Iran.

“The intelligence services of the US, Israel, Mossad, MI6 and certain regional states are making attempts to challenge the Islamic Republic’s security and it is hard for them to see that the sound of blasts is heard in any corner of the world but not in the Islamic Republic and to see that it is a secure island,” Alavi said in an interview with the state TV.

He also referred to the attempts made by terrorist groups, including the Takfiri terrorists, to harm the Islamic Republic’s security, and said fortunately the Iranian security forces’ intelligence superiority and efforts thwarted all their plots.

Also, in March, top Military Aide to the Iranian Supreme Leader Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi said agents of some 17 foreign spy agencies have sought to foment dissent and unrest in Iran’s oil-rich Southwestern province of Khuzestan.

General Rahim Safavi said that “17 regional and trans-regional intelligence services affiliated to the Arab and western states” are running operations “in support of ethnic separatist groups to sow discord among the local people” in Khuzestan.

He said “the Arab and European secret services are supporting separatist groups with financial and political backups” to stir unrest through fomenting sectarian strife in the bordering province.

In relevant remarks in January, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei underlined that the enemy’s intelligence agencies were behind the plots hatched against Muslims.

“The hands that sow discord among Shiites and Sunnis are linked to the spy services of the enemies of Islam,” said the Supreme Leader in a meeting with a group of people and the delegates who participated in the Islamic Unity Conference Tehran.

Ayatollah Khamenei reiterated that the Western-style teachings alleged to be Islamic were in fact against Islam.

“The (so-called) Shiism linked to the UK’s MI6 is not real Shiite Islam, nor is the (so-called) Sunnism, but they are both are against Islam,” the Supreme Leader said.

Ayatollah Khamenei, meantime, called on the Muslim nations to close ranks and foster their unity.

The Supreme Leader noted that certain Middle East states which were pursuing a hostile approach vis-à-vis Iran had set foot in the wrong path.

“Some regional countries have based their foreign policies on observing animosity against Iran, but that is a big mistake and contradictory to the rule of sound mind and rationalism,” Ayatollah Khamenei said, adding, “Establishment of friendly relations with Muslim and neighboring countries is the basis of the Iranian foreign policy”.
