Iran busts Mossad spy network planning to target defense ind.

TEHRAN, Dec. 19 (MNA) – Iran’s Intelligence Ministry has identified and arrested members of a spy network who were planning to sabotage the country’s defense industry through front companies and security marketing.

Iran’s intelligence forces uncovered a plot by a Mossad espionage network to gather information from Iranian knowledge-based companies that cooperate with Iran’s defense industries.

The Israeli regime’s Mossad spy agency hired data broker Frank Genin, who introduced himself as the chief of a spare parts manufacturer company and was able to contact several Iranian companies and employees, Press TV reported.

The Mossad agent then invited his coworkers to a seminar in Malaysia, where he introduced them to another Mossad agent, Hadrien Lavaux.

As a cover-up, Lavaux has been the managing director of Triple A Industries, an Aerospace advanced alloys and composites company that was established in Singapore in 2017. Since then, the company started communicating with Iranian companies that provide carbon fibers, resin, and other metal alloys.

It is worth mentioning that Triple A Industries’ website says that Frank Genin is the chairman of the company, which explains the close cooperation between Genin and Lavaux.

Lavaux’s associates in Iran attended different exhibitions, monitored scientific conferences, and identified the latest needs of Iran’s defense industries.

According to the report, they later began to identify the chiefs, salespersons, and important employees in companies that are active in the field of defense industries. These employees were invited to multiple front conferences abroad, including in Turkey, Hungary, Oman, and Georgia, and their trips were fully covered.

However, Iran’s intelligence forces had kept a close eye on these trips and were able to track down the network.

Mossad has upped its espionage activity in the past few months and has been involved in a covert war against Iran by supporting terrorist attacks and violent riots across the country.

Iran’s foes, mainly the Israeli regime and the US, have also been engaged in an attempt to spy on and sabotage Iran’s defense industry.
