TEHRAN, Jan. 10 (MNA) – Iran intelligence forces managed to identify and detain 13 members of 2 Mossad spying teams across the country.

In Tehran, Isfahan, Yazd, West Azarbaijan, and Golestan, 23 operative and support elements were identified, and 13 people (who were present inside the country) were arrested, according to the ministry's statement.

Various types of operating equipment were also seized from them, the statement added.

With the arrest of these two teams, the number of Mossad teams detained in Iran during the recent month has increased to six.
