Iran claimed on Tuesday that it had arrested Mossad agents who were planning to assassinate nuclear scientists in the country. The announcement did not detail the alleged agents’ nationalities or how many people had been detained. There were no further details given on the alleged plot. “The arrest of these Mossad operatives came after a complicated intelligence operation that lasted for eight months of monitoring them,” said Mehdi Shamsabadi, the prosecutor general of Sistan-Baluchistan province, according to Iran’s Mehr News. Shamsabadi said the investigation was ongoing and that the individuals would be charged in the near future. “The case is currently in the preliminary investigation stage and an indictment will be issued and sent to the court soon,” he said, according to the state-run Islamic Republic News Agency.
