Bahrain captures 116 underground Iranian network members

The country of Bahrain announced that it had rounded up some 116 members of an armed network established and supported by Iran’s revolutionary guard, suspected of plotting attacks on Bahraini government officials and security forces. The interior ministry in Bahrain said in a statement, investigators found sites used by the militants to manufacture and store explosives intended to be used for “terrorist attacks”. Bahraini TV showed police and forensic teams uncovering and taking inventory of items seized in their raid, including explosives materials, automatic weapons, pistols, magnetic bombs and grenades. The statement said 48 of the 116-people arrested had received training at Iranian facilities belonging to the revolutionary guard in Iran and their affiliated locations in Iraq and Lebanon. Iran’s Foreign Ministry did not react to TV7’s request for comment.
