Iran Says It Arrested Spy Ring for Attempted Nuclear Sabotage

A spy network connected to Israeli intelligence was arrested by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps for attempting to sabotage the Fordow nuclear enrichment facility, the state-run Islamic Republic news agency reported Monday.

The attempted attack, which the IRGC described as a “major” sabotage attempt against an Iranian nuclear facility, was intended to be carried out before March 21, the Persian new year. The operation involved an employee at Fordow cooperating with Israeli intelligence officers in exchange for cash and digital currency, according to IRNA.
