Iraq arrests '\'terrorists linked to Iran'\'
Iraqi security authorities announced Tuesday the arrest of two "terrorists linked to Iran," saying the pair would make public confessions, the official INA news agency revealed.
"Hamza Qassem Sabbat, alias Abu Haitham, and Ibrahim Abd Jassem Mohammad, alias Abu Ayyub, would divulge "the terrorist actions carried out by the agencies of the Iranian regime which are in tune with enemy goals against our country's security," a statement from the public security department said.
Iraq's security services managed to infiltrate "the labyrinths of treason thanks to a well-studied security plan and to strike at terror and its perpetrators," the statement added.
Since the end of its 1980-1988 war with Iran, Iraq has regularly reported attacks and acts of sabotage on its territory, attributing them to Tehran or "Iranian agents." (Albawaba.com)
