Authorities in the kingdom of Bahrain say they have arrested 116 members of an armed militant network that was established and supported by Iranian regime.
The Interior Ministry said the alleged militants planned to “target Bahraini officials, members of the security authorities, and vital oil installations with the objective of disturbing public security and harming the national economy.”
“Comprehensive investigations revealed the suspected terrorists were members of a network formed and supported by” Iran regime’s Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), the ministry said in a statement.
It said 48 of those detained had received training in camps belonging to Iran’s IRGC and its armed wings in Iraq and Lebanon.
It said the IRGC and its affiliates, the Shi’ite militias Asa’ib Ahl al-Haq in Iraq and Hizballah in Lebanon, supported and financed the organization.
The Interior Ministry said police also seized explosives and weapons in their raids, including automatic assault rifles, pistols, magnetic bombs, and grenades.
It did not say when the arrests had been made.
