Iranian Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alavi said Iranian security forces discovered 75 organized terror groups in the country.

The discoveries were made over a period of two years, and included the confiscation of 108 bombs which attach via magnets to their targets and 15 explosive belts.

According to Alavi, security forces in February arrested 8 Sunni activists who planned to disrupt the events in honor of the 38th anniversary of the Iranian revolution.

None of those arrested are Iranian citizens, and some are connected to Sunni terror groups, most notably the ISIS.
