cia agent arrested in iran

Iran has arrested 12 people who claim that they work undercover for the CIA in the Islamic republic, further increasing tensions in the already tense relations with the United States.

Last Wednesday, the state IRNA news agency quoted a senior Iranian official said that the spy said they had arrested was to gather information from the security interests of Iran and military units and highly sensitive nuclear program.

"The primary mission of spying, is associated with the progress of Iran's nuclear technology and military and security activities," said Parviz Sorour, a member of the parliamentary committee for national security and foreign policy, supported by quotations from news agency IRNA.

Sorour told the agent that the network is found by an operation in which the Iranian Intelligence Ministry. "The United States and the Zionist regime has been trying to spy on Iran's facilities both inside and outside with heavy blows, using the intelligence area," he said. "Fortunately, the rapid response of the Iranian secret service, the actions that produce fruit."

Sorour's comments followed a report Monday that Iran and the Lebanese Shiite militia Hezbollah has been suspected CIA informant identified.

Hezbollah leader, Hassan Nasrallah, said in June that his group has at least two informants of the CIA revealed in it, but his statement was greeted with skepticism at the time. But former U.S. officials told Reuters this week that prisoners actually worked for the CIA. Officials said the agents were "local recruits have to work 'for the CIA, not U.S. citizens.

Iran does not specify the nationality of those arrested and the CIA declined to comment on recent reports, saying "no, as usual to discuss the allegations operation".

In October, escalating tensions between Tehran and Washington after the U.S. military authorities said that factions within the regime was conspiring to assassinate the Saudi ambassador in Washington. Iran has denied the allegations and an Iranian diplomat told the Guardian that the U.S. has been using a technique called "trap" for the spread of Tehran in the eyes of the international community. U.S. allegations have been widespread skepticism because of the nature of the alleged assassination plot data and limited clutter from the United States.

In a tit for tat response in November, Iranian officials accused the United States to terrorism in the Islamic republic. Iran has said that at the time of making the United States was behind the "terrorist" operation in Iran, including the assassination of nuclear scientists have been.

"We can not beat the 100 documents about the U.S. role in directing terrorism and terrorists in Iran and the region," said supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. "With the release of these documents, we dishonor the United States and those who support human rights defenders and the fight against terrorism is one of the world public opinion." Iran believes that having the documents to the UN, but gave them to the media.

In recent years, Iran's nuclear program has undergone a dramatic series of setbacks after the assassination of scientists and Stuxnet worm, designed to sabotage of nuclear facilities and uranium enrichment program to stop. This month, an explosion at a military base near Tehran had killed the architect of Iran's missile program. Iran has given the finger to the United States and Israel for what is widely regarded as a secret war against the country's nuclear program and its military capabilities.
