The agency clarified that Israeli spies were carrying “heavy loads of weapons and ammunition”: grenades, shotguns, rifles, pistols and cartridges for them. According to intelligence officers, the agents intended to commit a terrorist act in one of the Iranian cities. Locals helped to calculate them, to whom some “suspicious people” offered money in exchange for assistance in the crime.
