TEHRAN -- Iran has arrested 10 people in a southern province, who are linked to foreign intelligence services, the official IRNA news agency reported.
The report said Iran’s intelligence agency arrested the 10 after “sophisticated and continuous” surveillance in Bushehr province.
The 10 worked for “regional” countries whose intelligence services acted as accomplices and proxies for the spy agencies of “hostile countries,” the news agency reported, a reference to the occupying regime of Israel and the U.S. The report said the 10 people were Iranian expatriates in the regional countries.
Bushehr is home to Iran’s sole nuclear power plant that went online in 2011 with help from Russia. In July, Iran said authorities arrested members of a group linked to Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency amid ongoing protests over water shortages in the country’s southwest.
In 2019, Iran said it arrested 17 Iranians accused of spying on the country’s nuclear and military sites for the CIA and reported that some of them had been sentenced to death.

In July 2020, Iran executed a former translator convicted of spying on its forces for the U.S. and the occupying regime of Israel, including helping to locate top Iranian commander General Qassem Soleimani who was martyred later in a U.S. drone strike.
In February 2020, Iran’s top court confirmed a death sentence for an Iranian man convicted of spying for the CIA, with local media saying that he had shared details of the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program with the American spy agency.
Late last year, Iran released Australian-British academic Kylie Moore-Gilbert, who was serving a 10-year prison sentence for spying for Israel, in exchange for three Iranians.
