The Iranian intelligence forces have arrested 27 "terrorist" suspects before they could carry out terror activities in the country, Iran's Intelligence Ministry announced Monday.

Iranian security forces managed to identify and arrest the suspects before their terrorist attacks during the holy month of Ramadan and the international Quds Day last Friday, the ministry was quoted as saying by Tasnim News Agency.

The Iranian forces also confiscated some grenades and bombs, explosive materials, handguns and Kalashnikov rifles from the suspects, it said.

"The terrorists intended to carry out their acts of sabotage in capital Tehran and some other major cities to create chaos and insecurity in the country," it added.
