Bahrain: Terror Plot Linked to Iran and Hezbollah Foiled


DUBAI – Bahrain said on Wednesday it had caught an Iranian-linked cell plotting attacks on its territory, days after it followed its close ally Saudi Arabia in cutting ties with Iran.

There was no immediate reaction from Iran on the terror plot claim, caught up in a mounting diplomatic dispute with its regional rival Saudi Arabia and other Sunni-led Gulf states including Bahrain.

“A secret terrorist plot aided by the so-called Iranian Revolutionary Guard and the Hezbollah terrorist organization was foiled,” the Gulf island kingdom’s state news agency BNA reported.
