The Russian Embassy in Iran called rumors about the plans of one of the organizations whose leader was detained by the Iranian security forces to commit a terrorist attack in the Russian Consulate General.
“The Embassy does not comment on unverified rumors,” the source told.
Earlier, the Iranian state TV and radio company IRIB, without specifying the source of information, reported that the organization “Tondar,” whose leader was detained by the Iranian security services, was planning a terrorist attack in the Russian Consulate General in Rasht. When the attack was planned, the IRIB also does not indicate.
This information appeared after the Ministry of information (intelligence) of Iran announced the detention of the leader of the organization “Tondar” Jamshid Sharmahd. According to the Agency, the organization operated from the United States and carried out a number of terrorist attacks, planned other operations in Iran.
According to the TV and radio company IRIB, the organization’s plans included a terrorist attack in the Russian Consulate General in Rasht, but, the TV and radio company notes, the Iranian security services prevented these actions.
Earlier it was reported that the organization “Tondar” (“Shah’s Association of Iran”), is behind the explosion in one of the mosques in Shiraz in 2008, when at least 14 people were killed and about 200 were injured, as well as other subversive activities aimed at the existing system in Iran.
“Tondar,” called by Iran a terrorist group, stands for the monarchical system in Iran, which ceased to exist after the Islamic revolution in 1979.
