Iran Claims to Have Busted Web-Based CIA ‘Spy Network’
According to recent mainstream reports, Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence claims that the country has “dealt a heavy blow against America’s international spy network.”
Tehran announced that it had identified a network of spies who were using a proprietary online communications platform, presumably run by the CIA, used to operate a “big spy network”. Iranian authorities claim to have already “dismantled” the American agents’ cyber espionage network, according to reports this week by state-run IRNA news agency.
“We have intelligence allies and we exchange information with them. Currently we are engaged in the battle of intelligence with the United States. In this battle we should use ours and our allies capabilities.”
‘“The CIA in an expansive espionage system designed a website and a special space for each of the spies,” it added, citing the director of anti-espionage at the intelligence ministry.
Iranian National Security Secretary Ali Shamkhani mentioned the counter-espionage effort during a diplomatic trip to Russia, citing documents from Iran’s national security operations against the CIA, according IRNA.
US officials dismissed Iran’s claims of dealing a “heavy blow” to the CIA’s ongoing clandestine operations to destablize the government of Iran.
Earlier in April 2019, Iran made similar claims which were reported by Iranian news outlet Mehr News Agency.
This latest claim comes amid heightened tensions between Washington and Tehran over the oil tanker incidents in the Persian Gulf, and also Iran resuming pre-JCPOA uranium enrichment levels following Donald Trump’s unilateral withdrawal from the P5+1 international nuclear agreement last year.
Tensions may be set to rise even higher after the US also announced plans this week to deploy a carrier strike group and bombers, as well as plans to deploy 1,500 new troops to the Middle East.
