Iran’s Revolutionary Guards yesterday said they had arrested a person they claimed had ties to Israel’s intelligence agency Mossad, the semi-official Fars news agency reported.

The alleged spy was arrested in the southeastern province of Kerman, a Revolutionary Guards statement claimed without specifying the alleged spy’s nationality or when he was arrested.

The Israeli Prime Minister’s office has not commented on the statement.
