German Police Arrest Iranians Monitoring Israeli Targets

BERLIN -

Ten Iranians have been arrested in searches conducted by German Police’s Special Forces in Berlin, Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria and North Rhine-Westphalia, German media source, FOCUS, reported at midday on Tuesday.

German security forces raided a number of houses to apprehend the Iranian agents, members of the notorious Quds Brigade, accused of monitoring Israeli targets across the country. This brigade provides assassination teams for the Iranian intelligence service Vevak, and also liquidates dissidents on behalf of the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas.

In September 1992 they murdered four Iranian exiled politicians in  the Mykonos restaurant in Berlin at the behest of Iran’s intelligence body. The incident led to a temporary breakdown in German-Iranian relations.
