Iran claims arrest of 12 US spies
An Iranian lawmaker said Thursday that officials in Iran and Lebanon have arrested 12 CIA "spies" who intended to a "deal a strong blow" to Iran, state media reported.
Parliamentarian Parviz Sorouri said the alleged spies were trying to cripple Iran in nuclear, military and security areas, said Iran's official IRNA news agency.
The report did not say when the suspects were arrested or add details about the arrests.
Earlier this week, a U.S. official confirmed to CNN that informants that worked with the CIA had been captured in Lebanon. The official would not say how many informants were arrested.
...This report seems to be an admission that Hezballah is a wing of the Iranian government. It is a proxy force against the US and Israel. Its primary objective in case of an attack on Iran is to launch rocket attacks on Israel.
