Iranian intelligence arrested people it believes are involved in a "Zionist spy institution website" on Monday.

Iranian Intelligence Minister Heidar Moslehi told reporters on Sunday that the Born to Freedom Foundation, which offers rewards to those who have information regarding captive IAF navigator Ron Arad, is actually a website meant to recruit Muslim spies for Israel.

"The foundation seeks to people for intelligence missions in Islamic countries," Moslehi explained. "Iran has managed to arrest many individuals deceived by the foundation."

Moslehi said that "those deceived by the website of the spy institution, if they yield to police forces by February 11 and cooperate with our intelligence service, their punishments will be commuted."

"The Zionist regime has run the institution inside the Islamic Republic of Iran and neighboring states for some 20 years, under a humanitarian cover," he added.
