The Iranian Revolutionary Guard killed a team of terrorists Monday that were working under the orders of "foreign spying services," Iran's official IRNA news agency reported.
The Revolutionary Guard did not specify which countries' foreign intelligence services were behind the terrorists.
The Revolutionary Guard tracked the terrorists for days before locating them and killing them in the Qasr Qand and Nik Shahr districts in southeast Iran, IRNA reported.
The terrorists were found to be carrying "a remarkable amount" of weapons and equipment, the report added.
Iran claimed in August that it had shot down an Israeli spy drone that was heading for its Natanz nuclear enrichment site.
In the past, Iran has often accused its Western and Israeli foes of trying to sabotage its nuclear program, which Tehran says is peaceful.
Iran has accused Israel and its allies in the West of assassinating its nuclear scientists and attacking its nuclear sites with computer viruses.
Israel has always declined comment on such accusations, saying that it does not comment on foreign reports.Reuters contributed to this report
