Iran occasionally says it has dismantled Western spying networks in the country and announces arrests of individuals on espionage charges.


Tehran accuses Israel and the US of spying on its vital interests, particularly its nuclear program, which

the West suspects is aimed at producing an atomic weapon. Tehran denies the charge.


Both Israel and the US have not ruled out a military option against Iran's nuclear facilities.
