(Article 18)— An Iranian news agency linked to the Revolutionary Guard Corps has reported the arrest of a “network” of Christians in “several provinces” for “creating moral deviations” and “promoting [religious] conversion.”
According to the report, published by Fars News Agency on Saturday, the “Zionist” group was “dismantled” in a coordinated operation, though there is no indication of the number of Christians arrested, nor when or where the arrests took place.
The report accuses “Christian-affiliated networks” of “extensive” efforts against Iran’s national security over the past two years.
There are currently at least 15 Christians in prison in Iran for alleged “actions against national security” — because of their membership or leadership of house-churches.
