Iran's Intelligence Ministry said that it has thwarted a bombing plan by a banned Kurdish rebel group, the official IRNA news agency reported on Thursday.

Three members of the rebel group "Komeleh", which is identified as a terrorist group by the Iranian authorities, were planning for a bombing attack in one of the plants belonging to Iran's Defense Ministry in Tehran.

They were identified and arrested before they could commit any crime, the report said quoting the Public Relations Department of Iran's Intelligence Ministry.

They have planted two 12-kg bombs in the loudspeakers and some weapons were seized from their hideout, the report said.

According to the state-run IRIB TV, agents of Iran's Intelligence Ministry had recently killed four members of "Komeleh terrorist grouplet in an ambush," in western part of the country.

Some of Iran's western provinces were the hotbed of frequent armed clashes between Iran's security forces and Kurdish militant rebels.
