TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said the country’s special services conducted a special operation in Grodno and seized weapons and explosives that were going to be used for terrorist attacks on officials and people.
"Special services have done a brilliant job. A whole arsenal of weapons and explosives has been seized, which was intended for high-profile terrorist attacks on citizens and officials of government agencies," Lukashenko said on Tuesday as he met with the country’s top security officials, the BelTA news agency reported on its Telegram channel.
"So, our guys have done a good job: In a difficult situation like that, when terrorists used grenades and weapons, not a single Alfa Group operative was killed. Good operation, good job," he added, TASS reported.
He said it was "another message."
"We need to be ready for any events," Lukashenko said.
