Iran expanded its terrorist activities to Africa where it has recruited an estimated 300 militants to attack the United States and other Western targets in retaliation for American sanctions against Tehran, the Daily Telegraph reported Monday.

The U.S. has deemed Iran the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.

“Iran is setting up a new terrorist infrastructure in Africa with the aim of attacking Western targets,” an unnamed senior Western security source told the Telegraph. “It is all part of Tehran’s attempts to expand its terrorist operations across the globe.”

Details about the existence of Iran’s terror cell in Africa reportedly surfaced after a series of arrests in Chad in April.

Investigators reportedly learned that Iranian operatives are recruiting and training men between the ages of 25 and 35 to carry out terror attacks against Western targets in Africa.

Iran has already recruited an estimated 300 militants who have “have undergone rigorous training at Iranian-run training camps in Syria and Iraq,” the Telegraph noted.
