In less than a month at least 2 spy groups were arrested (there may be more that we don't know about). One was a Russian spy group consisting of 6 members with the aim of armed assault, military and political espionage. They were caught with weapons, equipment, money and their documents. The second is the Iranian group of 8 people which were tasked to smuggle an ex-Iranian military personnel. The group had a 30.000 $ budget in order to create a spy network in and around Van city so the hijack operation is successful. Both out intelligence and counter-intelligence are working on a very good level.
