Daesh (ISIS) is seeking to radicalize disaffected ethnic minorities in majority-Shiite Iran to encourage attacks intended to avenge Tehran's offensive against the group across the Middle East.On Aug. 9, Daesh issued a video threatening new attacks in Iran and calling on young Iranians to rise up and launch "jihad" in their country.But its heaviest propaganda swipe at Iran came with a 40-minute documentary in March that attacked Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei as a friend of the West and featured Baluchi, Persian and Ahwazi fighters urging attacks inside Iran. Iran has arrested at least 100 people linked to Daesh since the attack.Days earlier, Iranian media said Iran's Revolutionary Guard had killed two people in clashes with a group of militants in the northwest of the country, where shootouts with Iranian Kurdish militant groups based in Iraq are common.In June, Iran announced the arrests of members of a group linked to Daesh, which was planning suicide attacks.
