Iran executes man convicted of spying for the CIA and Israel’s Mossad
BREAKING: Iran has executed a man convicted of spying for the CIA and Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency.
Mahmoud Mousavi-Majd was accused of reporting on the movements of Iranian terrorists in Syria and of spying on the Revolutionary Guards terror group chief, arch-terrorist Qasem Soleimani.
A spokeswoman for Iran’s judiciary told a news conference earlier this month that the former translator had spied “on various security fields, especially the armed forces and the Quds Force and the whereabouts and movements of Soleimani.”
Soleimani was eliminated last January in a US drone strike at Baghdad International Airport.
Last week Iran executed a former defense ministry employee convicted of selling information to the US.
Last July, Iran’s intelligence ministry said it had arrested 17 people accused of collecting information on the country’s nuclear and military sectors for the CIA. The ministry said some had been sentenced to death but did not name them.
President Trump dismissed that announcement as “totally false”.
