Iran executes US, Israeli agent who spied on General Soleimani

Iran says it has executed a CIA and Mossad agent, who had been convicted of espionage for US and Israeli spying agencies, including the exposing of top anti-terror commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani’s whereabouts to them.

Mahmoud Mousavi Majd was executed early Monday, Mizan Online, the Judiciary’s news agency, reported.

Judiciary spokesman Gholam-Hossein Esmaeili had announced the death sentence during a press conference on June 9.

The convict had contacted the spy agencies, providing them with information he had gathered in various security-related areas, especially data concerning the Iranian Armed Forces, including the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), Esmaeili said at the time. According to the spokesman, Majd handed over the information to the US and Israeli spy agencies in exchange for remuneration in dollar.
