Iran on Tuesday said that it will execute one of its citizens for providing information to the Central Intelligence Agency that led to the killing of top general Qassem Soleimani in an airstrike in January, the state-run Islamic Republic News Agency reported.
“Mahmoud Mousavi-Majd, one of the spies for CIA and Mossad has been sentenced to death,” Iranian judiciary spokesman Gholamhossein Esmaili was quoted as saying by the news agency. “He gave the whereabouts of martyr Soleimani to our enemies.”
Esmaili added that Majd spied on Iran’s armed forces and the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps’ Quds Force “in exchange for American dollars” and had been collecting information on Soleimani’s movements.
Soleimani, the head of Iran’s elite Quds Force, was killed in an United States airstrike at Baghdad’s international airport early on January 3.
