Iran to execute accused Mossad/CIA agent

The judiciary of the Islamic Republic of Iran announced that it has sentenced a an Iranian national to death, for allegedly having provided information to the CIA and Mossad. According to the charges, intelligence supplied by the defendant also pertained to the whereabouts of Major General Qassem Soleimani, the former commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ Quds Force, that facilitated his assassination in a U.S. drone strike.

“Recently, a man named Seyyed Mahmoud Mousavi-Majd, the son of Seyed Kazem, who was linked to the Mossad and the CIA and had gathered and shared with them security information, especially about the Armed Forces, including information about the victorious and powerful Quds Force and the location and whereabouts of martyr Soleimani in return for U.S. dollars, has been sentenced to death by a revolutionary court,” declared The Ayatollah Regime’s Judiciary Spokesman Gholam Hossein Esmaili, underscoring that “Branch 19 of the Supreme Court has upheld the death sentence.”

The court did not provide any evidence to support the allegations against the suspect, and TV7 has been unable to independently verify veracity of the allegations.

In other developments related to the Islamic Republic, United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres informed the Security Council that debris of weapons used in several attacks on the Aramco Oil Facilities and the Riyadh International Airport last year were of “Iranian origin.”

In a document circulated among the Council, Guterres further revealed “these items may have been transferred (to Yemen) in a manner inconsistent” with U.N. Security Council Resolution 2231, which was the sole legal basis of the 2015 deal with the Islamic Republic aimed at curbing its nuclear ambitions in exchange for international sanctions relief.

Iran’s mission to the United Nations in New York City did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
