Iran executes CIA, Mossad informant who spied on General Qassem Soleimani

Iran has executed the CIA and Mossad informant who spied on General Qassem Soleimani.

According to the Iranian news agency, a citizen of Iran Seyed Mahmoud Mousavi Majd had links with the American CIA and Israeli intelligence Mossad and spied on General Qassem Soleimani.

Iranian media stated that Seyed Mahmoud Mousavi Majd provided intelligence to the CIA and Mossad about security officials, the armed forces, and in particular General Qassem Soleimani.

The spokesman of the Iranian judiciary, Ghulam Hussein Ismaili, while confirming the death sentence of Mousavi Majd, said that the accused was sentenced by the court of justice, and Majd was executed on Monday.

Ghulam Hussain Ismaili said that Mousavi Majd had revealed the whereabouts of the commander of the Quds Force fighting against ISIS in Iraq.

It should be noted that the United States assassinated General Qassem Soleimani, the commander of the Iranian Quds Force, in Baghdad, Iraq, on January 3 this year.

Iran has targeted a US military base in Iraq in retaliation for the assassination of General Qasim Soleimani, injuring several US soldiers, while Iranian forces mistakenly targeted a Ukrainian passenger plane crossing its borders. In which 176 passengers were killed and later Iran also admitted its mistake.

It should be noted that the US had accused Qassem Soleimani of being the mastermind of Iranian-backed militias in attacks on US forces in the region.

However, tensions between the two countries escalated after the head of the Quds Force of the Revolutionary Guards was killed in a US airstrike.

After the death of Qassem Soleimani, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei threatened the United States with dire consequences, called Qassem Soleimani the global face of resistance and declared three days of mourning in the country.

On the same day, US President Donald Trump had said that Major General Qassem Soleimani, the head of the Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, should have been assassinated long ago.

Donald Trump had said in a tweet that Qassem Soleimani should have been dealt with many years ago because he was plotting to kill many people but he was caught.

On the other hand, Iran had announced its complete withdrawal from the nuclear deal reached with the world powers in 2015.

Iran later responded by attacking the Iraqi airbase where US troops were present.

However, within hours of the attack, it emerged that high-alert Iranian forces had mistakenly blown up a Ukrainian passenger plane flying from Tehran.

All 176 people were killed when the plane crashed.

The Ukrainian prime minister confirmed that 176 people were on board, including 167 passengers and nine crew members.
