Iran To Execute ‘CIA Agent’ Allegedly Involved In The Killing Of Terrorist General Qassem Soleimani

An Iranian citizen who the regime of Iran is now accusing of being a ‘CIA Agent’ who helped US forces kill terrorist general Qassem Soleimani is now slated to be executed. As The Jerusalem Post reports:

An Iranian citizen who allegedly provided information to US and Israeli intelligence services on the whereabouts of Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps slain commander Qassem Soleimani will be executed soon, Iran’s judiciary said on Tuesday.

 On January 3, a US drone strike in Iraq killed Soleimani. Though on the record Israel has taken no credit, Israeli intelligence was instrumental in the targeted killing, NBC News reported at the time and The Jerusalem Post has independently confirmed. Jerusalem often prefers to keep a low profile on any role in such operations to reduce the chance of retaliation.
Soleimani wielded immense power and influence in his position and was crucial as the architect who spread and maintained Iran’s influence in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and elsewhere in the region through acts of terrorism.

After flying to Iraq from Damascus on a Cham Wings Airbus A320, he and his security entourage were killed by four US hellfire missiles targeting their two vehicles as they were leaving Baghdad International Airport. Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, an important leader of the Iranian-backed Popular Mobilization Forces, was also killed.

It’s unclear whether the individual slated for execution is actually a CIA spy, as Iran has in the past repeatedly made false claims on similar topics, but it has been reported that the US had ‘inside help’ in locating Soleimani before his killing.
